Sherlock team bringing Dracula to BBC and Netflix…

October 17th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Sherlock showrunners Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss are moving on to another classic literature creation for their next bug TV project.

The duo will produce three 90-minute episodes of Dracula for BBC in the UK and Netflix in the US.

The format is similar to the one used by the BBC when they were making Sherlock and it’s unclear at the minute if it will just be a straight adaptation of Bram Stoker’s iconic gothic masterpiece or if it will be a reimagining that will document further adventures of the king of the vampires.

We do know that, unlike Sherlock, Dracula will take place in 1897 and not in a modern day setting and will “revolve around the blood-drinking count from Transylvania who sets his sights on Victorian London.”

We can’t help but feel this will be the definitive end to the Sherlock series which, let’s be honest, to echo the words of the show’s star Martin Freeman, “Just wasn’t fun anymore”.

We’ll keep you posted once there’s more to sink your teeth into. Sorry. Not sorry.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
