Mystery & Imagination: Dracula

‘Mystery and Imagination’ was an ITV series that run from 1966 to 1970. Frustratingly, only eight of the twenty four episodes still exist, and the lost programmes include several M.R James adaptations.

Accentuating the positive, however, we still have the one where Denholm Elliott played Dracula. I expect you're rubbing your eyes now, but it's true. It’s an interesting casting decision, but Denholm turns in his usual reliable, professional, slightly sleazy performance, largely unhampered by a mouthful of teeth.
