After listening to three productions of Dracula this week it is surprising how different they are compared with each other. All were enjoyable and each had their faults/ positives; though if you wish to listen to a more faithful telling of Dracula I would suggest the Mark Gatiss version (Big Finish Productions).
Mark Gatiss as Dracula, Big Finish productions 2016 (3hrs 15mins)
Listened to this twice as first time wasn’t entirely convinced by it, but subsequently concluded it has a much better ‘everything’ than the other BBC adaptations - and Mark Gatiss as Dracula is superb.
My only criticism is the sound design (incidental music + soundscape) didn’t always seem to naturally blend with the vocal recordings. Ideally it should invoke the right atmosphere and flow with the rest of the production so barely be of notice. And I do stress this criticism is only occasionally, not with all music/ sound effects.
Dracula 3hrs 15mins
Interviews with the cast 30mins
Overall 4hrs 5mins
The other productions were I listened to were:
Frederick Jaeger as Dracula, BBC Radio 1994 (3hrs 19mins)
David Suchet as Dracula, BBC Radio 2006 (1hr 54mins)
