cause in this world of fiction // my jekyll doesn't hide
It's that time again. I'm back with another TV series recommendation, this time brought to you by the letter J.
Jekyll is a BBC miniseries, obviously based on the legend of Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde. It's a six-episode series set in the modern day, written as a sequel to the original book. It stars James Nesbitt as Tom Jackman, and Michelle Ryan as his assistant, Katherine Reimer. It was also written by Steven Moffat who is better known for his work on Doctor Who.
Jekyll is definitely an under appreciated series outside of the UK, though I'm not sure how publicized it was, beyond being shown on BBC America way back when. It's a series worth checking out, not only because of the really intriguing storyline, but the brilliant acting talents of Nesbitt as both Jekyll and Hyde.
Oh, and there's a stereotypical douchebag American agent in it. Because we Brit's seem to love taking the piss out of them. D=
