The television show is an expansion of an 8-episode web series that was released through the Internet in early 2007. Based on the success of the web series, Syfy decided to pick it up for a more traditional television-based 13-episode season, and it has since been renewed for a second season. The show centres on Dr Helen Magnus, a 157-year-old British scientist, and her team of experts who run the "Sanctuary," an organization that seeks out non-human intelligent creatures, or "Abnormals." The team tries to help and learn from them, while also faced with containing the more dangerous ones. In her youth, Dr Magnus was a member of a group of experimental scientists known as "The Five," which also included Nikola Tesla, Nigel Griffin, Dr. James Watson, and John Druitt. Each wanted to push the boundaries of their understanding of the physical world through unconventional means. At some point during their partnership, Magnus acquired a vial of untainted vampire blood, and used it within a serum that "The Five" then injected into themselves. They each then developed a different gift: Magnus gained a high level of longevity; Griffin acquired the power of invisibility; Watson's intellect was tremendously heightened; Druitt developed the ability to teleport through time and space; and Tesla transformed into a vampire, with the additional power of electrical manipulation.

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
