The Frankenstein Chronicles

review by
Mike Haberfelner



As set up in the last episode, Marlott (Sean Bean), who has solved the Frankenstein Murders, is the only person who doesn't believe he found the right culprit, and thus he investigates further, believing that Lord Hervey (Ed Stoppard), whose "alternative" clinic has been shut under the Anatomy Act, actually conducts experiments to raise the dead. He's also convinced that Flora (Eloise Smyth), a child prostitute he saved, is a key witness, which is why he keeps her locked up in his flat, even if he knows she and his assistant Nightingale (Richie Campbell) are in love with one another and has even given his blessings. This leads to Nightingale eventually breaking up with Marlott. Marlott however manages to find proof for his theories, but since he's less and less coherent due to his syphilis and talks about raising the dead too much, nobody believes him - until he catches Lord Hervey and his assistant red-handed ... but he's overpowered, to later wake up in his own bed, covered in blood, next to Flora's cut up, lifeless body - and when Nightingale finds Marlott that way, nobody can blame him to assume that it was Marlott who murdered the girl - also given his condition of course. So Marlott is tried, convicted, and hanged until dead. But eventually he comes back to life in Lord Hervey's lab, stitched together from parts of different bodies (which at least cures the syphilis) - and he goes mad with rage ...

 

Now this is quite a finale to a series that was interesting enough as it was. And beside very clever writing with many an unexpected twist and turn and an atmospheric directorial effort, major praise here goes to Sean Bean, who really outdoes himself in playing Marlott as a man who desparately tries to cling to what he perceives reality while more and more losing it, thus playing the anti-hero to perfection. And he's only the leader of a top notch cast. Basically, this is a finale that's really worth to be called that, and a worthy coda to one of the more extraordinary series of its day.
