Demons: Series 1 (Blu-ray) - £6.99 @ Base

Luke Rutherford (Christian Cooke) is leading the normal, somewhat boring life of any London teenager, when an incredible revelation about his ancestry rocks his world. His late father's best friend, Rupert Galvin (Philip Glenister, LIFE ON MARS), travels all the way from America to reveal to the oblivious teenager that he is the last descendant of Abraham Van Helsing, the famous vampire-werewolf-and anything-in-between slayer. Rupert offers to train Luke for his new duty, and demonstrates a certain expertise in getting rid of evil creatures... being an accomplished demon-hunter himself. Another fundamental aid to the youngster’s supernatural new mission comes from none other than Mina Harker (Zoe Tapper, SURVIVORS), a good-hearted, blind, piano virtuoso vampire, once romantically linked to Dracula. To complete this unusual squad comes Ruby, Luke’s clever and enamoured best friend. Will Luke be up to the demanding role of World’s new defender against evil?


Great price - awful series. Voted hot for the deal.

Yep, hence why it was cancelled after series 1. Still hot.

Think this isn't HD think it's upscaled SD...

Looks like your spot on doctorblue just looked for reviews and this
is taken fron petecullen.net.So its probably on a par with some of the sub standard
EIV releases.So about its money.

Audio Visual
Demons is released day and date on both DVD and Blu-ray, and I was intrigued by it as the show was never broadcast on ITV HD. Reason? Well it’s not actually shot in HD so what we have here is essentially a presentation that is slightly better than an upscaled DVD.

This 1080p MPEG4 transfer has clearly come direct from the regular SD broadcast master and no effort has been put in to make it pop and shine and it really notices. Watch a show that’s shot in HD such as Torchwood and the quality is leaps and bounds better than what is on display here.
The episodes do look better than an upscaled DVD though, but the image is rather flat and as a lot the action takes place at night it can look rather muddy at times.

There’s nothing actually bad to say about the picture other than it’s not proper HD so to be honest I can’t really see why the series has been granted a Blu-ray release.

Sound is also two channel stereo, not even Dolby Digital.
