    Anyone else been watching this? First two episodes (of six) have been pretty good so far. It's a interesting new twist on the old story what with the main character being married and actually having to deal with the consequences of what his "dark" side / Hyde does.

    Anyone got any ideas on how Tom can be a direct descendant of Dr Henry Jekyll (even though Jekyll had no children.)? My theory is that "Hyde" is the one that has reproduced with out the original Jekyll's knowledge and thus managed to keep the family tree going.

    Preview for next week episode is on the BBC's website here.

    That may be one point, but they say "Direct Descendants", Tom could have been related indirectly, via a brother or sister of the original Jekyll.

    I'd like to know how his (non)-mum got out of that room tbh.

    And Michelle Ryan is fit when not in Eastenders shouting and screaming.

    The lion scene was great, this weeks episode looks interesting. Looks like Tom has some explaining to do to his wife.

    Hyde can't get thru walls I don't think. He just plays tricks on your mind.

    Lion bit was truly awesome, especially the song, may try that when I go to a Safari park.

    Awesome episode.

    Hiren: definately was some extreme explaining going on there!

    Loved the way he killed that government guy then just said to the others "Do you want to defend him? Or just leave?"

    Yeah fantastic episode, this series just gets better.

    Now that his wife knows that he is two people. I loved the way she tied him up and taunted him a bit. Seems Hyde is getting attached to Tom's family unintentionally. Intriguing how a cure has existed for ages.

    Extremely weird about the
    cure
    . But if Hyde had left a note for Tom saying that the guy
    threatened Toms family
    , then Tom
    wouldn't have turned himself in
    .

    But I'm unsure about who/what runs the organisation? It seems a very heavy handed way of going round things, whereas simply talking to Tom before it got too far would have been easier and more efficient.

    The last one was brilliant,
    please don't take him to the US
    I think Jackman was coming through a bit when they threatened his children (2 becoming one?)

    That's a really good point oddball. I wonder if
    The longer Hyde and Tom coexist the more they "merge" into one another? Eventually becoming one person?

    Well, the whole two personalities thing is the point of the original story. You just have to keep them in balance, trapping one too much will make the other more prone to outbursts.

    I think he was having it off with the maid who looked like Tom's wife. After he died she would have left and no-one would have known about their relationship.

    The series appeared on TV-links the other Week. Only one Episode so far but expect they'll put more on.

    You usually need to install Divx 6.6 to stream it though. But it'll tell you this when you click on the link anyway.

    Another excellent series put out by the BBC. Jimmy Nesbitt is a fantastic actor.
