A drama about an 800 year old, angst ridden vampire, Nicholas Knight (Geraint Wyn Davies ), who lives in present day Toronto as a homicide detective in an attempt to repay for his sins and regain his mortality, with the aid of Natalie Lambert (Catherine Disher), a mortal coroner, while trying to keep his secret from his partner. His quests are hindered by his tormented past and his seductive 2000 year old master, Lucien Lacroix (Nigel Bennett).
(Nigel Bennett voice-over of theme music) He was brought across in 1228. Preyed on humans for their blood. Now he wants to be mortal again. To repay society for his sins. To emerge from his world of darkness. From his endless... forever night.
After centuries of bloodshed, Nicholas Knight has forsaken immortality and is determined to reclaim his humanity. He now spends his nights as a homicide detective with his smug partner, Donald Schanke (John Kapelos), fighting the city's most brutal crimes. Joining in Nicholas' quest is Dr. Natalie Lambert, a brilliant forensic scientist, who is inching closer to the cure for his supernatural condition. The master vampire Lucien LaCroix, however, will stop at nothing to ensure that Nicholas remains a vampire. In his darkest moments, Nicholas turns to the lovely vampire Janette (Deborah Duchene), who offers him unconditional loyalty despite her prominent standing in the vampire underworld.
Aired 1992-1995 on CBS (72 episodes).
