Now that Jack Davenport (“Smash”) and Stephen Moyer (“True Blood”) are bigger stars, a Collectors Edition DVD set of British miniseries “Ultraviolet” is on its way April 22nd, and we have all the details and a look at the artwork right here.
From the Press Release:
Dark forces are at work in “Ultraviolet,” the gripping modern-day vampire drama which comes to DVD courtesy of Mediumrare Entertainment.
Starring “Smash”’s Jack Davenport and “True Blood”’s Stephen Moyer, “Ultraviolet” aired on Channel 4 to rave reviews in the late 1990s, and it will be available on DVD on 22 April 2013. “Ultraviolet” brings the world of vampires bang up-to-date as it follows the exploits of a covert government unit that must track down and destroy Code 5 infected subjects.
Detective Sergeant Michael Colefield (Davenport) is unwittingly thrust into the nightmarish world of vampires when his best friend Jack (Moyer) disappears on the eve of his wedding to Kirsty (Collette Brown – “Doctors,” “Holby City”). His investigation leads him to uncover a secret Government organisation that hunts vampires, and Jack has become one of the hunted. Michael reluctantly joins the team which includes a soldier Vaughn Rice (Idris Elba – “Luther,” “The Wire”), scientist Angela March (Susannah Harker – “Waking the Dead,” Intimacy), and Catholic priest Pearse J. Harman (Philip Quast – The Devil’s Double, “Bed of Roses”).
Armed with an artillery of the best weaponry, the team investigates cases ranging from a woman who appears to be carrying a vampire child, a man who is being used to test synthetic blood for vampires, and the outbreak of a vampire related disease at a school as well as dealing with the consequences of their job.
With a sterling cast and nail-biting stories “Ultraviolet” is British horror/sci-fi at its best. Special features in this Collectors Edition include a brand new retrospective on the making of “Ultraviolet.”
