I've been quietly watching this series, and so far the first three episodes had me thinking "this isn't bad, I could enjoy this"

Then we hit episodes 4 and 5, and with 5, wow..
quite simply.. wow.

Next week they end it with the 6th episode, so far all written by Steven Moffat.

This is what the BBC does better then any US network, they see a series as a self contained entity, and carry it through at the same caliber all the way through with no break. Sometimes it's hit or miss ala Torchwood, but this time, well let me go back a few lines.. wow.. This is a must have DVD purchase if it comes to the US unedited and with commentaries, I already want more of the story.

ok I'm done waxing for a bit

I'm also enjoying it quite a bit, and James Nesbitt does an excellent job in his dual role. Loved the line about Spencer Tracy (who played Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde way back in 1941). Can't wait for the conclusion next week...

I loved so many of the episode 5 developments,
  • Claire's "dream"
  • Hyde's growing relationship with the family
  • The "secret" to the potion
  • London's "power issue"
  • The flashbacks to 1886

I had thought Robin Hood was good filler from the BBC, (and I enjoyed it) but this takes the level up much higher.

I was surprised there wasn't more buzz about this series on this board, it's been one of my favorite programs this summer. I was patiently waiting for the 5 episode to turn up on EasyNews until I gave up and went with BT. Same content but faster download.

Sad to see it end this Saturday.

Really amazing series. I figured I'd give it a try, and was on the edge of my seat most of the time.

Great acting, great storytelling. Nice to see Claire in a different type of role than Coupling (which I also thought was great!)
