As countless viewers prepare to tune into BBC One on New Year’s Day to watch Dracula, PinkNews just wanted to run a short public service announcement that the count is not bisexual.
He is, according to the series’ co-writer Steven Moffat, “bi-homicidal”. ‘Dracula has always fed off men and women,’ says Steve Moffat.
With gay Sherlock co-writer Mark Gatiss also at the helm, the adaptation of the Bram Stoker 1897 classic has been immersed in fan speculation about the head vampire himself’s sexuality. Chiefly, that he might be bisexual.
Moffat told The Times, however, that it is not quite accurate to describe Bang’s Dracula as bisexual. “He’s bi-homicidal, it’s not the same thing,” said Moffat. “He’s killing them, not dating them.”
