Netflix have revealed exactly when international viewers will get to see the Prince of Darkness in action
The new incarnation of Dracula may not yet have even risen from the grave this side of the Atlantic. But already plans are afoot for his conquest of the world. The new series by Doctor Who’s Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat was a BBC/Netflix co-production. And though a little while ago the BBC announced that it would air in the UK and Ireland over three consecutive nights, it was unknown how long it would take American fans, and those around the globe, to receive a visit from the Undead.
But Netflix have now revealed that all three episodes will drop on their streaming services just one day after the final episode arrives on British screens. January 4th is the day to circle in blood on your calendars.
“All you have to do is invite me in…”
It will also appear on Netflix’s services around the world on the same day. And, thanks to Netflix Philippines, we have the official Netflix trailer for Dracula. Including new footage unseen in the BBC trailers, it whets the appetite even more for the forthcoming drama. Even for those who never drink… wine.
The series stars Claes Bang as Dracula, John Heffernan as Jonathan and Morffyd Clark as Mina. It also features Catherine Schell (Doctor Who: City of Death, Space:1999) as Grand Duchess Valeria, and Sacha Dhawan (An Adventure in Space and Time) as Dr. Sharma.
In Transylvania in 1897, the blood-drinking Count is drawing his plans against Victorian London. And be warned: the dead travel fast. A new three part adaptation from the minds of Doctor Who’s Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss. Dracula begins New Year’s Day on BBC One and arrives on Netflix in other countries on the 4th of January.
