Dracula: Steven Moffat shares pictures from set as filming kicks off

Posted Filed under

Filming began yesterday (March 4th 2019) on Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’ Dracula TV series, which is the Sherlock pair’s latest new project for BBC One. Moffat, former Doctor Who showrunner, even took to Instagram to share some snaps…

The series, which will consist of three 90-minute episodes (just like Sherlock), has cast Claes Bang as its vampire protagonist. The Danish actor (pictured above) previously appeared in the Cannes-winning film The Square and last year’s The Girl In The Spider’s Web.

As was originally reported by a Twitter user called Ruther2, who previously led the highly influential fan movement ‘Setlock’, filming began on Dracula on March 4th.

Moffat, co-creator of the series, later shared these images on Instagram to prove that Ruther2 was right and filming had indeed begun…

And if you’re after some more info, the BBC’s official press bumf gives us this teasing synopsis for the show:

“Three feature length episodes will re-introduce the world to Dracula, the vampire who made evil sexy. In Transylvania in 1897, the blood-drinking Count is drawing his plans against Victorian London. And be warned: the dead travel fast.”

We don’t yet know the release date for Dracula, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted as we hear more about this exciting production.
