SHERLOCK and DOCTOR WHO Showrunner Steven Moffat Creating New DRACULA TV Series

20 June 2017

Work on the project has not begun as of yet as Moffat and Gatiss are both still tied up with individual commitments (the final season of Moffat's tenure on Doctor Who is about to conclude, but he won't officially bow out until this year's Christmas special), but negotiations are already underway with the BBC.

The brains behind the BBC's Sherlock series are to make a new version of Dracula, the corporation has confirmed. But talks are already underway with the BBC - which enjoyed huge success with "Sherlock" - on broadcast rights in the United Kingdom.

Wounded Congressman Scalise sends Father's Day message
Scalise sustained a gunshot wound to the hip that broke bones, caused damage to internal organs and caused severe bleeding. Peter King, R-Iowa; Newt Gingrich; Rush Limbaugh; and others to blame it on the left's harsh criticism of President Trump.

As of now, it's unclear whether it will be adapted to a modern setting and if Cumberbatch will (hopefully) be attached. While details are scarce, Variety is reporting that the show would be in the same format as Sherlock, i.e., a miniseries of sorts with multiple seasons (if the production deal goes through). BBC's global distribution also went a long way towards making Sherlock a worldwide hit, so Dracula seems very likely to end up there. Not so much? Have you stuck with Sherlock all this time? Gatiss also has experience with horror from his adaptation of M.R. James' The Tractate Middoth in addition to co-writing and starring in a ghost story called Crooked House.

Yes, we're getting another Dracula adaptation. At this point, time - which the immortal Dracula has plenty of - will tell. The important thing for the new series is to make Dracula exciting and terrifying again.

Supreme Court pushes Redskins' name fight back to society
The Slants had support from liberal and conservative groups, ranging from the American Civil Liberties Union to the U.S. The group opposing the Redskins trademark registration said they were disappointed with Supreme Court's decision.

Gatiss played Dracula himself in a radio version of the story that was released past year on the anniversary of the book's publication.

It's clear that Moffat and Gatiss are looking to recapture something of the success of their previous work by tackling another piece of Victorian fiction, and we've no doubt that they'll be able to. Unleash your fangs in the comment section below!

Champions Trophy triumph is a massive boost for Pakistan cricket, says Arthur
Put in to bat, Pakistan rode on a century by opener Fakhar Zaman to post a massive total of 338/4 in the allotted 50 overs. Credit goes to my boys. "Amir bowled brilliantly but all my bowlers bowled really well".
