I hate those people who left the cliffhanger.

A week!!!!!!

I love this programme.

RTKangaMummy Sat 14-Jul-07 21:58:59

I know,

I wanted to see a preview of next week

Which one do you think is going to be there?

TheArmadillo Sun 15-Jul-07 12:53:50

I hoping for Tom Jackman so everything can be happy and roses.

I have a feeling though that even if it is him things will not be happy and roses.

But where the hell did he come from?

homemama Sun 15-Jul-07 20:03:13

I think it's going to be Tom Jackman but I think there's going to be something about the second twin. Is he the same, perhaps? I thought the labour scene was setting up for that. Scans showed one baby, one heartbeat?? How often does that happen? He also saw Hyde in the car when TJ turned up at the house. He said he saw Uncle Billy.
I'm thinking there's something going on there.

TheArmadillo Sun 15-Jul-07 20:18:16

Yeah there's definately something going on with him. They've said before he's a bit odd I'm sure.

I thought the twin thing was odd too. It's very unlikely to happen.

See I think (have nothing to base this on mind) that the twins may be Jekyll and Hyde but divided into two bodies.

I missed it this week due to video recording wrong side. Can anyone do a run-down for me of what happened, so I'm not totally lost when I watch it next week?


TheArmadillo Sun 15-Jul-07 23:26:06

last time ended with TOm being put int he box, his wife chained in back of van and driven to institute place by guy who was supposed to be his mate.

Anyway turns out Tom's claustrophobic (which friend guy knew). It went back to when Tom first met Claire (his wife) and when he first turned into Hyde. Stress set it off and he kept seeing someone else's reflection with his and then saw Hyde in mirror.

Thought he was losing it as was writing things he couldn't remember (I am coming) and hearing things that noone else could hear etc.

Also saw the first time he got the flat and the first time he recorded Hyde on video (was really freaky).

Then PI (Meera Syal) and her girlfriend and Tom's nurse turn up outside the institute place. She rings ex-friend guy, and his girlfriend (the secretary he was shagging) and all the other women in the room he had shagged (basically all of them) and got quite complicated as she was talking to him on many different phones at once (to freak him out).She said she knew about WInston Churchhill.

TheArmadillo Sun 15-Jul-07 23:26:26

Basically then you have PI (plus gf and nurse) and Claire in a room with ex-friend guy. Tom is still in the box. PI recounts what she has found out. Bascially there were rumours that this company were trying to clone Winnie in 1950s. Dr Jekyll had no descendants so Tom must be clone. Ex-friend tells her its all crap and they have no idea where Tom came from but they have a cure.

Then takes Claire down to where box is and tells her Tom is dying as DNA so fucked up now. They've given him the cure but don't know which one he will be.

Claire opens box - cue ending. No preview shown for next week. We don't know who is going to be.

Sorry can;t do long posts so had to divide it.

themoon66 Sun 15-Jul-07 23:39:24

Phew... thank you so much Armadillo!

Thought I would just add another idea, when talking to her friend (on the phone from their holiday) Tom's wife said 'his eyes go black just like mine' so is she connected to Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde in some way other than being married to him. I don't know but I think it's a fantastic programme as well.

Oblomov Mon 16-Jul-07 07:25:32

We love it. I haven't watched this episode yet. I can't work out what is going on at all. Trying to predict the outcome / final programme is .... impossible.

RTKangaMummy Thu 19-Jul-07 20:00:48


IT IS ....................... WHO COMES OUT OF THE BOX

morgansauntie Thu 19-Jul-07 21:44:14

Just watched the trailer on the BBC website

His wife did say that Tom (Jekyll and Hyde) Jackman suffered from claustrophobia when they put him in the box. Could it be that Dr Jekyll died but somehow Mr Hyde survived -confined spaces = coffin, so he is a desendant of Mr Hyde but then where does his wife fit in to it all?. Just a thought will have to wait and see.

mytwopenceworth Sat 21-Jul-07 19:56:19

Morgansauntie - I thought his wife said that his eyes go black when he, erm, you know, plays hide the sausage and she was saying to her friend how good a lover she is that she can make him do that!

morgansauntie Sat 21-Jul-07 22:02:12

I'm slightly confused! his wife is the link isn't she but what has the other woman got to do with it?

morgansauntie Sat 21-Jul-07 22:24:08

saying that it was a very good dramatic episode and I really enjoyed it but it was obvious (well to me anyway) that Mr Hyde would come out of the box, is the link the sexual relationship between Tom/Mr Hyde and his wife as mytwopenceworth suggested or is his wife related to the maid? I'm getting even more confused can somebody help

Imawurzel Sun 22-Jul-07 15:53:32

It is odd.
Dh reckons that the maid does bring out the 'hyde side' and that they left together, cos everytime maid and jeckyll are together hyde comes along.
So, he reckons that they went off together, jeckyll 'died' hyde stayed, maid and hyde had children, and maybe thats why her face was scratched out of all those photos.

Does that make sense??
And that the woman that was jackmans mum is a desendant(sp) of the maid and hyde.
Doesn't quite make sense now i read it back to myself.
You get the gist.

morgansauntie Sun 22-Jul-07 18:12:03

Imawurzel I can see where your husband is coming from and it does make sense

another theory I had is - does the maid look like Tom's wife hence the face is scratched out

or Robert Louis Stevenson knew it was the maid and not a potion so is he related to Tom? - stevenson and the maid

on another forum somebody thinks the americian lady is Tom's mum in disguise

I do seem to find Hyde scary and funny at the same time am I weird?

I am going to wait till next week as its driving me bonkers I think we could all write our own ending

Malfoynomore Sun 22-Jul-07 18:27:08

I watched it last week and this week and am really confused but also very drawn in
The Hyde character....well, when he went for that guy on the peer he obviously was reaslly freaky, but in yesterdays episode he was quite funny....and now they are reunited the Jekyl and Hyde and back in full power, could be very interesting.
About that american woman...I was thinking maybe she is a relative or something....
hm.I am sure all will be clear by the end...unless it's like Lost that it nver becomes really clear, lol!

TaLcYo Sun 22-Jul-07 18:30:08

completely confused here....having only watched last nights and the zoo one!

very with myself for missing the idea what's going on, but really enjoying

Imawurzel Sat 28-Jul-07 19:14:13


I think

morgansauntie Sat 28-Jul-07 22:24:18

Personally I thought it was a brilliant episode and a fantastic series and I think I actually understood it in the end It seems different people got different parts of it right.

His wife Clare was related to Alice or at least cloned from her, it was love that brought Mr Hyde, his mother and the Americian woman were one and the same and his twins are a bit strange!

I actually felt sad at the end for Mr Hyde

I think I will have to get the DVD, I presume anyone reading this has watched the final episode if not I'm sorry
