Annie is attacked by the ghost of a murder victim, who tries to pull her through another door; however, she is saved by the timely intervention of another ghost, an enigmatic airman named Sykes, who offers to show her the true extent of her powers, and a way to fight off the forces of the afterlife.

After discovering the joys of lists, George gets a new job as an English tutor for foreign students; he soon meets a new girlfriend – and a new enemy. Mitchell turns to Ivan for help in running an addicts group for the vampire community. Professor Jaggat and Kemp experiment on Nina. George buys tranquilisers and a cage to keep his lycanthropy under control, but the suppression of his werewolf nature causes him to manifest the creature’s violent nature in his everyday life…
