Do you have the guts to watch Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful” this Sunday, May 11?
Bloody has a really cool exclusive video blog featuring series consultant/historian Dr. Matthew Sweet in the famed “Bart’s Pathology Museum” discussing some of the science behind the medicine featured in the series, which is set in late 1800s Victorian England.
In “Penny Dreadful”, some of literature’s most famously terrifying characters – including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula, all brilliantly reimagined in a whole new light – have become embroiled in Victorian London.
The series stars Josh Hartnett (Black Hawk Down), Eva Green (Casino Royale) Timothy Dalton (The Living Daylights, Licence to Kill), Reeve Carney (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), Harry Treadaway (The Lone Ranger), Billie Piper (Doctor Who, Secret Diary of a Call Girl) and Danny Sapani (The Bill).
Of the eight episodes, the first two are directed by Juan Antonio Bayona, who helmed The Orphanage and the acclaimed film, The Impossible starring Naomi Watts in her Oscar-nominated performance. For more information and additional video clips, please visit the show’s dedicated website.
