Hey, you know how Steven Moffatt and Mark Gatiss have worked together on both Doctor Who and Sherlock, and how the latter show grants us only three or so episodes a year (if we’re lucky), leaving Moffat gloating about their hold over the audience?
Yeah, you know. Well, guess what? They want to do that same thing to us with another series.
And, moron that I am, my interest is already piqued.
I know, I know, but dammit, they’ve hit one of my weaknesses!
No, not Skarsgård (*sigh*) … VAMPIRES. Specifically, Dracula. And you know they’re going to go totally cool, because Sherlock, and Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbundbatch, and … those damned clever colluders know just how to suck us in.
Bottom line is Bram Stoker’s Dracula, will probably star some gorgeous, irresistible, accented actor,
feature beautifully and painstakingly recreated — unless, as with Sherlock, they go modern — sets, and we’ll be utterly breathless in anticipation of whatever measly number of episodes they allot us per century, and well … I’ve pretty much already worked myself into a tizzy.
Pardon me while I ponder leads …
