Patchy start, great middle, weak resolution, almost saved by cast.

A kind of glossy rehash of all the Dracula's Castle tropes gave way to a genuinely impressive recasting of Van Helsing as a Dutch Nun (actor Dolly Wells). Sadly, after the Count arrived in Britain, things deteriorated as only a Gatiss/Moffat production can, with a surfeit of pompously, over-dramatic, pot-boiling ideas all crammed in as a substitute for a genuine resolution. I felt optimistic after the first two episodes, apart from the last minute of episode two which signalled a change into something closer to Sherlock or Dr Who.

Nail meet head.

Enjoyed it, but your review is spot on.

If Feds call you and say something bad on me, it may prove what I said are truth, they are afraid of it.
