Review: Jekyll: Episode 1

Jekyll / Episode 1
"A modern day take on the classic tale of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde."
Click to read review - may contain spoilers

Whenever attempting to modernise a classic you always run the risk of destroying it. Somethings just don't translate to the modern day. But Jekyll is breaking the rules and doing it without a problem.

We're introduced to Tom as he straps himself in preparing to change into Hyde. The show delivers on its promise and everything is played out perfectly. Nothing is unbelievable, the acting and casting is brilliant. Extra points to James Nesbitt who plays both Jekyll & Hyde amazingly. As they are both two entirely different characters.

A great start to what I can tell is going to be something we won't soon forget.
