Get ready for the new daily show

The folks who brought us the Sherlock TV Series are now working on Dracula…

June 20th, 2017 by Marc Comments

So, it’s fair to say that Sherlock is a success for the BBC.

The reimagining of the classic novels by Arthur Conan Doyle have been (reasonably) well updated to the modern age with Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and Martin Freeman and Watson.

And now the guys behind it, Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, are writing a new series based on Bram Stoker’s classic Dracula.

Both writers are currently working on their own projects but they have already engaged with the BBC and the series is now on the ‘to do’ list. Moffatt is the current showrunner on Doctor Who but is stepping down at the end of the current series at Christmas.

The king vampire’s story will, like Sherlock, be told with a miniseries run of feature-length episodes.


While  nothing is known beyond the involvement of Moffatt and Gatiss, it’s a safe bet that the series may see Dracula, like Sherlock, adapting to the modern world.

More when we get it…

And yes, we’re also thinking how awesome a crossover would be.

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….
