An epic new one-minute trailer for ITV’s Jekyll and Hyde is now playing in cinemas.
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.
Jekyll and Hyde is created by The Fast Show writer Charlie Higson and inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
Watch the trailer…
Richard E Grant (Downton Abbey) plays Sir Roger Bulstrode, who heads the secret government department M10 known as ‘The Invisible Men’, and Natalie Gumede (Doctor Who) plays Bella, who’ll be involved in a love triangle with Robert.
The cast also includes Stephanie Hyam (Murdered By My Boyfriend), Donald Sumpter (Game Of Thrones), Amit Shah (The Smoke), Phil McKee (Ripper Street), Christian McKay (Rush), Ruby Bentall (The Paradise), Enzo Cilenti (Game of Thrones), Lolita Chakrabarti (Death in Paradise), Michael Karim (Inspector Lewis) and Ace Bhatti (Silk).
The official synopsis reads: “At the heart of the drama is Robert Jekyll’s quest to discover his real identity, his true family history and the nature of his ‘curse’. Jekyll transforms into Hyde in moments of extreme anger, stress and when his or the lives of others are threatened.”
Jekyll and Hyde begins on ITV this autumn.
