I am thoroughly enjoying Jekyll and Hyde on ITV here in the UK. Its a rare thing to have classy monster fayre on the telly before the 9pm watershed.
And by God is this classy. Charlie Higson has penned a cracker. Relying not on special make-up, Hyde is a raging Hulk-like brawler who loves to smash stuff.
With elements recalling Phantasm, Van Helsing and The Extraordinary League of Gentlemen, the battle with Tenebrae is slippery and exciting and Hyde's role without is must-see viewing...if I say so myself. Grrrrr!
Anyone else watching it?
Talking of must-see TV, the Bridge III started last night. For me Saga Noren is the most riveting character to appear on the small screen for years. With an explosive beginning, this new Scandi-noir has me and Missus Moonbase hooked already!
Further gothic derring-do can be had in the Frankenstein Chronicles on ITV Encore twould appear. This is a subscription channel so I won't get to see it alas. Starring Boromir himself, Sean 'still sharp' Bean, the 10 part series kicked-off this month.
