This BBC documentary series on four Victorian Gothic novels examines the creation and popularity of the classic literary horror novels of the Victorian Era. The genre of the horror story gained immense popularity during the late nineteenth century and has retained its popularity for over a century. The classic gothic horror novels reveal the ambiguities of the Victorian Era, an era that experienced the changes of the Industrial Revolution and social repression at the same time. Tape 1 includes Volumes 1 and 2 : Frankenstein and Dracula. Professor Christopher Frayling explores the life of Mary Shelley and the influences on her famous novel "Frankenstein," including the loss of her child. The special also delves into the metamorphosis of Dr. Frankenstein's creature due to Hollywood's take on the classic story. Next, Professor Frayling explores the origins of Bram Stoker's "Dracula" and travels in the footsteps of the novel's hero, Jonathan Harker, across Europe to Castle Dracula. Frayling also critiques the interpretations of Stoker's tale.
