Vampire Hunter Drama Part 3 is part two, and there's a link in there to part one.

Anyway, the arch rival of Sean Manchester, the guy who has been annoying me since I was a teenager and the subject of the last two posts on the subject has emailed me as of last night. This guy has a criminal record a mile long, from digging up corpses and violating them on down.

But at least he's more eloquent in his madness than Machester. here's David Farrant's email to me.

Dear Alex Lucard
I was most intrigued by all your comments here about the so-called Highgate Vampire; not least about myself being a 'vampire hunter'! It would appear that you arrive at most of your conclusions about the Highgate Case and myself from sensational accounts you have gleaned from the internet the problem is however that almost invariably, most of this inaccurate sensationalism as been posted up by Mr Sean Manchester himself (Please note he is NOT a genuing bishop) and if you check back on these accounts you will see that I have only been forced to correct unfounded public allegations made by Mr Manchester himself - albeit frequently hiding behind his usual aliases.

It is not my intention to argue against all the points you have recently made on the insidepulse website, as I appreciate you, like anybody else are entitled to personal opinions (however wrong or misguided these have proved to be in your particular case).

I will just say one thing however, to set the record straight for you - ... I am NOT a 'vampire hunter', in reality I am just a psychic investigator and I do not even accept the existence of 'blood sucking vampires'. Mr Manchester apparently does (as he has publically stated in his self-published book The Highgate Vampire), but that is really his problem! In passing, I can conclude by saying that my non-acceptance of Mr Manchester's ridiculous public claims he makes about 'vampires', has been the main reason for his campaign of hatred against members of The British Psychic and Occult Society and myself.

Yours Sincerely
David Farrant
President BPOS.

NB: In the event that you might be interested my main website can be found at also could I refer you to Occult Forums International Vampire Thread, Off Topic Occult. The link is from which Mr Manchester has just been publically banned (within the last 3 or 4 days or so.

SHUTUPSHUTUPSHUTUP! Sigh. My email to him

Ummm...Dave? That column you read of mine was me printing the whack job hilarious emails Manchester sent me. Re-read the column. Those are his words, not mine with me making fun of him at the end.

It was in reference to the column I wrote back in Jan '05 ( where I recanted the entire Highgate vampire saga.

I know Manchester very well. And by that I mean, I know him by reputation very well, as he's been the butt of American folklorists and parapsychologists for as long as I can remember. Norrine Dresser, Paul barber, Carol Page. All of us snicker quite profusely at the whole "Highgate Vampire" incident.

I'll tell you what I told Manchester: Stop acting like children. Both of you. This happened 30 years ago. My god, both of you are old enough to be at retirement age soon and you're carrying on like schoolchildren about an event maybe 5% of the world remembers and only a fraction thereof even cares that it occured.

All your sniping between the two of you does makes you both look foolish and foppish. Like attention whores deserpately clinging to some sort of public limelight when one of you just needs to start completely ignoring the other. I don't care if he starts it, or is just really good at getting your goat, because the end result is STILL the two of you bickering of the world wide web. Please stop.

I've followed this debate for a while now and it seems that Sean Manchester claims to be too busy to talk the common man, yet has all the time in the world to post on forum boards.

The reason why I know it's Sean, is simply because his writing has slipped from 3rd to 1st person style many a time, albeit it only for one point here and there.

Alas Sean, you can't expect to do that and get away with it.

The catalyst for your error's, seems to hinge on any point that doesn't sit well with you.
I've noticed that you sandwich your slip up between cut & paste sections.

In psychology, we'd no doubt see this as a common trait of defensive mechanisms when confronted by subtle angst.

Mr Sean, I noticed that you said the photo's are misrepresented, but you didn't comment on HOW they were misrepresented.

Why was you dressed as a Satanist?
It's obvious you are charging the knife in the picture.
The article from the newspaper was pretty self explanatory and I'm confused why you'd deny it when it is clearly you.
I've noticed that you are all too ready to bad mouth John Pope and link him to David, but it seems that you are the one in collusion with him.

