First look of revamped Dracula miniseries revealed

Doctor Who and Sherlock writers Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat offer fresh interpretation of classic Bram Stoker novel.

BBC One and Netflix have shared photos of the upcoming co-production of Dracula, which is currently being filmed as a miniseries consisting of three 90-minute episodes.

Gatiss and Moffat, who are perhaps best known for co-writing Doctor Who and Sherlock, have stated that their show will be a reimagining of the archetypal vampire.

The Count himself will be the central focus of the narrative or as Gatiss said, “the hero of his own story and less of a shadowy presence”.

Danish actor Claes Bang (The Square, The Girl in the Spider’s Web) has been confirmed as the lead, alongside Jonathan Aris (The Night Manager, Sherlock), Sacha Dawan (Iron Fist), Joanna Scanlan (The Thick of It), and Clive Russell (Game of Thrones, Ripper Street), to name a few.

Unlike Sherlock, the setting has not been modernised and will stay true to the original time period. A short description released by the BBC confirmed that the principal locations will be Transylvania and Victorian London.

Filming has been underway since March this year, but BBC One has yet to confirm a release date.
