* VampireVarietyPack: The different bloodlines.

to:

* VampireVarietyPack: The different bloodlines.bloodlines each features a different subset of vampire characteristics; only some bloodlines are able to transform into other shapes, for instance. Dracula's bloodline is said to be the only one where the metamorphosis involves dying and reviving (as opposed to transforming directly from a living person to an animate vampire), and the only one where a vampire has to rest in a box of his native earth; other bloodlines tend to regard this as a bit weird.

* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Vampires come from a number of various "Bloodlines", but are considered biological entities with "just a touch" of magic (they don't cast reflections, for example). Some may be able to transform, while others have corpse-like features, and others suffer from blood frenzy. Religious symbols and even garlic only affect those vampires who believe they can. Sunlight only hurts younger undead, and silver only serves to counter their regeneration abilities; any sufficient organ damage (like, say, a stake though the heart) can kill them for good. Notably, Dracula specifically isn't vulnerable to as many things as he is in Bram Stoker's version; the turning point of history comes when he shrugs off an attack that, in Stoker's novel, seriously inconvenienced him.

** Commander [[Literature/JamesBond Hamish]] [[Film/JamesBond Bond]] of British Intelligence. If the family name wasn't enough to give it away, 'Hamish' is the Anglicanised version of the Scottish Gaelic equivalent for 'James'.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: The biggest crime lords in London all decide to put aside their rivalries and offer their aid to the Diogenes Club to help find Jack the Ripper (in a scene probably lifted from Fritz Lang's ''M''). Partially it's business (heightened police alertness and all) but a few of them hint that they're actually sickened by Jack's methods.

* AlternateHistory: The heroes of the original novel fail, Mina joins the undead and Dracula is free to spread his vampirism. However this isn't as bad as you think.

* GreaterScopeVillain: Dracula, or at least his influence, is always present, but he's almost never the actual antagonist directly opposing the heroes.
