Trivia

Esther is offered a fee of "one crown per day" to fix a dress for Frederick Dipple's automaton. This amounts to 5 shillings or the modern equivalent of 243 British pounds (adjusted for 2017 inflation), or 1,215 British pounds for five days' work. Earlier, a bribe for some information is mentioned as costing 10 guineas. This is the equivalent of 210 shillings historically, or a whopping 10,206 British pounds (adjusted for 2017 inflation).

Interesting & unique take
31 December 2015 | by viper-57726See all my reviews

Felt this was let down by the marketing and fairly bland trailers. I only watched since Sean Bean was in it, thank goodness I did! Whilst its pretty slow initially, after 2 episodes when it all starts coming together the show stands out as a very creative one, with what I certainly felt was a completely original story based around the Frankenstein lore. In this respect it was a great surprise, and like others have mentioned, with so many shows coming out now based on established materials this was very refreshing.

Hopefully we see more, since whilst I do appreciate shows that keep it short and direct, instead of like others dragging on longer than they should (you know who you are!), this is one story that certainly has more to tell.

Not to miss.
