"What have you done?"

Dad's Back is the fifth episode of Series Two of Young Dracula. It is the only one to feature Renfield's father, Renfield Sr. and the the name of the Count's father, Count Dracos, is revealed.

It shares similarities to Frankinstein by Mary Shelley, which is often connected with the world of vampires.


Whilst learning about Alchemy (used here to describe the science of bringing things back to life), Vlad discovers a diary belonging to Renfield's father. It contains an introduction to a potion to turn a vampire human, but the vital instructions are missing.

Vlad brings Renfield Senior back to life, but things do not go according to plan. After having Renfield ejected from the castle, Renfield Senior proceeds with his plan to turn the Count human behind Vlad's back. When Vlad goes as far as to trick Robin into involuntarily donating all of his blood for the potion, it's up to Ingrid, Chloe and Renfield to stop Renfield Senior in his tracks.
