A strange one.

I'm a SHERLOCK fan so I had hopes for this. It's not bad but it isn't very good either. Feels like a wasted opportunity.
Gatiss and Moffat are clearly big Hammer Films fans and they try to homage them all over the place but I'd prefer to see something new.
Bang's performance is intentionally hammy, sometimes it worked for me, sometimes it didn't.
I was expecting a modern interpretation a la SHERLOCK so the first two episodes left me sorta confused. We all already know the story, what's the point of telling it again with some changes?
But when they gave me what I thought I wanted (Dracula in 21st century London) it just wasn't that interesting. Also, some of the visual effects were embarrassingly bad, intentionally or not.
