The Sanctuary cast: John Druitt (Christopher Heyerdahl), Helen Magnus (Amanda Tapping), Ashley Magnus (Emilie Ullerup)and Will Zimmerman (Robin Dunne).
After starting out on the internet last year, science fiction show Sanctuary is about to make its television debut – the first ever web series to make the transition to make the transition to episodic TV. The show focuses on 157-year-old Dr Helen Magnus (Amanda Tapping), a scientist who’s devoted her life to finding and helping the supernatural monsters and creatures who populate the world, out of sight of the human race. She’s helped out by her all-action daughter Ashley ( Emilie Ullerup) and psychiatrist Will Zimmerman (Robin Dunne), her reluctant protégé.
In a groundbreaking move for a TV show, Sanctuary’s gone down the route of Sin City and 300 to film predominantly in front of green, with intricate CG sets built around the actors. You can get a glimpse of what to expect in this

If that’s whetted your appetite, the show starts airing on ITV4 at 9pm on Monday 6 October.
