Basic info, storyline and cast
The Frankenstein Chronicles is a six-part original British criminal drama and mystery series that premiered on ITV Encore on November 11, 2015 and will also be broadcast on the A&E channel in US in 2016. The show is inspired by Mary Shelley`s classic novel and created and developed by Benjamin Ross and Barry Langford. It is produced by Rainmark Films.
The atmospheric and gory drama that re-imagines the well-known plot is set in foggy 19th century London. Brooding John Marlott (Sean Bean) is the inspector with his own psychological battle to fight, as he`s haunted by personal tragedy. He investigates a series of disturbing crimes that seem like they can be traced back to a single person – the diabolical scientist who`s intent on reanimating the dead. William Blake(Steven Berkhoff) and Mary Shelley (Anna Maxwell Martin) make guest appearances.
Reviews and prospects of renewal
The old-fashioned, yet chilling and utterly absorbing horror series has been universally acclaimed. The director`s work is highly praised along with excellent actors` performance, beautiful scenery and the authentic and truly captivating atmosphere. In line with the excellent ratings and positive reviews, the series just has to have some sort of a continuation – perhaps a second season that would feature the brilliant John Marlott solving another mysterious case.
