  Great stuff

| | See all slowen's reviews (15)

What can I say apart from this is a great drama by BBC 1 and James Nesbitt plays a great role in depicting Jekyll & Hyde. If you have missed this on BBC 1 then you must buy the DVD as you will not be disapointed and I will be purchasing even though I have seen all the episodes shown on the BBC so far

This is one of the best things I have ever seen on BBC1, Nesbitt is fantastic, if he could win an oscar he should, I also feel i should mention Michelle Ryan, she has come a long way from albert square, great cast, a must see series.
loved it loved it loved it

this is one of the best tellevision shows i have ever seen. i have been hooked from the very first episode. the cast couldnt be more perfect. everyone fits the roles they are suposed to be playing. its very creepy at times as well, and you dont normaly see that for a 9:00 tv program. highly reomend this if you havent watched it yet.

  Best BBC show in years

| | See all KevinG's reviews (2)

I have to say this series has had me hooked from episode one (and thats saying something coming from someone with a attention span of a goldfish). Sure it has had some dodgy moments and can be slightly confusing at times but all in all James Nesbitt plays a corker, it can't be easy having to play 2 characters. The supporting cast is also spot on, this series has picked the best actors/actresses for each role and they have delivered stunning performances all round... If I was to have any greivence I would say that Jekyll should not run for more than one series. If they tried a second series I do not think it would fair as well as this series has.

  Fantastic!

| | See all Tallis's reviews (5)

What a superb series this is turning out to be - the writing by Steven Moffat is first class and James Nesbitt is perfect in his dual roles. The rest of the cast are, on the whole, very good too.

I really can't praise this enough - if you haven't watched it then I urge you to give it a go.

  Interesting, and better by the week!

In contrast to the first review, I'd never liked James Nesbitt before: in fact I found him extremely annoying in those twee adverts, but this series, which I only entertained at all because of Steven Moffat, is getting better by the week.

The first week confused me, I confess, because I was expecting a straight modern take on the old Jekyll and Hyde series, and instead I was plunged head first into the hideous world of a man living with his own dark side and using every means at his disposal, from CCTV to hiring a new PA, to deal with that.

But after that intial discord this series has so far delivered so much more than my mistaken belief could have done - and it all starts to come clear in ep 4, aired just before I typed this.

I love the La Femme Nikita(tv series)-esque stylings, and the "Are you my daddy?" question in ep 4 made me howl - echoing Moffat's Hugo Award winning "The Empty Child" & "The Doctor Dances" episodes from season one of the new Dr Who.

But this isn't just one for geeks - if you've ever been alarmed by your own dark side, or woken up after one too many wondering what the heck possessed you the night before, this series will strike a chord. Genius.

  Very Disapointed In This

| | See all Bunnygirl79's reviews (10)

I am not very keen on this new series. I enjoy the older versions of Jekyll and Hyde so I guess I'm slightly biased! The changes from Jackman to Hyde are very subtle but how many times do we need to see that his eyes change from normal to black? Over and over again it's done the same way. To be honest I don't find Hyde too threatening either. I'd advise people to watch older versions. Even Michael Caine as Jekyll and Hyde was better then this.

Anyone who slates Jekyyl and James Nesbitts' performance clearly arent ready to watch anything more sophiscated than the care bears!!! I very rarely watch a tv programme but I am completely hooked, I am there in front of the tv every week to watch the next episode! Anyone who slates this master piece is a muppet. BUY THE DVD

  Fantastic!

It's so good! I wasn't sure what to expect when i saw a small clip but i started watching it from the beginning and the twists it had and the way the story has progressed has made it into a brilliant show with some great acting and characters. I'll be buying it!

  Am I the only person that hates this series?

| | See all HookeyStreet's reviews (4)

I usually like Jimmy Nesbitt, but this series is AWFUL! When Nesbitt transforms into 'Hyde', hes like Jimmy Carrey in The Mask, but without the humour!

Avoid this rubbish and watch the original.
