His late father's best friend, Rupert Galvin (Philip Glenister, LIFE ON MARS), travels all the way from America to reveal to the oblivious teenager that he is the last descendant of Abraham Van Helsing, the famous vampire-werewolf-and anything-in-between slayer. Rupert offers to train Luke for his new duty, and demonstrates a certain expertise in getting rid of evil creatures... being an accomplished demon-hunter himself. Another fundamental aid to the youngster's supernatural new mission comes from none other than Mina Harker (Zoe Tapper, SURVIVORS), a good-hearted, blind, piano virtuoso vampire, once romantically linked to Dracula. To complete this unusual squad comes Ruby, Luke's clever and enamoured best friend. Will Luke be up to the demanding role of World's new defender against evil? ...Demons - Season One - 2-DVD Set ( Demons - Season 1 ) ( The Last Van Helsing )
