"The Lady Vanishes" is a Halloween-themed episode from the sixth season of the British sitcom 2point4 Children. Although the action takes place on Halloween, the episode was first broadcast on BBC 1 almost a month after the holiday on November 21, 1996.
The series is based around the character of Willemina Porter (better known as "Bill"), her husband Ben Porter, their teenage children Jenny and David, Ben's work colleague Christine and Bill's friend Rona. Bill is usually much more sensible than her somewhat immature husband Ben (who may be child 0.4 referred to in the title). However, she sometimes jumps to wild conclusions that can have serious consequences. The Porters often find themselves in very strange situations and appear to live in a world where almost anything can happen.
In the episode, Bill, who is already nervous because David is out delivering pizzas on what looks like being a stormy weekday night, becomes convinced that she is living next door to a vampire, possibly Count Dracula himself. When she finds out that her son is in the neighbor's house, she, Rona, Ben and Christine determine to break in, defeat the vampire and rescue the boy.
