The evil Katherine is meddling with the town of Mystic Falls. By turning a high-school sweetheart into a vampire she upsets Elena and the two brothers. Will they kill the new addition to the vampire team or will an alternative present itself?
Meanwhile Tyler and his Uncle Mason have some anger management issues to work out – but why do they involve a moonstone?
Running in the vein of the vampire soaps made so popular by Twilight, The Vampire Diaries has everything fans of the genre would want – one bonny brother, one broody brother, and a pretty girl with shiny hair. Everyone is good looking in the aptly named Mystic Falls. Suspend your disbelief, and you may just enjoy it!
The Vampire Diaries will air on ITV1 at 9pm on Tuesday 12th October 2010 in the UK.
