Demons is a supernatural drama television series from ITV1 that aired in 2009. The show revolves around a young man named Luke Rutherford, who discovers that he is the last descendant of the famous vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing. Luke has inherited his ancestor's powers and must therefore protect humanity from magical creatures that threaten to destroy it.

The show begins with Luke celebrating his 18th birthday, unaware of his family heritage. He is a typical teenager, living with his foster parents and attending college. However, his life takes a dramatic turn when he is hunted down by a group of vampires who want to use his powers for their own gain. Luckily, he is rescued by the mysterious and beautiful vampire hunter, Ruby.

Ruby, played by the talented actress, Holliday Grainger, takes Luke under her wing and teaches him how to use his powers. The two of them form an unlikely alliance to fight the demons that threaten to overrun the world. Along the way, they encounter other demon hunters, including Father Simeon, who is a member of a secret order that has been fighting demons for centuries.

Demons combines elements of horror, action, and drama to create a thrilling viewing experience. The show has a unique blend of humor and darkness, which makes it appealing to a wider audience. The special effects and makeup are top-notch, adding to the overall ambiance of the show. The demons themselves are particularly impressive, with each one having its unique powers and twisted appearance.

One of the highlights of the show is the relationship between Luke and Ruby. The two of them have excellent chemistry and play off each other well. Luke is initially reluctant to fight demons, having lived a sheltered life, but Ruby is the perfect mentor, nurturing and patient. Their relationship also has a romantic aspect, which adds an extra layer of tension to the show.

The supporting cast is equally compelling, with Philip Glenister playing the role of Rupert, Luke's adopted father. Glenister is an accomplished actor, best known for his role in the cult classic, Life on Mars. The character of Rupert is complex, and Glenister brings depth and nuance to the role.

Christian Cooke, who plays Luke, is also impressive, delivering a convincing and nuanced performance. Luke's journey from a naive teenager to a confident demon hunter is well-executed, and the character's growth is believable and satisfying. The supporting cast is rounded out by actors such as Mackenzie Crook, who plays the role of Gladiolus Thrip, a werewolf who is converted to the side of good.

Demons is a well-crafted show that combines horror, action, and drama to produce a thrilling viewing experience. The characters are complex and engaging, the special effects are impressive, and the plot is well-crafted. While the show only lasted for one season, it remains a cult favorite among fans of supernatural drama. The show also spawned a series of novels by the same name, which further explored the world of demons and demon hunters.

In conclusion, Demons is a must-watch for fans of supernatural drama. The show has a unique blend of horror, action, and drama that sets it apart from other shows in the genre. The characters are complex and engaging, and the special effects are top-notch. Despite only lasting for one season, Demons has left a lasting impression on fans and remains a cult classic.
