Re: New Dracula show for the BBC

Hadn't thought of that Susi, but you're right.  There hasn't been much hype.  Like you, I believe in Mark and Steven enough to give it a chance but I am still very curious about what they're twist on the mythology will be.

Re: New Dracula show for the BBC

I don't pay attention to hype anyway (not that I avoid it, just that I probably look in the wrong places!) so for me, I've heard more about this than any other upcoming show! 

I'm curious as well!  I was just thinking that there have been so many modern vampire stories, often with sympathetic vampires, that getting closer to the original is almost a twist in itself!

Re: New Dracula show for the BBC

That's kind of true. There haven't been a lot of "historical" or "period" vampires in a while.

Re: New Dracula show for the BBC

Just back from seeing Mark in London.
He was asked about Dracula: I asume you all saw the story about Benedict's vampire shadow!

Re: New Dracula show for the BBC

Yes, I saw the story!  Funny that Sherlock was the inspiration ... although I believe they have always had an interest in the story, especially Mark.  I'm really looking forward to it.

Re: New Dracula show for the BBC

I was discussing with another girl I met there: like I said, vampires really not my thing, but I will watch anything from Mark and Steven.

Re: New Dracula show for the BBC

I didn't see that story. But that's interesting that the influence on their work continues outside Sherlock.

Re: New Dracula show for the BBC

Oh, just in case...
From what Mark said at the interview I attended:
-they were in the middle of filming S3.
- they attended some big BBC do.
- Mark bumped into some big BBC exec he knows and just happened to show him the latest image of Sherlock, he had on his phone
- it was the silhouette of Benedict against Mrs Hudson't door.
-Mark sad to the guy; see that, looks like Dracula!
They guy replied: do you want to make that series?

Re: New Dracula show for the BBC

Ha! Interesting, even though I'm sure things might not have been quite as simple as that!

Re: New Dracula show for the BBC

We might have to try and remember JUST how successful Sherlock was for them at the time and how it had won all of the awards...

Re: New Dracula show for the BBC

True, but I'm sure there were other conversations following that one.

Re: New Dracula show for the BBC

Of course, but the interview question was how did the idea come about.

Re: New Dracula show for the BBC

It seems Van Helsing will be female in this new adaptation.

https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/8958842/bbc-female-van-helsing-dracula/

Interesting - how will they pull it off, if it´s supposed to take place in Victorian Era proper? Will Van Hellsing be one of those super skillful ninja types Steven Moffatt seems to like? https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/lol.png

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?
