Dracula existed in a state of quantum possibility. (PROSE: A Bloody (And Public) Domaine) These possibilities included Dracula being a fictional character created by Bram Stoker, inspired by the historical prince of the same name; (AUDIO: Son of the Dragon, PROSE: A Bloody (And Public) Domaine, et al) a resurrected version of the historical prince; (PROSE: A Bloody (And Public) Domaine) a completely real individual with no direct connection to the prince; (PROSE: A Bloody (And Public) Domaine, The Dreadful Flap) and an Incremental being who was once fictional, but became real.

Biography[edit | edit source]
In 1893, (PROSE: The Found World) Dracula journeyed from Transylvania to England on the Demeter. (PROSE: A Bloody (And Public) Domaine) He washed up on the shores of Whitby in the form of a large hound. Dracula then climbed the 199 steps to Whitby Abbey. (PROSE: The Dreadful Flap, Brenda's B&B) The Tenth Doctor once claimed to have encountered Dracula on the night he arrived in Whitby. (COMIC: The Black Sea) With his three brides, Dracula converted Renfield into a vampire. Sometime before the end of 1893, Dracula was slain by Quincey Morris. (PROSE: The Found World) There were many fictional and metafictional versions of Dracula's journey to England and subsequent death. (PROSE: A Bloody (And Public) Domaine)
As Kristoff Alucard[edit | edit source]
He was recruited by the Ministry for Alien Incursions and Ontological Wonders.
By 2008, Alucard was in charge of the Darlington branch of MIAOW. Under his command, MIAOW ruthlessly collected everything which fell through the Dreadful Flap; imprisoning extraterrestrials and cannibalised alien technology. Iris Wildthyme and Panda visited MIAOW and witnessed Alucard ordering the imprisonment of Barbra. Alucard followed Iris to 1962, where Noël Coward killed him with the Blithe Pinking Shears. Iris put Dracula's ashes in the crypt of St Mary's Church. (PROSE: The Dreadful Flap)
As the Enemy[edit | edit source]
In one version of history chronicled by Auteur, Lolita influenced Dracula before his journey to England and primed him to become the Enemy. As described in The Dragon Scriptures, she showed him the Very Fabric of the Spiral Politic and the Yssgaroth trapped outside it. Dracula's initial time in England went similarly to other timelines, but following what should have been his death he was resurrected by Lolita. The Count then brutally murdered Jonathan Harker as revenge.
Dracula made his lair beneath Bedfordshire in the temporal echo of a mine to the Earth's core built by invaders in the future. Two weeks later, on 19 November, Dracula contacted Mina Harker and threatened to kill John Seward and Arthur Holmwood if she didn't meet with him. After Mina arrived and Dracula had her restrained by cultists, the mine decayed to the point that the Caldera began leaking through. Mina fatally stabbed Dracula, but he drank the raw blood of time and rewrote history with himself at the centre.
Dracula took over the British Empire and built a society wherein vampirism was fashionable. He was a figurehead of Earth history into the 20th and 21st centuries, leading vampires to space. This timeline was obscured to outside observers by Enemy timeships starting at the date of the Ghost Point. (PROSE: A Bloody (And Public) Domaine)
Depictions of the fictional Dracula[edit | edit source]
Peter Cushing appeared in some Dracula films before taking on the part of Dr. Who. (PROSE: Lady Penelope Investigates the stars of the Sensational new film Dr. Who and the Daleks!)
Melanicus created an illusion of Dracula to frighten the Fifth Doctor, which the latter dismissed as "a strictly mythical figure drawn largely from a work of Victorian fiction." (COMIC: The Tides of Time)
The Tenth Doctor and Martha Jones encountered Dracula on a world of fiction created by the books Martha had read throughout her life. The Doctor punched Dracula and exclaimed that he had a very hard face. (PROSE: The Mystery of the Haunted Cottage)
Land of Fiction[edit | edit source]
Dracula was stationed at Camelot, after Sherlock Holmes died. He was eventually converted into a Cyberman, but it failed as he already was dead. He led the attack on the Cyber Planner, in order to make them believe that Cybermen do not exist. (AUDIO: Legend of the Cybermen)
Minor references[edit | edit source]
Clyde Langer told the following joke about the character: "How did Count Dracula escape from Transylvania? He used a blood vessel." to weaken the Pied Piper by causing laughter. (TV: The Day of the Clown)
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Dracula has been played by David de Keyser, Marc Warren and Jonathan Rigby in various adaptations, while Peter Cushing, who played a version of the Doctor in the two theatrical 1960s Doctor Who movies, was most famous for playing Dracula's archnemesis in the Hammer Dracula series, Van Helsing. This is referenced in several parodical work by Tim Quinn and Dicky Howett, such as Doctor Who 3 - The Third Motion Picture, where the Scriptwriter ends up being slain in the manner typical of the theatrical Dracula.
