Even though the very last episode was decidedly underwhelming and the Abominable Bride nonsense was overly self-indulgent, I remain a fan of Sherlock, the first two series being virtually flawless in my opinon. Therefore I’m rather excited to learn that RadioTimes has just confirmed a report that writers Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss are teaming up to work on a series of 90-minute episodes based on Bram Stoker’s Dracula, by and large following the Sherlock format.
And that’s all we know so far. The show probably won’t turn up on TV until 2019, so we’ll probably have to wait some time before any more information. There’s not script yet, and we don’t even know if it will an updated story or a period one. To my mind, modern versions of Dracula tend not to fare very well, but if Moffat and Gatiss repeat the magic they did with Mr Holmes than we could be in for a treat.
I’m rather excited so I will report on any future developments…..
