Episode Six - Mr Vampyre

In this episode we look into one of the most famous parties of all time, as we go to the Villa Diodati to see Lord Byron, Mary Shelley and Dr John Polidori. Each in their own way responsible for making the modern horror landscape. But why is Polidori almost forgotten? We look at the troubled life and career of the angry young man, and investigate the role a thriving intellectual scene in Norwich became a safe haven for him.
