This Showtime series is a blend of various Victorian figures from "penny dreadful" and classic horror tales. A nobleman explorer seeks to rescue his missing daughter from the underworld. An American adventurer seeks to escape his dark past and identity. An ageless, beautiful young predator seduces men and women alike. A famous mad scientist tries to cope with his unholy creation. And a mysterious woman who may be the incarnation of an Eqyptian demon transfixes and terrifies London society. All these characters are caught in a dark, lush web of mystery and terror rich in period detail.
