Sherlock creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat are turning to an interpretation of Bram Stoker's Dracula as their next project. Given that Sherlock was quite an interesting contemporarization (is that a word?) of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories, I'm looking forward to seeing what the pair does with Dracula.
A lawyer plays a prominent role in the story--solicitor Jonathan Harker is initially involved in a property transaction for the Count, and things only get murkier from there. Read the text here (courtesy of Project Gutenberg).
