Ultraviolet (1998)

Ultraviolet (1998)

By Tom Eames and Morgan Jeffery

Remember that vampire series on Channel 4 that starred Jack Davenport and Idris Elba before they were famous and it only ran for six episodes in 1998? No? Well, Morgan's going to refresh your memory.

For this Halloween (sort of) special, Morgan will teach Tom all about the cult British TV drama, that also starred a pre-True Blood Stephen Moyer as a vampire 10 years before his American success.

Oh, and Tom forgets Morgan's birthday.
