“Blood and Bone China” synopsis
It’s 1897 and a city is in turmoil. In the smoky, dirty depths of middle England, the people are terrified. The once bustling streets of Stoke are empty, the silence is only broken by the whispers of devils, demons and vampires. Poor souls are being taken, vanishing without a trace.
When the local doctor is snatched away, word travels to his brother, a young vet by the name of Newlyn Howell. Spurred on to discover the truth by the enigmatic Alexander Pyre, Newlyn’s dark adventure into
the depths of Victorian Stoke beginsâ€¦ and what he discovers is beyond belief.
“Making a period drama on a tight budget is a challenge, but I’m quite lucky in that my home town of Stoke-On-Trent (where the series is set) still has a lot of Victorian features. All of the actors have been superb in helping to develop their characters and we have great fun on set.”
The world premiere was on March 2nd at the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery in Stoke-On-Trent. Chapters 1-4 were shown on the big screen to a packed house. Props and costumes from the series were on display, as well as authentic police documents from a real vampire case that has inspired one of the later episodes.
Chris has already received interest from around the world regarding the series.
Blood and Bone China is online now!
