DRACULA Classic BBC Radio Horror

by | Read by Frederick Jaeger, Phyllis Logan, and a Full Cast

Horror • 3 hrs. • Audio Program • © 1890

Stoker’s classic gothic novel is restructured as an efficient, entertaining audio drama, complete with chilling sound effects and eerie music. Phyllis Logan offers up a strong and feisty but still appropriately vulnerable Mina, and Finlay Welsh perfectly captures Professor Van Helsing’s dry and morbid sense of humor. Frederick Jaeger’s Count Dracula, when not in full vampire mode, sounds rather like a stuffy businessman, which is a fresh and insightful alternative to the Bela Lugosi stereotype. While knowledge of the novel helps fill in the gaps between scenes, this careful reimagining works on its own and provides a wonderful opportunity for fans to revisit this much-loved story.
