PEOPLE Review: The New Season of Penny Dreadful Brings on Dr. Jekyll – and Probably His Famous Frenemy

Originally posted 05/01/2016 11:00PM

What fresh hell is this?

That's the question that starts any new season of Penny Dreadful, Showtime's darkly sumptuous, richly silly horror fantasy about the damned, the monstrous and the sexually alluring (which often encompasses the first two) in 19th-century London.

One answer comes when two Victorian gentlemen greet each other in a neighborhood of Dickensian squalor. "Dr. Frankenstein." "Dr. Jekyll." Mr. Hyde, presumably, will come tootling along soon, generating additional the violence and depravity – and at that point Shazad Latif's performance will lose its rather abstract gloominess. First, though, we'll witness some of Jekyll's interesting work with the insane deep within the windowless confines of Bedlam.

When dealing with any scientific line of inquiry on Penny Dreadful, a viewer's first thought is that you're better off in the control group, if there is one.

In each of his adventures, Bond has been paired with a stunningly beautiful woman. Sometimes they've been strong. Sometimes they've been deadly. Sometimes they've turned out to be villainesses.

Eva Green: 5 Things to Know About the Penny Dreadful Star and Campari Calendar Cover Girl

Originally posted 11/13/2014 10:00PM

"I love the one where I'm on the moon," Eva Green remarks as she flips through her Campari calendar images with PEOPLE. "The astronaut outfit and the hairdo is really cool. And the Negroni shot, where I'm in a Vivienne Westwood courtesan outfit, has such a laid-back, romantic mood."

The Penny Dreadful star, 34, is the face of the liqueur's 2015 calendar, shot by Julia Fullerton-Batten and celebrating the stories behind the brand's classic cocktails. With only 9,999 copies printed each year, the calendar never goes on sale but is instead distributed to friends of Campari.

"It's such an iconic brand and very artistic," Green tells PEOPLE of her decision to do the shoot. "I remember the pictures with Penélope Cruz – they were quite beautiful."

Originally posted 10/17/2008 01:30PM

Say this for Daniel Craig – he's a tough man in a tough role.

Having already gone on record to explain how he tore his shoulder jumping around as James Bond, the Quantum of Solace star tells Playboy for its November issue what also sent him to the hospital while making his latest 007 caper.

The visit involved his finger. "It wasn't as extreme as all that. I lost the pad. Here," says the actor, 40, showing off a scab on his fingertip. "This is after a month's healing, so it's nothing."
