Some of literature’s most terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula are lurking in the darkest corners of Victorian London.
I remember reading about this new Showtime series a while back, but I wasn't aware that would be premiering in the Spring of 2014...
No Dorian Gray or Dracula in sight but I'm intrigued.
While I'm still not entirely clear on how all the parts will come together, it's probably safe to say Penny Dreadful won't be confused with something like ABC's Once Upon a Time.
BTW, there's a production blog for it here.
