Appearances and Mentions


  • Her father Alexander Tepes died due he being a haemophilia. Since fathers with heamophilia always passed the gene down to their daughters, Mrs. Irvin became a carrier of the disease resulting in her son Daniel being born a haemophilia.
  • Together with Dr. Lucas Harwick, they tried to find a way to treat Daniel. They use girls from the school to be unwitting blood donors, but it goes wrong, when a girl escapes and accuses Daniel of assault.
  • Dr. Harwick helps Daniel fake his suicide to escape the authorities, signing his death certificate.
  • Five years after they continue the treatment– letters are sent to the students, posing as a vampire and invite them to secret meetings. They have success with it, until one of the girls, Amy, is killed.
  • Mrs. Irvin tries to play ignorant to the police and even calls them when Dorothy Cornell goes missing, but Murdoch eventually figured out the truth.


  • Actress Leah Pinsent is married to Peter Keleghan who portrays the recurring character Terrence Meyers.
  • In the Tepes Mausoleum in the scene, where Murdoch and Crabtree searches the coffins of Daniel and his grandfather, a plate with the name Joseph Irvin is seen behind Crabtree.
