So, did you take advantage of the early look at Episode 1.01 of “Penny Dreadful,” entitled “Night Work,” we provided a few days ago, or are you waiting for the premiere this weekend? Either way, here’s a new video blog examining “The Science of Medicine.”
In the below video author/historian Matthew Sweet meets with technical curator Carla Valentine at the Barts Pathology Museum in London to explore the science and medicine behind “Penny Dreadful.”
The series premieres on Showtime on Sunday, May 11th, at 10PM ET/PT. Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Josh Hartnett, Harry Treadaway, Rory Kinnear, Billie Piper, and Eva Green star. Juan Antonio Bayona (The Orphanage, The Impossible) directed the first two episodes.
A profoundly unsettling new saga, “Penny Dreadful” completely reinvents literature’s most terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and iconic figures from the novel Dracula, who are lurking in the darkest corners of Victorian London.
