Learn More about Victorian Era Consumption from this Penny Dreadful Behind-the-Scenes VideoEva Green is getting most of the attention, but another “Penny Dreadful” actor is hitting it out of the park also: Billie Piper as Brona Croft. Sadly, Ms. Croft isn’t well, and in this new video author/historian Matthew Sweet explores the history and effects of consumption.

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.

Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Josh Hartnett, Harry Treadaway, Rory Kinnear, Billie Piper, and Eva Green star.

This weekend the season finale, Episode 1.08, “Grand Guignol,” airs, but don’t despair. As we learned earlier this month, Showtime has already renewed the series for a second season consisting of 10 episodes.
