I have the complete series and found the storyline great, the actors believable and the special effects as very good to brilliant. Sanctuary is exactly that for those who may be different to the normal accepted human we all think we are. There are Vampires, Lycans and others that are less recognisable but none the less just as believable. Woven through this are some of the events of note in the late 19th the 20th and 21st centuries. People, both real and fictional appear and there stories are intermingled in a very believable way. It could all be SO true! Thoroughly enjoyable and a series that cries out to be viewed again.
