Storyline

It's 1930s London and Robert Jekyll is a naive, sensitive young man finding his place in the world and moving away from the protection of his loving foster parents. As he begins to feel himself coming under the power of a darkness he cannot control, he realizes that all this time his parents were protecting him from his true self. Jekyll has inherited the curse of his grandfather, and when angered or in danger he undertakes a graphic and twisted transformation to become Hyde, a shadowy, brooding figure of incredible strength and agility; confident and fearless. As he tries to discover his past and search for a cure, Robert Jekyll is drawn deep into Hyde's world of monstrous creatures and freaks of nature.

Sunday evenings have been waiting for Jekyll and Hyde.
26 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is going to be a very intriguing and watchable series. After the first part I was left suitably impressed. They've managed to make a dark, intriguing, rather exciting series.

I'm not sure after drawing over 500 complaints after its first episode that it will remain in the 6.30 Sunday teatime slot for long, but with over 3.15 million viewers who knows? I'll certainly be tuning in to watch.

Rather good special effects, excellent cinematography, it's a very slickly produced show. The monsters, transformation scenes were really well done.

I like the premise of the story, Robert Jekyll is given a back story, he has a love interest, he has a powerful adversary in Sir Roger Bulstrode.

Tom Bateman was excellent in the lead role, very strong performance, Richard E.Grant it goes without saying is a fantastic actor, good at playing the bad guy, he's not long played Doctor Simeon, an effective adversary for the Doctor.

I am going to enjoy this, old school viewing 8/10
