First teaser for new horror series Penny Dreadful
Monsters are promised in this first teaser for new Showtime horror series, Penny Dreadful...
The latest casting news for Sam Mendes-produced horror series Penny Dreadful concerns a certain former Companion to the Doctor, one Billie Piper. The actress is to play Brona Croft, an Irish immigrant trying to escape a dark past, in the new Showtime/Sky Atlantic drama.
Piper joins Eva Green and Josh Hartnett in Penny Dreadful, which is to be set in Victorian London and feature a host of literary characters and monsters including the likes of Dracula, Frankenstein (and, presumably, his creature), and Dorian Grey.
