'''''Jekyll''''' is a bizarre six-episode British TV series from 2007, written by Creator/StevenMoffat as a deconstruction of the JekyllAndHyde trope and a partial sequel to ''Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDrJekyllAndMrHyde''. It tells the story of the scientist Dr. Tom Jackman, and his Mr. Hyde, who coexist in an uneasy relationship, the two communicating through a dictaphone and "changing" at designated times. Unfortunately, Jackman is married with children, and he will go to any length to prevent his other side from finding out about them. Even worse is the arrival of a shadowy agency intent on capturing Hyde for their own ends.

Not to be confused with the other British Jekyll and Hyde series, ITV'S ''Series/JkeyllAndHyde2015''.

* {{Badass}}
** Hyde is a clear-cut example.
** Claire. There's really nothing else you can say about an InnocentBystander who can go stand up to the most lethal force in the world, and not die. She's also a MamaBear. It does help that the most lethal force in the world is in love with her, would never dream of harming her and would literally do anything for her, including sacrifice himself, but that's only after she stands up to him so.



* DroppedABridgeOnHim: In the series 1 finale, the show introduces Carver, a {{Badass}} merc who is tasked in taking down Hyde. The two finally become face to face with each other and... Hyde just tosses Carver off the roof they were on in a truly hilarious manner.

* MamaBear: Despite knowing full well what Hyde can do, Claire says she'll kill him if he goes near her children.
** The trope itself is lampshaded when explaining the true nature of Hyde.

Added DiffLines:

* WeddingRingRemoval: Jackman always slips his wedding ring off just before turning into Hyde, as he doesn't want Hyde to know that he's married. When Jackman turns into Hyde in front of his wife Claire for the first time, the wedding ring falls off to mark the moment of transformation. Basically, if Jackman's ring comes off then he's either about to become Hyde or has already done so.

* ASinisterClue: One of the differences between Hyde and Dr Jackman is that Hyde is left-handed while Jackman is not.
