When a young solicitor, Jonathan Harker, visits the heart of Transylvania - ostensibly to meet reclusive nobleman Count Dracula - he cannot begin to imagine what horrors might lie in store for him there… or the chain of events he will set in motion at Castle Dracula.Released yesterday (119 years to the day since Bram Stoker's world-famous novel was first published), Dracula is Big Finish's latest audio adaptation of a literary classic.
Soon, Dracula’s bloodlust spreads to England’s shores, and Harker’s fiancée, Mina Murray, becomes embroiled in his affairs. Her best friend, Lucy Westenra, falls victim to the vampire’s thirst, and it is only with the help of an unlikely bunch of allies that the Count might be defeated… but can the undead ever truly perish?
Featuring Sherlock star Mark Gatiss in the titular role, this three-hour production was dramatised for audio by Jonathan Barnes and directed by Scott Handcock.
The play can be ordered direct from Big Finish as both a digital download and a CD here, while an hour-long extract can be heard via The Big Finish podcast here.
