Everyone’s new favourite horror show Penny Dreadful
introduces viewers to some of literature’s most famously terrifying personalities, including Dr. Frankenstein and his legendary ‘monster’; Dorian Gray as well as iconic characters from the novel Dracula, who all come together in the dark corners of Victorian London. The series weaves together the classic horror origin stories of each character as they grapple with their monstrous alienation.
Timothy Dalton stars as Sir Malcolm Murray, an explorer who has lost his daughter to the city’s creatures, and will do whatever is needed to get her back and to right past wrongs. His accomplice, the seductive clairvoyant Vanessa Ives, played by Eva Green, recruits charming American Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) to help locate Sir Malcolm’s daughter and slay some monsters along the way. Penny Dreadful also stars Billie Piper, Rory Kinnear, Harry Treadaway, Reeve Carney, and Helen McCrory.
