Great change up
3 May 2020 | by an-mumsdaleSee all my reviews

Throughly enjoyed the change up from the first Penny Dreadful series. It is bringing light on a whole new era and I'm looking forward to where it will take us. Different is good. If it was the same as the original.... what's the point in that? Love it so far
