* FreakierThanFiction: Exploding vampires are capable of blowing holes in steel walls -- about as much force as a hand grenade. However, one pound of human flesh has roughly two megajoules of chemical energy locked up in it, so if the average human's body spontaneously exploded it would be equivalent to ''sixty pounds of dynamite.''

* DefeatEqualsExplosion: Vampires don't just harmlessly crumble into dust when they're "neutralised"; they explode. Violently. Luckily, they make a noise very much like bacon frying when they reach the point of no return, giving one about three seconds to find cover when one turns into a hand grenade with the pin pulled.

He spends the series dealing with his doubts about the team's extreme methods and struggling with the personal fallout of his unexpected new life. Other key members of the team include Pearse Harman (Philip Quast), the team's leader; Vaughan Rice (Creator/IdrisElba), a former soldier who joined the cause after his squad was wiped out by vampires; and Dr Angela March (Susannah Harker), whose husband was killed by a vampire and who now studies them in search of better ways to fight them.

* HealingFactor: Vampires can heal from nearly anything; the exception is that if a vampire encounters one of the few things that can kill them and is not killed outright, the resulting injury becomes a WoundThatWillNotHeal. For instance, "In Nomine Patris" features a vampire who gets burned from a brief exposure to direct sunlight, and the burns don't get any better. Vaughan smugly notes that painkillers have no effect on vampires, so he's in constant agony.
