Trivia

When Vanessa goes into trance, she talks about a "green place" where "the Porters are dying". This is a reference to the characters of Jane and his father in "Tarzan of the Apes", by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The novel takes place approximately at the same time as the series, and matches its the Victorian setting. See more »

Fantastic Reliving of Classic Characters
12 September 2017 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed the conversations of Dr.Victor Frankenstein and Vanessa Ives. Especially the lines "Man does not live only in the empirical. We must seek the ephemeral, or why live?". The dialogue is beautiful and the scenes are beautifully shot. I did not particularly like Reeve Carney as Dorian Gray. But I enjoyed the introduction of Billie Piper as Brona Croft. This series is turning out to be brilliant. I am addicted
