Quote " I just hope it isn't going to turn into 'Jekyll fights vampires, Jekyll fights werewolves, Jekyll fights Noel Coward', endless series of monster of the week nonsense. "

Are you psychic? Yes the series is cheesy ....but it is cheese of the highest order or at least a good brie. The first couple of episodes seemed to be a bit unsure as the actors seemed to be unsure of the tone however as the series has progressed it has become more sure-footed. And yes, it is a bit of Monster of The week however this is balanced out by a good plot arc; good as in "Boys Own" adventure which girls can also enjoy in a more ironic manner. Scene of the series has got to be Stephanie Hyam as Lily Clarke explaining why her allergy of oysters is similar to biophysical transformation. What Ho! I was all of a quiver and lunged for a restorative Malt. 

I am convinced - sign me up for a second series.

I'm afraid not; the series has been cancelled and the sets shipped off to serve a temporary accommodation for refugees. Shame - it was quirky enough to hold one's interest.

Cancelled because of the earlier complaints leading to further random and ridiculous scheduling over the 'holiday period' leading to a drop in viewing figures when people didn't know when and where to watch it. Apparently some people don't know how to read a TV guide or set a recorder. Smiley

As to the 'open' and unfinished cliff-hanger ending.....

So that's that.