You also mentioned that he writes for an NF magazine and responded that the info was available online.
I've taken your word for it and searched extensively for it, but to no avail.
Would you be so kind as to link us up to the offending article please?

I'm rather curious that as a man of the cloth, you seem to spend an awful amount of time online engaging in petty squables that date back some 35 years.
Bizarre behaviour really.

I'm also interested in where you conduct your services or Bishoply public duties.
Apart from your own website, I cannot find a single shred of evidence, that you have ever held a public mass other than at your parents and Diana Brewsters funerals, which in the grands scheme of things Bishoply, don't really count.

Also, could you please let me know what University you attended to study for your Theology degree?

David, as much as I'd like to question you, it seems as though you have answered most of the questions posed on your website or on the various forum boards that litter the internet.

I'll thankyou in advance for pointing me in the right directions Sean.
And if, as you say, you are not Sean, then whoever you are, perhaps you can be so kind as to point me in those directtions.
It's obvious you have a huge, vast and somewhat extensive knowledge of Sean's diary, even if you have answered questions in the 1st (strange, odd and disturbing) so failure to come up with these answers will look extremely bad on your part.

Once again:

Where is the online external link that provides info about John Pope writing for an NF magazine?
If it's an NF website, what are you doing onit in the first place.

What University did you go to to study for your theology degree?

Where do you conduct your public services?

Why was you dressed as a Satanist?

Why was you working with John Pope on the Nazi article?

That'll do for starters.

Thankyou for your time.

I'd appreciate it, if David & Co can leave this particular topic alone as I'd like to get the answers straight from Sean.
many thanks.

For the umpteenth time, Sean Manchester is not only NOT posting here, but he is probably not even aware of this blog's existence.

But then you knew that already, didn't you?

Your abuse is not for Sean Manchester. It's for the public.

I see still no answers from the great man himself but just another tirade of abuse to one of our valued friends. Just goes to show that Mr. Manchester cannot answer a simple question, and why? Because he has no answers. He can't even let us know where his Church is? How stupid is that?

Certainly like to see an answer to all these questions myself. But I fear that we’ll all have a very long wait. If he was a genuine bishop, he would want to answer immediately – that really says it all. Still, let’s see . .

Just wanted to give notice here that tomorrow (June 12th) between 8pm and 10pm (American time), Mr. Manchester is to give a pre-recorded interview for “World of the Unexplained” radio. (It goes out at 1am June 13th English time).

I in fact gave a live two hour interview for them on May 29th, which should soon be available from their archives. (My interview was mainly about the ‘Highgate Vampire’ case, but I also answered several questions about Mr. Manchester’s alleged role in this. Mr. Manchester was invited to meet me live on my interview but he refused under all circumstances. (I wonder why?!).

He was also asked to do his interview on June 12th live and take listeners’ questions. Again, he refused with some pathetic excuse that he was ‘very busy’ and could not stay up so late. (Considering that he stays up virtually 24 hours posting malicious nonsense about myself on the Internet, that is also a pretty lame excuse!).

Well, at least there will be no room for his ‘alter ego’ to speak on the show He has agreed to do it in person – albeit totally unwilling to face myself.

Just thought you folks might be interested. In fact, I’ll ask Catherine to post a direct link here later. I shouldn’t think Alex will mind that.

Hi there folks. The weblink is You will need something like Real Player or an updated version of Windows Media Player to listen to the show, but the rest is straight forward.

Enjoy the pantomime folks.

Thanks for the link Alex. Don't know why we obliged him really, inviting people to listen to all his 'waffle'.

Just a word of warning though! If Mr. Manchester is asked about any 'vampires' he has killed, he inevitably replies that you cannot 'kill' a 'vampire' as it is not 'dead' in the normal sense. You can only 'exorcize' them.

It's a good get out! Listen out for this one folks!
