I don't think the series has dated particularly well, but the concept and the characters have held strong over the years. This is a classic love story, the story of Vincent, the beast, and Catherine, the beauty. Their love is for romantics everywhere.
If you are not familiar with this story, I recommend a trip to the Internet Movie database to find out more about Beauty and the Beast.
Catherine is an assistant district attorney and her world is 'above' and Vincent's world is 'below' in the secret tunnels under New York.
In the series, Vincent and Catherine did have a baby called Jacob and, building on that I moved the story forward twenty years and as Vincent had Catherine, I gave Jacob Jemma.
Because this is based on the secret tunnels, there are a couple of secret stories for you to find as you read.
