There has been a lot of talk in recent months about this new Showtime series Penny Dreadful, mainly because it was entirely shot in Dublin and Wicklow so gave Josh Hartnett a great excuse to hang about town. There have been teaser trailers coming in a plenty, and all have been eh, not for the fainthearted to say the least.

The show is a sort of psychological thriller set in Victorian London and comes from Skyfall co-writer John Logan and director Sam Mendes. It will feature some of literature's most iconic characters from Frankenstein to Dorian Gray, who all seem to be trapped in some kind of 'half world'. As well as Harnett, it will star former James Bond star Timothy Dalton, Billie Piper, and is also set to feature Love/Hate actress Mary Murray.

The show will air in the US on May 11th, so no doubt won't be too much longer for us lot over here.
