Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat to Adapt ‘DRACULA’ For TV

SHERLOCK team Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat are making plans to adapt a Victorian literature icon, DRACULA, for a new TV series. Though the writing stage hasn’t begun yet, they are currently in talks with the BBC.

It’s unclear whether the series will take place on a modern day setting like Sherlock, but it will be broadcast in the same format including a mini-series worth of a theatrical length episodes per season.

Gatiss and Moffat previously co-wrote three episodes of Sherlock season 4, which aired earlier this year. The pair have also collaborated on BBC’s Doctor Who, with Gatiss writing nine episodes and Moffat serving as the series’ executive producer.

Gatiss actually starred in a stage production of Dracula as the titular vampire back in 2016 and had previously expressed a fondness for Hammer Films’ 1958 Horror of Dracula, starring Christopher Lee as Count Dracula and Peter Cushing as Abraham Van Helsing.

SHERLOCK premiered back in 2010 and to date has 14 episodes but has managed to get nominated for many awards, including Best Drama at the BAFTAs, 35 Emmy nominations and nine wins (including Outstanding Lead Actor and Supporting Actor for both leading stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman).
