Jekyll and Hyde is a British television drama series from ITV that premiered in 2015. This series is a contemporary adaptation of the classic story of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, written by Robert Louis Stevenson in 1886. Tom Bateman plays the main character, Dr Jekyll, a young London doctor who discovers a potion that brings out his evil alter ego, Mr Hyde. The show was highly anticipated and created a lot of buzz before it was released.

The series is set in 1930s London, where Dr Robert Jekyll, the grandson of the original Jekyll, discovers a dark and dangerous legacy that has been passed down to him. Jekyll inherits a mysterious potion that transforms him into the monstrous Mr Hyde, a being with superhuman strength and a savage appetite for destroy. The potions make him invincible, but also highly dangerous.

Donald Sumpter plays Garson, the head of the secret government agency that is responsible for monitoring the supernatural world. Stephanie Hyam plays Bella, a dancer who befriends Jekyll, and whose life is in serious danger when she becomes embroiled in the sinister dealings of the agency.

The show explores themes of duality, morality, and the struggle between good and evil. It delves into the minds of the characters, detailing their fears, weaknesses, and motivations. The storyline is complex and multi-layered, drawing viewers in with its intricate plot twists and turns. There are many characters with their own agendas, which complicates the narrative and keeps the audience guessing.

One of the strengths of the show is its world-building. The Victorian-era London setting is well-crafted and believable, with intricate sets and costumes that recreate the period perfectly. The supernatural elements are equally well-executed, with a good balance between horror and fantasy. The show also tackles issues of social class, politics and gender relations, and its engaging storylines often add depth to its allegories.

The show also boasts strong performances, especially from Tom Bateman in the dual role of Jekyll and Hyde. He is convincing as the mild-mannered Jekyll, and equally so as the sinister and brutal Hyde. He conveys the internal struggle between the two personas realistically, and his performance establishes him as one of the most promising actors of his generation.

Stephanie Hyam is also excellent as Bella, a character that provides a moral center for the show. She represents Jekyll's link to the civilized world and his humanity, and her performance is nuanced and well-executed. Donald Sumpter's portrayal of Garson is menacing, and his character's motivations are ambiguous, which adds to the intrigue of the show.

One of the few criticisms of the show is that it is sometimes hard to follow, with a convoluted plot and many characters to keep track of. However, this also adds to the intrigue, and the complexity of the show is one of its defining features. The special effects and action scenes are also somewhat hit and miss, but overall the production values are high, and the show is visually impressive.

Overall, Jekyll and Hyde is a thrilling and engaging series that offers an updated take on a classic story. The strong performances, well-crafted world-building, and complex storyline all contribute to its success, and the show is well worth the watch for anyone looking for a gripping and entertaining drama.

Jekyll And Hyde is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (10 episodes). The series first aired on October 25, 2015.
