THE battle against the dark underworld of half-lives, monsters and inhumans lies deep beneath the streets of modern-day London in the U.S. premiere of Demons. This contemporary spin on the character of Van Helsing features Luke Rutherford (Christian Cooke) as an average teenager, but with the arrival of his dead father’s best friend Rupert Galvin (Philip Glenister, Life on Mars, Ashes to Ashes), Luke’s life is about to be flipped upside down. Galvin is a straight-talking, headstrong American who has come to tell Luke his secret destiny – he’s the real-life great-great grandson of Abraham Van Helsing, the vampire hunter in Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Luke’s destined to inherit the family mantle as a warrior in the coldest of wars against the supernatural entities behind every myth and legend from vampires to werewolves and all things that go bump in the night. Demons premieres Saturday, January 2nd, 2010 @ 10:00 p.m. EST/PST on BBC America
