An erotically charged, profoundly unsettling new saga, PENNY DREADFUL completely reinvents literature’s most iconic and terrifying characters. Dorian Gray, Victor Frankenstein and timeless figures from Dracula join a core of original characters in a dark and brutal quest to save a soul – even as they grapple with their own monstrous temptations.

Just one word of warning for some; this is a dark drama. There are some scenes, aspects of the plot, that are truly sinister and disturbing. There is a fair amount of hedonism, but also gore. Whilst the gore is not necessarily overly graphic, the themes behind it hit close to the bone, and it may not always be to everyone's taste.
Penny Dreadful takes several iconic Victorian-era horror creations, Frankenstein, Dorian Grey and several characters from Dracula among others, and throws them into a single, entertaining but very adult plot. The production quality is absolutely top class for a TV production, putting most feature films to shame and the cast matches that quality with Timothy Dalton, Eva Green, Rory Kinnear and Josh Hartnett all excellent. Supporting characters are also top notch with the likes of Alun Armstrong and David Warner appearing in small roles. The freedom of modern TV production means that this is an often gory and sexually explicit show, so the 18 rating is very appropriate.
Blu-ray picture quality is excellent. The discs feature a number of interesting behind the scenes featurettes.
