BBC’s Jekyll Coming to DVD


Street date: September 18th

BBC Video fired off some details regarding the 2-disc DVD release of the BBC America mini-series Jekyll.

Described by writer Steven Moffat (“Doctor Who,” “Coupling”) as “somewhere between a modern horror story and The Odd Couple,” Jekyll takes the ultimate tale of inner conflict to unforgettable new heights.

Set in present day London, an ancient monster – one that has terrified, thrilled and titillated the world for over a hundred years – is preparing to return.

The mini-series stars James Nesbitt (Match Point) as Dr. Jackman, a contemporary man with an ancient curse – Mr. Hyde.

The 2-disc DVD set boasts over five hours of content and features bonus material including featurettes (Jekyll: The Tale Retold, Jekyll: The Anatomy of a Scene) and audio commentary.

The whole shebang will set you back about $29.98.
