Zombies and ghouls to the left, sexy vampires are back and the world can thank the BBC. This year, it comes from Sherlock masterminds (come on, you know you love it) Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, who have made a decision to crack open the dusty ol' coffin and let our palest king rise once again, with Claes Bang (The Square) as the titular Dracula you know and love.

Moffatt and Gatiss are known for their hit Benedict Cumberbatch-led series Sherlock.

The BBC has released the first trailer for its new adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula. Hartswood Films are producing, with co-creators Moffat and Gatiss penning the scripts. Danish actor Claes Bang (The Square, The Girl in the Spider's Web) assumes the role of Count Dracula, telling the tale of his origins in Eastern Europe, his move to England in search of fresh prey, and his battles with the legendary vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing.

Xiaomi is known for affordable value for money hardware, and something similar will be expected from the Mi Watch as well. The Mi CC9 Pro/Mi Note 10 will have three RAM options - 6/8/12 GB, and three memory configurations - 64/128/256 GB.

What we do know is that, much like Sherlock, the show will consist of three feature-length episodes, so it will definitely be something that we can sink our teeth into. Other stars of the miniseries include John Heffernan, Joanna Scanlan, Sacha Dhawan, Dolly Wells, Jonathan Aris, and Nathan Steward-Jarrett.

Dracula is expected to premiere on the BBC this winter and on Netflix outside the UK.

Wenger and Director of BBC Content Charlotte Moore Dracula commissioned the series, which is written and created by Moffat and Gatiss.
