Back to the source
on 22 September 2015
The amazing thing about this story is that it has been through so many iterations, and is now returning to the source.
When I was a kid, Frankenstein was the big, lumbering Boris Karloff monster: blots through his neck, lightning, Egor, "it's alive!" and all that. But you watch things like Penny Dreadful and you realise that popular culture is restoring Shelley's original vision of the tortured creator and his eloquent, furious creation. Just shows that you can't keep a good story down.
