Scenes in the day following Maria's seduction / attack include her being visited by her guardians (in daylight) and Paul studying in his room (at sunset). Between these is a scene in the sewer, in which Dracula's empty coffin is seen and a figure (presumably Dracula) passes the street-level grating, blocking out the light. This strongly implies that Dracula is returning to his coffin during daylight hours. Whilst this would certainly be acceptable behavior for Bram Stoker's original character (who was merely inconvenienced by sunlight), it is a serious continuity error in the Hammer series, which established (in "Dracula" - 1958) that any exposure to sunlight will decompose a vampire to dust.
