I wish more television was like this. Jekyll is a six episode BBC mini-series that tells the story it wants to tell without a wasted episode, or arguably even a wasted scene. Writer Steven Moffat (becoming well known for the standout episode of Doctor Who every year) gives the Jekyll and Hyde story an update, leaving out potions in favour of Jekyll and Hyde using high-tech tracking devices on each other, themes of genetic tampering, greed, inheritance and corporate abuse, making it far more than just the story of a man and his darker side. Moffat has a tendency to telegraph what's about to happen in the next few seconds with a little too much set up, but the overall plot keeps the viewer guessing.

James Nesbitt is excellent as both Jekyll and Hyde, and the supporting cast are uniformly good as well. As for the production the score is good and the budget apparently a decent one, though there is a frustrating tendency to build up to action sequences that are over in a second. But the action isn't ultimately the point, here. And in every other way, Jekyll is television as its best: engaging, full of ideas and great lines, well acted and produced.

This TV series has more twists and turns then a mole hole. Just when you think you've got it figured out, it makes a left turn you didn't expect. Intelligent TV, who'd have thought?!

A new twist on the 'Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde' premise, written by Stephen Moffat.You just maybe have heard of him. Does series five of Doctor Who, wrote 'Blink' and 'Couplings'?
He does a great job here, writing a compelling conspiracy theory/thriller/action romance, with a bit of comedy every now and then. The twist is, unlike most adaptations which assume that the source material never happened, this one DOES. Doctor Jackman IS aware of the similarity between his case and the book by Robert L. Stevenson, but at first dismisses it as coincidence. As the series goes on though, he finds himself drawn more and more into the truth of his condition.

James Nesbitt really shines as both Jackman and Hyde. As Hyde, he can make you laugh at the darkest of lines such as comparing a kill to being 'Like sex. Only there's a winner'.
His grin could give the Cheshire Cat's the creeps, and he can be genuinely terrifying at times. I dare a viewer to see the zoo episode without being disturbed.
But Nesbitt's harder job is making Tom Jackman interesting and likeable. It's one thing to prance around growling and chewing the scenery, it's another to make us actually CARE for the 'goody two shoes' of the pair. Instead of Jackman being a placeholder for Hyde, we see a man who is gradually losing his grip on not only his sanity, but his very existence. When another character tells him that Hyde will kill him in the end, Jackman's 'Then I won't die!' doesn't come across as cheesy or overblown the way a lesser actor would, but tender and heartbreaking.

Good supporting cast on this one too, as well as being easy on the eye. The three best are Peter Symes, Katherine Reimer, and Claire Jackman (played by Denis Lawson, Michelle Ryan, and Gina Bellman).

This show is a great, sci fi thriller that needs no more than 6 episodes to fulfil a wonderful story. The inner conflict that resides in James nesbits character is what keeps me watching this over and over. Very well done
