• Eye worm infection 'could spread to UK'

    An eye infection caused by a parasitic worm increasingly common in mainland Europe could spread to the UK, pet owners are being warned.

At its best, that elevated the material beyond being a mere vampire show. Serving up satisfying doses of payback and revenge, this season peaked several episodes ago -- when Setrakian (David Bradley) ingeniously dispatched his one-time concentration camp tormenter Eichhorst (Richard Sammel), right-hand man to the Master, the ancient being who unleashed a vampire plague upon the world.
