Blood, murder and intrigue reign this week on Penny Dreadful

 “Which is the real man: the beast, or the angel? – Dr. Jekyll

Penny Dreadful continues to deliver twists at every turn this week with more blood, more mystery, and another brilliant reveal.

The bond between Vanessa (Eva Green) and Dr. Seward (Patti LuPone) grows, and while being separated by oceans, evil and death pursue Ethan (Josh Hartnett) and Vanessa, whether they wish it to or not.


The extraordinary Rory Kinnear (The Creature/John Clare) is back in London to unearth the remnants of his past and to find the family he has so desperately yearned for. Meanwhile, the two Drs. Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway) and Jekyll (Shazad Latif) continue their studies into duality, while bold Hecate (Sarah Greene) and Lily (Billie Piper) ruthlessly pursue their own agendas.

From dark and crowded 1890s London, to the earthen tones and vastness of the American West, people’s pasts – like puzzle pieces lost in time – are drawn closer and closer together.

“Good and Evil Braided Be” is written by John Logan and directed by Damon Thomas. It airs on the Showtime channel on Foxtel Wednesday 8.30pm. Check out the teaser here.
