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.

Remember kiddie, this tool who believes in Vampires and claims to have staked dozens (in fact, he's on reord saying he has lost count of how many Vampire's he has staked)claims to be a Bishop.

Please do me a favour and go and ask your local Vicar, Priest, Bishop etc, if they believe in Vampires.

I cannot believe the total tit wank bollocks this man is coming out with!
I wonder if he's wearing his robes as he sits there.

Sean, you're talking bollocks mate.

By the way, I'm still waiting for you to take legal action against me, even though you are meant to be unaware of this entire thread, yet have someone stating that legal proceedings have taken place.

"Lord Sutch...not a real Lord of course"

What? You mean a bit like you Sean? Lord Sean? Bishop Sean?

Let's do the hypocritical shuffle.

Balding cock.

Hi just to mention that Mr. Manchester slipped up on more than one occasion on yesterday's radio interview, points to raise here are the Wace tomb, his Church, his byronic theory, the so-called Vampire at Kirklees which he is now saying isn't a vampire.the demonic hag with red eyes, at Kirklees which he now says his colleague had an encounter with. He has always denied such claims.

He claimed that he had permission to do rituals outside on the pavement in Highgate but he did not claim to have permission to enter the tombs. Yet in his book he quite categorically states that he was lowered down using a rope. So technically that is illegal activity in the highest order and still should prosecuted. He never mentioned the Giant Spider which is a shame, and all the way through that interview we heard the presenters laughing their heads off, which is no wonder really considering the crap that was coming out of his mouth.

Yes and our good friend is right, he did stammer and stutter quite alot and did not know what he was talking about. What a blustering idiot.

That interview was utter rubbish. I've never heard so much twaddle in my life. Not to mention that he was criticizing the Church right, left and centre, claiming that the Priests do not even believe in God, and that the miracles do not exist. All I can say then he's not been to the right Church if any at all. If he told my Priest that he did not believe in God, he would be literally thrown out of the Church.

If there’s one thing the radio interview proved; Sean, you’re digging yourself in deeper and deeper. (Forgive the pun). In fact you even told a deliberate lie on the programme – but I’ll come to that later.

You were talking about the Highgate ‘vampire’, and your alleged part in that case.

Really you were reiterating what you wrote in your self-published book “The Highgate Vampire”.

In this you say that on March 13 1970 following a television transmission that evening (which featured myself), you led a mass ‘vampire hunt’ in Highgate Cemetery to find the ‘vampire’.

On this occasion, you state, you ‘rounded up’ no less than 100 people and went to the an ‘entrance’ to the Terraced Catacombs where you suspected the ‘vampire’ was in residence. You were unable to force open the huge barred doors ‘leading’ to the Terraced Catacombs but you announced that you knew another way in – through a small hole in the roof.

With two assistants, you went to this ‘hole’ and were lowered some 20 feet to the ground by means of a rope. Your unnamed assistants followed you down. There you discovered three empty coffins, but you dowsed these with holy water and left crucifixes and cloves of garlic inside them (presumably to stop the ‘vampire’ or ‘vampires’ from returning).

That was it for one night – on that occasion.

The trouble is, Sean, you have got your story badly wrong. As I have already pointed out, there is NO hole in the roof of the Terraced Catacombs and besides this, the distance from the roof to the ground is only eight or nine feet or so.

Whatever, last night on the programme you changed your story and said that you entered the catacombs from an entrance at the side. (How convenient!). You also said last night that you only discovered ONE empty coffin – yet just more evidence that proves your original story was concocted.

But the biggest ‘boob’ you have made here Sean, is that the massive barred door is not the entrance to the Terraced Catacombs at all; these lead only to the small family crypt of the Julius Beer mausoleum which contains only five family coffins. Oh dear! So you got ‘Lusia’ to pose pointing at the wrong vault!

You then described (last night) a second visit you made to Highgate Cemetery accompanied by ‘Lusia’ and four other people, including yourself You had since discovered that the vampire had taken its coffin out of the Terraced Catacombs and now ‘Lusia’ had now led you to its new resting place (the Wace family vault). You forced entry into this vault to discover the ‘vampire’ asleep in its coffin, its glazed eyes staring horribly, its mouth gorged with fresh blood.
You decline to stake the ‘vampire’ on this occasion but instead perform some ‘mumbo jumbo exorcism rite’ and seal up the vault with garlic-impregnated cement! Really?! Well, people can believe this fairy story all they want; I really want to raise another vital point . . .

Last night you stated that you had permission to break into this vault. (You must have forced the lock as the vault was obviously locked). Could you tell us here who you ‘had permission’ from?. And whether this permission extended to allowing you to stake a corpse inside the vault.

As you stated that you ‘had permission’ on the radio, surely it is not too much to ask that you state publicly who this ‘permission’ was from. The Wace relatives? The cemetery authorities? The Home Office? FROM WHOM?

For the moment,

Of course he wont reply David--has he ever replied to a simple staightforward question?
As you say he has hoist himeself by his own petard and got stuck in an untrenchable position in a corner of his own making. He now has to explain what can only be assumed to be barefaced out and out LIES which he originally got away with but now is forced to confront.

I am sure that you,me and others would be all to happy to receive staight answer to our questions but the ineviatble answer is always

Hi Alex please don't post this just saw a message that livejpurnal had been suspended. Could you please clarify the position via my email which is

Thanks Catherine

NB: Just like to say that neither David or myself have made any complaints. It would only be Manchester following his usual line when things get too hot for him to handle!
