The Dracula mini-series is a new jointly produced drama written and created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’. The series will premier on BBC One in the UK and elsewhere on Netflix (so no one has to miss out -woohoo!) and follow the count as he journeys from Transylvania to London. Bringing with him, nightmares, jump scares, and a few laughs along the way.
The Cast of Dracula
To the casting! Claes Bang, a Danish actor you might know from The Square or The Girl in the Spider’s Web, is playing this latest incarnation of Dracula.
And is joined by John Heffernan as Harker (Ripper Street, Eye in the Sky), Dolly Wells as Sister Agatha (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Doll & Em), Joanna Scanlan as Mother Superior (No Offence, Requiem), Morfydd Clark (The Falling, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies), Lujza Richter (Phantom Thread, The Refuge), Tim Ingal (The Favourite, The Killer Beside Me), and Clive Russell as Old Valentin (Sherlock Holmes, Catherine the Great).
Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss (also appearing in the series) will be familiar names for the Sherlock fans. Mark often shares his very beautiful art on Twitter and Instagram and I am patiently waiting to see his take on the original Dracula story by Bram Stoker, which I’m sure will happen (pretty please, Mr Gatiss?).
Dracula Mini-series Show Times?
The Dracula mini-series, a 3 episode series, wrapped filming in August and it looks like we could get the series later this year. There are rumors that the show could be scheduled for a Sunday evening slot in early 2020 but IMDb is indicating 2019 so I’m thinking we’re going to see this in December. And Mark Gatiss has even hinted at a second series -fingers crossed.
