Airing from 1992 through 1996, this series examined the plight of Nicholas Knight, an 800 year old vampire who is determined to reclaim his humanity. In the meantime, he works as a police detective; he is assisted in both causes by coroner (and love interest) Natalie Lambert. His efforts are often mocked and sometimes thwarted by [[IHateYouVampireDad maker Lucien LaCroix]] and "Big Sister" and [[spoiler: ex?]]lover Janette [=DuCharme=].

* PhoneTraceRace: One episode had a serial killer phoning a radio psychiatrist, and killing his victims on the air; he knew about phone tracing, and was keeping his calls short enough to prevent a trace.
