is a sci-fi/fantasy series created by Damien Kindler and Amanda Taping. It stars Tapping as the character of Helen Magnus, a 157 year old woman who was once the lover of Jack the Ripper. She runs a sanctuary for beings called Abnormals. These are people/creatures with special powers or beastly features (werewolves, vampires, the power of invisibility, etc).
started as a web series, but quickly made it onto television. Amanda also runs a charity based off the series, called Sanctuary for Children.
Have you seen the show?
I really enjoyed what I've seen of Sanctuary. Unfortunately, I have not watched the series through, only a spattering of episodes here and there. When I first saw it, I honestly didn't think I would care for the show at all. Carter, played by Amanda Tapping, was my least favourite character on Stargate SG-1 but I really liked Magnus, Tapping did an amazing job with this character. I also really liked the world created in Sanctuary, it was a great show that should have had many more seasons.
