Forever Knight is a dramatic/adventure series that chronicles the life of Nick Knight (Geraint Wyn Davies). Nick's a handsome, 13th century vampire, living his current life in Toronto. In an effort to regain his mortality, Nick decides to atone for the last nearly 800 years of blood-thirst and evil living, by fighting crime on behalf of the Toronto police force.
"When the sun goes down, so does the crime rate..."
Ironically, neither of Nick's assigned partners in Forever Knight's three season run (1992-1996) discover what he is when working with him. They note the odd behavior, allergy to the sun, always first to the crime scene, lack of appetite, superior strength, and other not so normal traits, but never actually find out what Nick really is. Though, Schanke (John Kapelos), Nick's season one and two, wise-cracking, partner comes very close in the end.
As Nick works, Natalie Lambert (Catherine Disher), the only mortal who knows the truth about Knight, searches for a cure for his immortality. On the other side, LaCroix (Nigel Bennett), the vampire master who originally converted him to the darkness back in Paris, 1228, works against Nick's quest for a cure. He and Nick's former vampire lover and accomplice in wickedness, the beautiful vampire Janette (Deborah Duchene) try to lure him back into the darkness and accept his true nature.
"This is my city...the night is my beat...and the evil I have seen will haunt you...it will seduce you...it will chill you...and if you're not careful...it will drain you...
It's going to be a long one..."
Forever Knight is truly eternal. Even after being canceled since 1996, fans are still fighting for a return movie and more merchandise. The interest in this show is still alive and stronger than ever. To see how you can help, visit the "Save the Knight" section.
