Trivia

Approximately 21 mins into this episode, as Dr Frankenstein peels back the creature's exoskeleton, hieroglyphic tattoos are revealed that will later be described by Dr. Lyle as coming from the Egyptian Book ofThe Dead. The hieroglyph on the right side of the creature appears to be a stylized "42", which is the answer to "Life, the Universe, and Everything" according to Douglas Adams "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy'.

Goofs

00:8:21.00: Close-up on Ethan Chandler's cheap battery-powered pocket watch, whose brand name "Jean Jacot" was first registered in 2015 and belongs to a German company offering advertising gifts. The watch's quartz movement is obvious even to the layman on account of its jumping seconds hand. This watch could not have existed in 1891. See more »

A Brilliant Start
4 September 2017 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

It has got me hooked on instantly. The Characters are very interesting and you start enjoying their acts immediately. Eva Green is mesmerizing, Her Eyes are beautiful. Josh Harnett plays the showman with effortless ease. Timothy Dalton's gaze is supreme. Harry Treadaway as Dr.Frankenstien makes you feel elated and wanting for more. A Fantastic feel of the 18th Century takes over and leaves you spellbound by this show
