The makers of Sherlock bring you a brand new take on the most famous vampire of them all: the magnificent, brooding, deliciously deadly Count Dracula.

Episode one: The Rules Of The Beast

1897. English lawyer Jonathan Harker travels to Transylvania to meet a new client - and a legend is about to get fresh blood...

This is the tale of a terrifying, maze-like castle, of undead Brides, and a vampire Count whose ambition is to conquer the new world.

Claes Bang stars as Count Dracula, with John Heffernan as Jonathan Harker.

Dracula also stars Dolly Wells, Joanna Scanlan, Morfydd Clark, Sacha Dhawan, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Jonathan Aris, Lyndsey Marshal, Lydia West and Matthew Beard.

Dracula is written by Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, and is made by Hartswood Films for BBC One. Episode one is directed by Jonny Campbell. Executive producers are Sue Vertue, Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat for Hartswood Films, and Ben Irving for the BBC.

Dracula is a co-production between BBC One and Netflix.
