Aaaarrrggh! Bad blurb! Bad blurb! Now there is no need to even open the book! Everyone knows Barnabas Collins, being a fine upstanding member of Vampires for Jesus and the American Way, can never fail when pitted against an ‘evil’ vampire. I mean,look how bored he looks. Evil obviously isn’t much in the way of a challenge.
@deadstuff: not quite – it’s ‘ABCTV’s Dark Shadows’ – late 60s BBC would never have done anything as pedestrian as a time-travel soap about a vampire. Individual episodes of ‘The Newcomers’ are far odder than individual episodes of ‘Dark Shadows’ (although the premise for the latter sounds better).
