JEKYLL & HYDE
Brilliant surgeon Ellie Jekyll is feeling the strain of caring for her terminally ill brother, Simon. Luckily, a newfound friendship with her neighbour, Abigail Hyde, proves to be just what the doctor ordered. However, when a young girl dies unexpectedly during surgery, Jekyll’s honourable name is tarnished, and her world begins to unravel around her.
Inspired by the Gothic novella by Robert Louis Stevenson, this fast paced drama blurs the lines between good and evil, insane imaginings and real life monsters.
Inspired by his bold, decisive approach to life, Sam edges closer to her magnetic new housemate, Danny. But after a violent dispute with their neighbour she is left struggling to locate her moral centre. Her best friend, Tess, is overwhelmed by anxiety as she approaches the twenty-fourth week of her pregnancy; and local policeman Greg is too lost trying to rekindle his relationship with his ex-wife to notice that their neighbour from Flat B is missing.
