|Part conspiracy thriller, part comic horror, Steven Moffat's extraordinary retelling of this Robert Louis Stevenson classic takes the ultimate tale of inner conflict to unforgettable new heights.|
It is 2007 and there's a new Dr. Jekyll with an old problem - Mr. Hyde. But the pair have a deal - a body share - and an impossible life is somehow lived. With all the resources of modern technology, and the best surveillance hardware, Jekyll is determined to keep his dangerous alter ego in check by doing a deal with his own devil. What neither of them know is that an ancient organization with limitless wealth and power is monitoring their every move, and a plan over a century in the making is coming to fruition. The return of Dr Jekyll is no accident...
"Sexy, violent, and loads of fun, Jekyll brings the old creaky classic novel into the modern age... Brett Cullum, DVD Verdict
"...intrigue worthy of "The X-Files"...Moffat has maintained the underlying integrity while establishing his own surrounding mythology... Brian Lowry, Variety
"...an endlessly engaging, perfectly compact thriller, and its presentation here is equally excellent... David Cornelius, DVD Talk
"...goofy and cheesy in the most deliciously pulpy way, this is TV of a caliber that we rarely get to enjoy on American television... MaryAnn Johanson, The Flick Filosopher
Editor's NoteRobert Louis Stevenson's DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE is interpreted in a unique way in this 2007 production. Dr. Jekyll is plagued by the familiar problem of his destructive alter-ego, Mr. Hyde. So Jekyll takes advantage of some modern technology in an attempt to thwart the beast, using surveillance cameras to monitor his activities. But a further twist in the tale comes when it emerges that it's not just Jekyll who is doing the monitoring....
