The ‘Sherlock’ Crew Is Crafting A ‘Dracula’ Miniseries For You To Feast On

In excellent news for fans of prestige British miniseries and those who enjoy literally drinking blood, a brand new take on Dracula is being formulated by the champs who brought BBC’s Sherlock to life. 

Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffatt are in talks with the UK media giant to take on Bram Stoker’s deadset classic tale in the same style as Sherlock. If all goes to plan, you’ll be feasting on movie-length eps of that Transylvanian goodness.

Both of ’em are currently working on separate projects, and pen hasn’t been put to paper on the prospective show, but Variety reports that international producers are already jockeying for some of the action. As if you wouldn’t, given the success of their previous Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman-led project.

For his part, Gatiss already seems pretty keen.

There is a downside to all of this, and that is the fact any future instalments of Sherlock are looking mighty unlikely after this year’s Christmas spesh. The plus side? We get to do a hell of a lot of speculation as to which lucky actor the show will thrust into superstardom. 

Give it to Viggo Mortensen, tbh.
