Showtime’s Penny Dreadful is a series about fighting one’s demons – whatever they may be – using a combination of characters from great literature and original ones.
The series opened as a tale of a man trying to save his daughter from vampires and gradually, subtly shifted to his surrogate daughter’s fight for her soul. It was, in short, a masterpiece of supernatural suspense.
Penny Dreadful: The Complete Series is in stores tomorrow.
Since December 13th, John Logan, creator of Showcase’s Penny Dreadful has produced three production blog entries dealing with various aspects of the making of the series – beginning with a bit of history and a definition of what a penny dreadful is.
