Universal Pictures (UK) are releasing hit show Dracula: The Complete First Season on DVD and Blu-ray on 10th February.
Starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers in the title role, Dracula is a ten-part series that re-invents one of the most iconic characters in the world. Alongside Meyers, the show stars Katie Mcgrath (Merlin), Jessica De Gouw (Arrow), Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Mr Selfridge), Thomas Kretschmann (The River) and Victoria Smurfit (Cold Feet).
The synopsis for the show is:
It is 1881, and somewhere in Romania a shadowy figure pours fresh blood on to an ancient sarcophagus, awakening a dormant corpse. Fifteen years later, we are introduced to the infamous impaler as he arrives in London posing as charismatic American entrepreneur ‘Alexander Grayson’.
Dracula seduces the social elite with talk of bringing modern science to Victorian society. Performing an elaborate stunt to revolutionise the electricity industry, Grayson’s breakthrough alarms some of his well-heeled guests, who have business interests of their own at stake. In dazzling his new and willing prey, Grayson hopes to disguise his true intent – to wreak revenge and havoc upon the people who reuined his life centuries earlier. There’s only one obstacle that threatens to thwart his plan: Dracula begins to fall hopelessly in love with a woman who seems to be a reincarnation of his dead wife.
Bonus features on the release include featurettes, deleted scenes and the US cut of the third episode of the season. Check out the box art below:
