The battle of wits continues between Tom Jackman and Mr. Hyde. On the road for a week now, Jackman has taken to chaining himself up at night in order to keep Hyde from some of his excesses. The mysterious group following him continues in its attempt to kidnap him. Tom visits his old friend Paul Syme and demands answers only to learn that his employer, the Institute, existed for only one purpose: to study him. To his great surprise, his wife Claire is also there and she learns his secret and meets Mr. Hyde. When Tom awakens the next day, he again has no recollection of what Mr. Hyde has done. Written by
The pilot episode somewhat hooked me. Interesting idea, good acting, decent writing. The second episode stepped all three up a notch and the story got a little more wind behind its sails. And now this, BAM, in your face.
Nesbitt is a gifted actor, no doubt about it. Every scene as Hyde is a killer (sometimes literally) and particularly in the basement standoff of this episode he outshines himself. Even as Jackman he's believable and that's no mean feat, jumping between two extremes. Kudos to the other characters too as I was hard pressed to find a fault here.
This show has gone from a pleasant distraction to a can't-wait-to-see series. And hence I've gone from somewhat hooked to totally on the line with this.
