I tend to blow hot and cold on writing collaborators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat: I loved Sherlock for around two thirds of its length, but I feel that, thanks to them, Dr. Who has become more interested in shoving PC stuff down our throats than anything else. However, I’m always up for a new version of Dracula, especially as this one was partly shot at Bray Studios where so many of Hammer’s classics were filmed. This one will consist of three 90 minute episodes that will be shown on BBC One in the U.K. and Ireland, then will be available to watch on the Netflix streaming service internationally. Claes Bang stars as the Count.
A trailer has been released, and you can watch it below. I think it looks rather good, even if there’s a lot of stuff that wasn’t in the novel. Just check out those stake-wielding nuns! We don’t know when it’s going to be shown yet, but my guess is around Christmas, and my review will follow shortly after!
