Yes, I bought the DVD about a month ago. I was a really good, modern take on
vampires (who, BTW, are never mentioned by that name during the series). I
understand the sequel was cancelled because one of the main actors (Idris
Elba, IIRC) was lured to the American version of the series which, AFAIK,
hasn't yet surfaced.


p.s. Shadow of the Vampire was quite enjoyable as well, just watched it this
night =).
