SPOILER ALERT!! – Desiccated corpses, terror in the canals and a visit to the sinister House of Calvierri – not things you would see on your typical Top Ten List of Things To Do When Visiting Venice, but they are what await Amy (Karen Gillan) and her husband-to-be Rory (Arthur Darvill) when the Doctor (Matt Smith) whisks them off in the TARDIS to 16th century Italy for a romantic mini-break. They discover that the city of Venice has been sealed to protect it from the plague, although Rosanna Calvierri (Helen McCrory) has other plans. The Vampires of Venice airs Saturday, May 23rd @ 9:00 p.m. EST/PST on BBC America.
