DRACULA SEASON 1 PLOT
CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS
Episode 1, titled ‘The Rules of the Beast,’ had the classic Dracula horror tale from the Irish writer. The show is set in Hungary in 1897, with the main characters being an English Lawyer Jonathan Harker (John Heffernan) and the deadly Transylvanian aristocrat Dracula (Claes Bang).
Then there is the vampire-hunting nun Sister Agatha Van Helsing played by Dolly Wells.
The period of the show is a bit confusing as Dracula seems to travel through time seamlessly.
