The Cast

  • Geraint Wyn Davies as Detective Nicholas "Nick" Knight
  • Lisa Ryder as Detective Tracy Vetter
  • Catherine Disher as Natalie Lambert
  • Nigel Bennett as Lacroix
  • Ben Bass as Javier Vachon
  • Blu Mankuma as Captian Joe Reese

By the third season, it had become clear that Schanke's character could not be taken seriously, and it was too late to refashion him as a thinking, progressive foil to Nick's increasing introspection, so they they chucked him in the shower, sorry, blew him up. Fairly clumsy and brutal, but final.

His replacement, Tracy, while undoubtedly breathing fresh life into a tiring franchise, also provided another plot short cut for the lazy scriptwriters: her father is a very, very senior man in the police. So, as the mood takes, he can help, hinder or completely sidetrack the plot, avoiding the need for more complex and believable challenges.

Lacroix continued to read the moral of the story and provide a "get out of jail free" card when the plot got bogged down (2-3 times an episode by now), and would you believe it, an amazing string of coincidences allows Tracy's vampire boyfriend to simply zoom in and save the day in two episodes.

As the show ground down to its finale, it became increasingly difficult to care one way or another about the characters (except a fond desire to stake Lacroix), and the end was a blessed release. No surprises, no celebrations. And we'd done the mourning already.

I've said it before and I'll say it again; it's not enough to have good actors, a believable vampire world or even great production values. Vampire television lives or dies on a credible story, well told. Forever Knight will always be a 'could have been so much better' show.
