Is Professor Petros Lorrimor...

...a very sweet homage to the wonderful Peter Cushing? "Lorrimor" could come from his character in those two modern-day (early 70s) Dracula films, Lorrimer Van Helsing, descendant of the original Professor. Makes sense given his portrayal of the original character in Hammer's first two vampire films.
Anyone?

We don't see enough of him as a character so the homage could be to Van Helsing as played by Cushing.

Well, give both his will and diary - see "Harrowing of Harrowstone" part 1 - both state he studied evil in order to fight it, that sounds just like Cushing as Van Helsing...

I think he's an homage to a different Peter. Just say his last name out loud...

I have. I'm afraid I'm not getting it. Mind spelling it out for a dunce (or at least someone who's not getting it)? :D

Of course: Famous film star and instantly recognizable voice, Peter Lorre!


Ah! Of course! That makes sense! :D

Could be a multiple references in one.
