Brilliant - as good as Christmas Carol was bad.

Episode Two nowhere near as good but still worth watching.

But Episode Three excellent again; they should have done it as a two parter. Clever, intelligent, funny and complex.

The original Dracula novel was written in the late Victorian era by Dubliner Bram Stoker - who was personal assistant to Henry Irving, an accomplished Shakespearen actor.

Irving also owned the Lyceum Theatre in London - which Stoker managed for him.

Stoker often visited Scotland and Whitby for holidays and research. Whitby - where Dracula's ship eventually landed - is still grateful for the publicity.

Whitby Abbey which continues to eerily look down at the town - was supposed to be where the Count lived - and is part of the popular Dracula Tour.


Goths are also frequent visitors - along with some ghouls, and the like...

Actually, in the novel, the Count ‘lived’ at Carfax in Purfleet, Essex. Whitby was where Lucy Westenra (D’s blood ‘supply’) lived and, as you say, where the ship Demeter came to shore and Dracula landed as a wolf. Goths do indeed visit it and there is a hugely attended annual Goth festival held there.

Sadly, I think Dracula ended up disappearing up its own arse by trying to be too clever and ended up a hotch potch mess... loved the first episode, hated the second and lost almost all interest in the third. Read Bram Stoker’s 1897 original novel... one of the most exciting and innovative books ever - without constant neck biting (a trap every Dracula film has fallen into), pointless time and character changes, texted witticisms and, err..., tongue-in-cheek quips. And I’m not sure I like this TV trend of taking classics and rewriting them (fucking them up) for modern day consumption...

I watched it and by the end of the first episode i was wondering just who this cockney wideboy Dracula was reminding me of and why it was irritating me so much.

Go on Youtube and watch the moron Jaykay Jamiraquai getting a well deserved headbutt in the face.

The voices are EXACT...
