Gatiss had very specific ideas about what he wanted to bring to the vampire party. “I wanted to do something different with it. Before Dracula they weren’t these gothic, Byronic, romantic creatures, they were filthy and disgusting. “I wanted to have red hair, because you never have ginger vampires, and terrible teeth, and these really dirty fingernails. And they gave me everything I wanted. So there’s lots of lovely close-ups of my filthy hands and terrible teeth. He’s about 3000 years old, he’s literally rotting from the inside.” 
In fact there was one compromise made. “They asked me if I’d shave my head, and though I’ve done it before, I really wanted the red hair. But if I came back then I’d shave my head. The full Nosferatu!”
