ITV have given us an extended look at their upcoming television series Jekyll and Hyde, based on the infamous character that features in Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel. The clip gives a short and sweet look at Tom Bateman’s character Jekyll as he rescues a young woman from a gang of thugs.
He begins the clip reluctant to help out, but when Hyde kicks in he goes on the full-blown attack and has no problem head-butting someone to the ground. Brilliant.
Jekyll & Hyde” will focus on the young, attractive and troubled hero, Robert Jekyll, the grandson of the original doctor. Newly-qualified, Robert is on a quest to discover his real identity, his true family history and the nature of his ‘curse’ which is being controlled with medication by Dr Vishal Najaran.
The show will be comprised of 10 episodes, directed by Colin Teague (Torchwood, Doctor Who, Being Human) and has an all-star cast that features Richard E. Grant, Natalie, Donald Sumpter, Phil McKee, Christian McKay and more.
