After the death of their parents, the Gelhorn twins, the sensual and cunning Frieda and the timid, conservative Maria, go to live in the village of Karnstein with their puritanical uncle Gustav Weil. Gustav is head of the witch-hunting Brotherhood and opposes the current Count Karnstein. The Count, bored of petty Satanic rituals, offers his soul to the Devil in return for greater pleasures. The blood of a woman he has just killed drops down into the crypt of his ancestor Mircalla and she appears to him as a wraith, putting the bite of vampirism on him as they make love. Karnstein then seduces and makes a vampire of Frieda. 

DOCTOR WHO: MAKING THE FACE FIT


We see that BBC Dr Who producer / writer Steven Moffat and his his predecessor Russell T Davies... in their quest to make sure that all things 'Who' continuity wise and within the vast story context of the tv series tie up nicely... have been busy coming up with a credible answer as to how the Twelfth Doctor's face has already popped up twice in the Who universe... That's quite a feat, some mental gymnastics. Just goes to prove, if you really want to, you can make anything fit. And yet, they still can't justify the existence of Peter Cushing as a canon Dr / Doctor.. Who? http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2013-09-30/doctor-who-steven-moffat-has-an-explanation-for-peter-capaldis-earlier-appearances
