Summary

A brand-new BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of the classic novel by Robert Louis Stevenson.

At its heart is an enigma: what is the strange connection between the apparently unrelated Dr Henry Jekyll and Mr Edward Hyde? A battle between good and evil is played out in Victorian London, and its origins are stranger than anyone could imagine.

poorly representative of the original story

A decent performance that is poorly representative of the original story. They changed too much in the plot and it detracted from the quality of the work.
