Tom Jackman and Mr. Sexy Pants

Summary info taken with much love from

Part conspiracy thriller, part comic horror, this extraordinary retelling of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic takes the ultimate tale of inner conflict to new heights. It is 2007 and there's a new Dr Jekyll, with the same old problem - Mr Hyde. But the pair have a deal - a body share - and an impossible life is somehow lived. What Hyde doesn't know is that Jekyll is married. There's a wife and two children he'll do anything to protect from his dark side. With all the resources of modern technology, and the best surveillance hardware, Jekyll is determined to keep his alter ego in check by doing a deal with his own devil. What neither of them know is a secret organisation, with limitless wealth and power, is monitoring their every move, and a plan over a century in the making is coming to fruition. The return of Dr Jekyll is no accident...

The legend behing the series - Mr. Steven Moffat (writer)

"Being perfectly honest, have you tried reading Dracula or Frankenstein? You'd be found dead of boredom. Fiction for a dustier age - stories that never had to compete with The X-Factor. Actually, Jekyll and Hyde is really good, but it's built around one big, amazing twist that I'm going to blow for you right now - Jekyll and Hyde are the same person... What survives of that original story is a big, grand, mad idea - the man who turns into his own demon. And that's too big and grand and mad to be locked into one plot. Everyone should have a turn. And, yes, purists are going to say that's wrong and wicked, and that the achievement of Robert Louis Stevenson is worthy of greater respect. But what bigger achievement is there than creating a story that everyone wants to tell?"

Steven Moffat, interviewed for The Guardian, on how he overcame the 'respect' problem when adapting The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
