A new take on 'Dracula' launched on BBC last night and it's already getting a big reception.
Claes Bang stars as the title character while Dolly Wells plays Sister Agatha, a descendant of Dracula's nemesis, Van Helsing.
The show will consist of three episodes which air over three consecutive nights.
The latest adaptation of Bram Stoker's classic is developed by Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, who also collaborated on 'Doctor Who' and 'Sherlock'.
You can check out the trailer here.
Below are spoiler-free fan responses to whet your appetite.

Watching #Dracula I am aware that post #Buffy we are more interested in the slayer than the vampire

Give Agatha Van Helsing her own show....she's magnificent but she's more mesmerising than the Count!! pic.twitter.com/LI02YKsNz6

Sister Agatha was JUST what I needed in #Dracula 🖤🖤🖤 “Like many women my age I am trapped in a loveless marriage, maintaining appearances for the sake of a roof over my head” BEST NUN EVER pic.twitter.com/0Vt7FEs6jZ

Well, that was GREAT!!! @Markgatiss and Steven Moffat might have created the best adaptation of #Dracula in a very long time. It captured all that classic gothic goodness but with some great modern twists and surprises...plus some nasty gruey body horror to boot. LOVED it. pic.twitter.com/g9BPnnWd69

Whoa! #Dracula on BBC is great! So entertaining, visually awesome. A real gripping re-imagining, with some truly terrifying effects and some very Christopher Lee throwback moments! Nicely done! Can’t wait to see where this goes. Also Agatha is hilarious. 👏 pic.twitter.com/KrC6GRaSet
