Timothy Dalton Would 'Murder The World' To Get His Daughter Back
At least in the context of his Penny Dreadful character.

Timothy Dalton will play a famed African hunter on a quest to save his daughter in Showtime’s incoming horror series Penny Dreadful.

Which, to me at least, sounds perfect. Timmy Dalton should always be on a quest of some sort, preferably to save a love one via violent means. Specifically if he gets to use his voice a lot. It’s just playing to his strengths, really.

Despite the most in depth look at Penny Dreadful yet, which blends Victorian London with some of the most recognizable characters in the history of horror fiction, I’m still on the fence about this one.

On the one hand, it looks like a brave synergy, an uncommon spinning of familiar tales, a visceral exploration of themes typically shied away from.

On the other hand it just looks really very naff…

Either way, I’ll find out if my two cents on Penny Dreadful hold up when the series premieres on May 11th.
