Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Robert Louis Stevenson's influential tale of terror gets a modern re-imagining in this limited BBC series penned by Steven Moffat (Dr. Who, Coupling) and starring James Nesbitt. The year is 2007, and Dr. Tom Jackson (Nesbitt) just can't seem to reign in his murderous alter ego Mr. Hyde. While the two dueling personalities have stricken up a tenuous agreement to share the same body, the good doctor vows to use every technology at his disposal in order to contain the killer within. By using surveillance equipment and making a veritable deal with his own Devil, Dr. Jackman is certain that he can keep Mr. Hyde in check. But somewhere out there, Dr. Jackman and Mr. Hyde's every move is being monitored by an organization whose limitless wealth is only exceeded by their vast power. It seems that Mr. Hyde is no mistake of science and, much to Mr. Jackman's surprise, a plan hatched over a century ago is finally starting to unfold just like clockwork.
