Harker's plight is made more acute by the attentions of the Brides of Dracula, a voracious trio, who appear to have less than honourable intentions. With the improbable assistance of Dracula's servant, Igoretta, Harker escapes and returns to England, where, shortly afterwards, his fiancé finds herself in the company of a mysterious foreign gentleman.
