Sanctuary, the Canadian sci-fi series written by Melbourne-born writer Damian Kindler, will have its Free to Air premiere on ABC2, Monday March 1st at 9:30pm.
The series follows the adventures of the beautiful, enigmatic and always surprising Dr Helen Magnus (Amanda Tapping), her new recruit, forensic psychiatrist Dr Will Zimmerman (Robin Dunne) and her fearless daughter Ashley (Emilie Ullerup). Together they track down, study and protect the strange and often terrifying creatures that secretly populate our world and live among us.
Although dismissed as monstrous figments of our imaginations and the stuff of our childhood nightmares, Magnus recognizes that the world is full of nature’s mistakes and triumphs and has the spectacular proof that they are indeed real.
Will, an insightful psychiatric profiler with a knack for finding the strange and curious, reluctantly joins the team to aid in the study of beings he can hardly believe himself. Together, Magnus, Will, Ashley and quirky tech-whiz Henry (Ryan Robbins), use their unique combination of instinct, medicine and cutting edge technology to find the creatures that lurk in the corners of our civilization and protect us from those too dangerous to be roaming free.
Sanctuary is from the creative team behind the successful Stargate series.
A second series started yesterday on the SciFi Channel.
