BBC’s Dracula new trailer introduces the Count

The Count makes an entrance in the first trailer for BBC’s Dracula

It’s been a while since we heard anything about Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’ Dracula adaptation, which makes this first look trailer all the more sweet (and creepy). Check it out:

Here’s the official 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.

The miniseries, which will be made up of three episodes, stars Claes Bang, Jonathan Aris, Morfydd Clark, Sacha Dhawan, Mark Gatiss, John Heffernan, Tim Ingall, Youssef Kerkour, Lujza Richter, Clive Russell, Joanna Scanlan, Catherine Schell and Nathan Stewart-Jarrett.

Moffat and Gatiss created the series and wrote all three episodes. Jonny Campbell, Paul McGuigan and Damon Thomas are directing one each.
