Starring Colin Baker as Van Helsing.
In writing Dracula, Bram Stoker created a universe full of rich characters, dark and foreboding locations, and a tangled web of loyalties, relationships and motivations. Despite the story being fictional -at least one hopes that’s the case - many elements within the story were reflections and analogies of the Stoker family and their history.
A little over 120 years after the book’s original release, Bram’s great-grandnephew Dacre Stoker has teamed up with author Chris McAuley to create a series of short stories set within the StokerVerse, each narrated from the point of view of one of the characters we all know - or think we know - so well.
In this episode, we learn exactly what drove Abraham Van Helsing to become a hunter of the undead from the man himself - the true origin story of the man who became scourge of the dreaded Nosferatu.
If you’re a fan of vampires - particularly those of a more gothic nature - then these brand-new adventures will surely appeal to you. With Dacre Stoker’s major contribution, these stories are the most significant addition to the official Dracula canon since Francis Ford Coppola’s 1992 film Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
