BBC’s Dracula reboot will be bisexual; Van Helsing gets gender-swapped
One Angry Gamer ^ | November 3rd 2019 | Billy D

The man who ruined Doctor Who, Steven Moffat, and one-half of the duo behind the Sherlock Holmes reboot, Mark Gatiss, have teamed up together for a reboot of another classic story, Dracula. The new show will debut on BBC in 2020. Oh, and Dracula has been made bisexual while Van Helsing has been turned into a woman.

The USA Today Post is reporting that the BBC is proud and out about making Dracula a connoisseur of the alphabet soup, with Mark Gatiss telling press…

"He’s got broad tastes has this Dracula. It’s not just a collection of Sixties women with push-up bras this time. Dracula has never discriminated, in so far as he can tell the difference between the sexes. He goes for his food but also people who interest him.

“This goes right the way back. There’s a moment at the end of a Hammer film with Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing when he goes to bite him and it’s very, very homoerotic for its time.”

According to the The Sun, the brand ruination doesn’t end there.

They note that Van Helsing, famous vampire hunter, will be portrayed by a woman. They slipped in the news about Van Helsing’s gender-swap at the very end of the article, writing…

"A woman will also replace vampire-hunter Professor Van Helsing in the adaptation, due to air next year.”

Steven Moffat’s wife is named Sue Vertue, which is appropriate, because he virtue signals like nobody’s business.

This is like the forced addition of a kid into the script to help boost sales of toys, costumes and video games. Happened with Journey to the Center of the Earth and many others. No plot purpose, just commercialism.

Now shock value of gender stuff-—except it is getting repulsive as well as boring.

This doesn’t surprise me because Mark Gatiss is gay.

Sounds more like a re-make of the Rocky Horror Picture show, swapping Frankenstein to Dracula.

Didn’t Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt perform in a period piece film with this sort of theme? About 30 years ago. I recall heavy make up and colonial costumes.

Once upon a time the BBC did make decent versions of the classics. Their 1977 Dracula was probably the film version that was most faithful to the book.

This is gonna make Hugh Jackman’s take on Van Helsing look positively Oscar-worthy. PASS.

Just stop it!!!

What’s next, Frankenstein is built as a morphodite and impregnates himself? But his kid has serious daddy issues?

There sure is a LOT of pandering to one percent of the population.

They are lucky is is a TV production. It would die at the box office. Get woke, go broke.

Funny enough they’re also working an an adaptation of War of the Worlds that looks pretty faithful to the book too.

They did indeed use to make decent versions of the classics, I also recommend their 1981 mini-series of Day of the Triffids.
