Marc Warren can do creepy really well, Sophie Miles is a fine actress and David Suchet is excellent but not in this I'm afraid. The BBC did an excellent dramatisation in 1977 with Louis Jordan as the Count, but here they failed and by a long way. If you are not as precious about the original novel as I am then there may be much to enjoy here(the BBC do Victorian like no one else) but don't expect much Stoker. I give it 40% bcause I like the above named actors so much.
