Welcome to Victorian London, ladies, and gentlemen, a place where the vilest creatures of the world have found a shelter. The authorities are helpless against them, which means only a group of heroes can defeat them. Chandler is a gunslinger, and he can kill anything that moves with a single shot. Murray is a researcher and an explorer, a man who can find a way out from any bizarre labyrinth. Frankenstein is a man of science. And then there's the beautiful Vanessa, a medium. These fine folks are the city's last hope and the locals depend on them. Gritty, provocative, scandalous and all kinds of exciting, Penny Dreadful is a TV series like nothing you've seen before.
