This is Leicestershire, January 05, 2009, TV review: Demons by Jeremy Clay
Well, it’s taken a while, but it’s finally happened. We’ve had our revenge for Dick Van Dyke.
So take a bow Philip Glenister. Actually, on second thoughts, don’t.
In Demons (7.20pm, Saturday), ITV’s bold but backfiring attempt to create a British Buffy, Glenister used an American accent so ropey you half expected to hear the director shout “Cut!” every time he opened his gob.
That shout never came. Perhaps everyone realised he was doing a splendid job of drawing attention away from Demons’ many shortcomings.
