Blood Ties is a Canadian TV show that ran from 2007 to 2008. The series creator is Peter Mohan and the story arch is based on the Tanya Huff "Blood Books" novels. The premise of the show is centered on a private investigator named Vicki Nelson. Nelson, played by Christina Cox, is working as a Homicide Division detective with the Metropolitan Toronto Police when she suddenly begins to lose her eyesight from retinitis pigmentosa. Rather than take an office job offered to her, Vicki opts to leave the force altogether, much to the displeasure of Detective Mike Celluci. Detective Celluci happens to be her former partner on the force and an on again/off again lover. Vicki becomes a private investigator and develops a working relationship with Henry Fitzoy. Fitzoy happens to be a 470-year-old vampire and the illegitimate child to Henry VII of England. Henry, living a rather reclusive life in Toronto as a comic book artist, meets Vicki when a man attempts to introduce a demon by the name of Asteroth to the mortal world. From that moment on, the two of them continue to work together to defeat supernatural and paranormal threats. Henry gradually grows attracted to Vicki's approach to life and falls in love with her. Meanwhile, Detective Mike Celluci remains a friend to Vicki and grows concerned over the type of cases she's taking. He also has a difficult time coming to terms with the trust Vicki puts in Henry. That said Mike and Henry join forces whenever Vicki is in trouble. Vicki's office assistant, Coreen Fennel, also plays a role in cases thanks to her broad knowledge of the occult. She appears to have a crush on Henry and works as a mediator between Mike and Vicki in moments of tension. Coreen's character appears only minimally in the novels. She is thought to have replaced the reformed street hustler/free-spirited Tony character that is more prominently featured in the novels.
