A valiant attempt at trying to bring the piece to life, it fails on quite a few fronts, including the idiotic need to bring in an American character - tom sawyer - as an insult to American viewing audiences. It does capture Nemo, Jekyll and other in a good depiction but ultimately feels forced.
An insult to Alan Moore's essential series and the audience. Watch the "Penny Dreadful" show instead.
Do yourself a favor and read the book. Please.
