Probably will be a contemporary setting, but that's okay if it's not dull right?
Anyway, how refreshing, as we rarely get vampire drama.
Like Bri I enjoyed it. It took a few episodes to get into it and the style but once I had I seem to recall I was hooked.I never saw it but I did see it get hammered for being *****.

Like Bri I enjoyed it. It took a few episodes to get into it and the style but once I had I seem to recall I was hooked.
There a few UK series that take some dedicated viewing to get into them.
I had that Beowulf recorded and watched the first 2 episodes and gave up on it then months later I went back and though perseverance got though episode 3 and I was hooked and loved the series. I know there loads that really hated it.
Moffat said.“There’s lots of things that are challenging about Dracula,”
“Having an evil lead character is actually really difficult. That’s been the main challenge I think. But how we’ve handled, that you’ll have to wait and see.”
“It’s been very exciting though,” Gatiss added.
“Because we sort of made a promise to ourselves and the people who are making it, paying for it, that we’d make Dracula the hero of his own story, and less of a shadowy presence.
“And that’s a really clever idea, but we had to make good on it!”
In Bram Stoker’s original epistolary novel of 1897, Dracula is only ever seen through the eyes of humans trying to escape him or bring him to heel, with the Count representing a malevolent threat to humanity without any real sense of his inner life or perspective.
According to Moffat and Gatiss, their new Dracula – played by Danish actor Claes Bang – will bring that interiority on screen. Though, as noted above, it’s not been quite as easy as they anticipated when they first pitched the reinterpretation…
“We quickly found out why he’s often kept a shadowy presence!” joked Moffat.
“So it’s hard work, but I think it’s worked. It’s worked well I think, so far.”
Dracula will be “the hero of his own story” in radical reinterpretation by Sherlock creators
“It’s seriously delightful that our new ‘Dracula’ is being shot at Bray Studios, the former home of Hammer Films. This wonderfully atmospheric and legendary studio gave birth to so many famous monsters and stars – most memorably Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. As we watch Transylvania once again rise on the sound stages of Bray, it’s amazing to be able to say that Count Dracula has finally come home.”
