Part conspiracy thriller, part comic horror, this extraordinary retelling of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic takes the ultimate tale of inner conflict to new heights. It is 2007 and there's a new Dr Jekyll, with the same old problem - Mr Hyde. But the pair have a deal - a body share - and an impossible life is somehow lived. What Hyde doesn't know is that Jekyll is married. There's a wife and two children he'll do anything to protect from his dark side. With all the resources of modern technology, and the best surveillance hardware, Jekyll is determined to keep his alter ego in check by doing a deal with his own devil. What neither of them know is a secret organisation, with limitless wealth and power, is monitoring their every move, and a plan over a century in the making is coming to fruition. The return of Dr Jekyll is no accident...

They're not looking for the kind of exposure that a return gig on national television would give them, oh no. Not at all. Or sucking up. How dare you even suggest such a thing?!
