Continuity problems

  • If Magda Westenra was born roughly 250 years ago (c. 1762), then she would be around 50 years younger than Malik. The Count might have forgotten her real age. An earlier date would still tie in with Chandu and Count Dracula fighting over her.[25] However since Elizabeta lied about Count Dracula being Malik's father this date could be correct.
  • Vladimir Dracula must have been born in 1996, towards the end of June[26], if Sally Giles had a normal pregnancy of 40 weeks. This might move the entire storyline forward. The Draculas should have left Transylvania in 2008-9 (later than the original broadcast date of the first series). Series 3 and 4 should have been set in 2013, and series 5 in 2014.

  26. The episode "Father's Day", episode 11 would fall on the real world date of Father's Day 2009 (June 21). Vlad's 13th birthday is in "Blood Relations", episode 8, it's safe to assume a long period of time doesn't pass between the episodes. Alternatively, if Sally was pregnant for the normal 9 months, her gestation would start between September 1st and 3rd and at the end of May or start of June.
