It had high production values, a pretty and talented cast, and an intriguing (if hardly original) premise. But the thing was... it wasn't as great as it could have been, running on twists and good dialogue and character emotion, but overflowing with plot holes.

And then the lead actress left, taking half the supporting cast with her as she did so.

It was then rapidly retooled into a show about a kickass red-headed immortal schoolgirl named Ella who has supernatural powers with which she fights demons. Unfortunately she was blind-sided by the Anti-Christ (Cassie's sprog Malachi)'s evil plans, the demons won, and the show's second (and final) season ended with the cast divided into the evil, the very dead, and the fleeing in terror. To call it a DownerEnding would be a gross understatement, especially as one of the three survivors was actually dead anyway. Although as it ends with the DefrostingIceQueen and JerkWithAHeartOfGold happily spooning with each other while the [[NonHumanSidekick wacky ghost]] claps her hands joyfully, none of them seem to be particularly bothered about the end of the world taking place just down the road.

In both seasons, Thelma the ghost was the heroine's sidekick and speaker of memorable quips.

Notable for characters who managed to be simultaneously GenreSavvy and TooDumbToLive.

On the other hand, it had Colin Salmon and Creator/MichaelFassbender in it. And they're always awesome.

Originally marketed as The British ''Series/{{Buffy|the Vampire Slayer}}'', which was true in much the same way that ''{{Coupling}}'' was the British ''{{Friends}}'' (which, again, was part of the early hype). ''Hex'' told the story of a blonde schoolgirl named Cassie who gets supernatural powers with which to fight demons, but has her style cramped by her falling in love with the leader of the aforesaid demons, Azazeal, discovering that her destiny is to give birth to his child, the Anti-Christ.

* BringOutYourGayDead: Subverted somewhat by Thelma, taken to [[DeaderThanDead extremes]] by Maya.
** It is probably worth noting that ''every'' ghost in the series is gay.

Added DiffLines:

* ElaborateUniversityHigh: Medenham Hall is supposedly a school, but has an elaborate campus, pupils who all seem to be in their late teens, and a complete lack of supervision outside classes, that make it seem more like a university.

** Ella's seventeenth-century attempted execution as a witch, with her tied to a ladder and lowered into a fire, makes visual reference to the film ''Witchfinder General''.
