ITV has released the first full clip from new fantasy drama Jekyll and Hyde.
Starring Da Vinci’s Demons actor Tom Bateman as “young, attractive, troubled hero” Robert Jekyll, the grandson of the original doctor, the ten-part drama will feature “spooky creatures, ghouls, zombies, werewolves and vampires” in 1930s London.
Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell star Enzo Cilenti told CultBox recently that the show will be “very chic, very funny” and has “loads of action”.
