Piers Wenger, controller of BBC Drama, had this to say about the new Dracula series in a statement.

Bram Stoker's Dracula is coming to the small screen courtesy of Netflix and the BBC.

While the specific details of Moffat and Gatiss's Dracula reinvention endeavor have not been revealed, they seem to be telegraphing a story about the subjective duality of evil and heroism.

News crossed the wires in June past year that Sherlock duo Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss were turning their attention to a new literary icon, planning a Dracula series.

Based on Bram Stoker's 1897 Gothic horror novel of the same name, Dracula will follow the titular fang-toothed count as he attempts to move from Transvylania to Victorian London in hopes of finding fresh blood and spreading his curse to others. United Kingdom fans can catch the show on BBC One, and for those of us living outside of the United Kingdom, we'll be able to catch the show on Netflix.

It was also the first time that Netherlands have defeated Germany by a margin of three or more goals. Ryan Babel's header from a corner crashed against the crossbar and Van Dijk converted the rebound.


"Dracula" marks another collaboration between Moffat and Gatiss after they combined efforts on episodes on Hartswood-produced "Sherlock".

In addition to his work on Sherlock and Dracula, Moffit also served as executive producer and showrunner on Doctor Who for several seasons.

Who do you think should play Dracula this time around?

"We can't wait to bring Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss' brilliant storytelling to our members around the world and we are eager to collaborate on yet another series with the BBC". BBC chief Tony Hall has talked about the threat posed by the streamers and USA tech firms to the pubcaster, but they have teamed for shows including "Troy: Fall of a City" and "Duty/Shame". Dracula however, will follow the model of Peaky Blinders, releasing as a Netflix original in the States. Sue Vertue's Hartswood Films is set to produce. BBC Studios Distribution is the global sales firm.
