Fangs for the Memories: TV Vampires to Die For

Want a sexy male vampire? Probably not going to get one in my book I’m afraid. Nobody could accuse Charles Ferrers of being a heart throb. A vampire more than three hundred years old (although in his forties in appearance), he is tall, lean and lethal. His well groomed appearance and impeccable manners and penchant for psychological torture don’t scream “take me Charles”, not like some of the vampiric lotharios that have adorned our TV screens over the years.

So where you can you get your “hot vampire” fix? Fear not ladies, here’s a quick round up of the best that’s available on the small screen…


A vampire detective solves crimes, battles vamps on the loose and falls in love with a newspaper reporter. This show was robbed – definitely should have been commissioned for a second series.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

A classic for a reason, with something for everyone. Whether you are an Angel or a Spike fan, your heart will get racing over someone. Personally, I’ve always had a soft spot for Giles.

True Blood

I admit that I was disappointed with this show after its departure from the Charlaine Harris’ books, but having re-watched them all again recently it gets a thumbs up. It’s much more graphic than the books, but Eric the vampire Viking makes it all worth it.

The Vampire Diaries

Yes you can love both brothers…. (but we all know Somerhalder has the edge)… enough said

Being Human UK

The only UK show in the mix and the best supernatural/ paranormal show to ever come out of Britain. A vampire, a ghost and a werewolf share a house, initially in Bristol and then in South Wales (ahem… where my own Sophie Morgan vampire series is largely based by the way). Aiden Turner, the actor responsible for bringing vampire Mitchell to life is brooding, tormented and can wear fingerless gloves like no other.


Of course, not all my characters are so cold and off limits as Charles Ferrers. You don’t need to run off for the TV boxset quite yet! Why not pick up the first “Sophie Morgan” book and find out for yourself.  Of course, it’s not all about the heartthrobs; sometimes we just want a kick-ass heroine.

Relative Strangers, the first in the Sophie Morgan series, is available in paperback and ebook at:

    Actually, Charles sounds very heartthrobbish to me, probably because we girls are programmed to go for villains nowadays. Honestly, you had me at “impeccable manners.” 😀

    I have to admit I have a soft spot for him myself but I suspect the ladies wouldn’t get very far !
