Frankenstein

Sean Bean returns for second series of The Frankenstein Chronicles

The Frankenstein Chronicles is a detective series set in 1830s London, where Inspector John Marlott investigates crimes that may have been committed by a scientist attempting to bring back the dead.

The first series saw him investigating a mutilated body washed up on the Thames, first thinking it was the body of a dead child. On further examination of the dead body he discovers it's not a child but an assembly of body parts arranged in parody of the human form.
