- "Vampire" was the first ever episode of Subjects written, with it's first draft by Charlie Ilett, based on a novel he wrote when he was eleven. It was intended to be the first episode of the season, but was pushed back.
- The original draft didn't feature the deaths of George's parents, and included the caretaker of the school working with Charles to kill the team.
- Charlie Ilett and Michael Villar Noguera, who portray Charles and George, also played the two thugs at the beginning of the episode.
- "Vampire" was the first episode to feature Freeman Forest, named after the actor Martin Freeman.
- Tina Cress was only included in the script hurriedly, in a last draft.
- When Theodore and Alexis hear a "pupil talking" from inside their tent, the sound actually resembles some kind of animal call or cry.
- George tells Alexis that the episode is set on the five year anniversary of his parent's deaths, but the opening of the episode displays the text "Six years ago".
