Women In Refrigerators is a website. The relevant trope here is Stuffed Into A Fridge, but it's not an example unless the women were killed for the sake of hurting Jekyll.
* WomenInRefrigerators: The UsefulNotes/{{Jack the Ripper}} case happened a couple of years after, and a theater adaptation was cancelled as a result. The public association of the two led to greater emphasis in adaptations on Hyde attacking women, often in the East End of London.

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Jekyll after Hyde kills Danvers Carew. After this, he stops characterizing Hyde as being a part of himself, instead attempting to distance himself from the persona by referring to Hyde as a separate entity attempting to seize control of his body.

* Straightforward adaptations in 1919 (with John Barrymore), 1931 (with Fredric March and Miriam Hopkins), 1941 (with Creator/SpencerTracy, Creator/IngridBergman and Lana Turner) and 1960 (a Hammer version with Paul Massie). All these adaptations made substantial changes to the main plot - in particular, Jekyll tends to be cast much younger than he is in the novel, and a female love interest is usually added. They also abandon the character of Utterson and his investigation for a story centered on Jekyll and Hyde. Also, the March version is the only one to regularly use the (little-known) correct pronunciation of "Jekyll" (''Jee''-kyll). The 1931 film is probably the best-regarded film version. It offers a rare case of a horror film winning an UsefulNotes/AcademyAward, as March won Best Actor for his portrayal of Jekyll and Hyde.

* {{ITV}}'s series ''Jekyll & Hyde'' follows Robert Jekyll, grandson of the Henry Jekyll from the novel, and is set in the 1930s. It is, according to WordOfGod, a superhero-type show in the vein of X-Men, and as such Hyde is just one of many supernatural creatures targeted by a sinister CreatureHunterOrganization.
