Rather than watching movies, over the last few days I watched the BBC series Jekyll. Steven Moffat is just a genius. I’m not sure how much untapped potential is left for a second series (although, after four years I guess it’s probably not gonna happen) but I would watch the fuck out of it anyway. I never came around to seeing James Nesbitt as sexy though, either as Jekyll or Hyde. Actually he was kind of good-looking in the flashbacks to meeting Claire and their early marriage. When he was wearing the glasses. I’m a sucker for guys with glasses. But I kind of laughed every time someone referenced how “sexy” he supposedly was. Even the lesbians were attracted to him! What was up with that?
And I was proud of Moffat for writing a really strong, clever, not-taking-any-shit female character in Claire! I feel like he doesn’t really do much of that.
Hello! And welcome to FuckYeahJekyll. We are here to give you all things related to the wonderful BBC miniseries, Jekyll!
/London, 2007. Tom Jackman is the only living descendent of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. He has made a deal with his dark side: a body share. What Mr. Hyde doesn't know is that Tom has a family. There is a wife and two children that he'll do anything to protect from his dark side. With all the resources of modern technology, and the best surveillance hardware, he's determined to keep his dark side in line. He's done a deal with his own devil. What neither of them knows is that an ancient organisation, with limitless wealth and power, is monitoring their every move, and a plan over a century in the making is coming to fruition./
