Young Dracula is a 2006 – 2011 British television series airing on CBBC, loosely based on Young Dracula AND Young Monsters, a children’s book by Michael Lawrence.

Directed by Joss Agnew, the first series was broadcast in 2006.

The first two series follow the Dracula family, a family of vampires: Vladimir (Vlad), his father Count Dracula, and older sister Ingrid. Having lived in Transylvania, they move to Stokely, a small town in Wales after various incidents involving angry peasant mobs.

The third series sees Vlad and the Count on the run from slayers and vampires alike, while the Count is determined that Vlad should fulfil his destiny to become “the Chosen One”…

It was filmed in various locations around Wales, including Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Glantaf, Caerphilly Castle, Tretower Court and parts of Llantrisant.
