Vanessa (to Ethan): It's an invitation.
It might be a few months away but after an initial concept trailer and behind the scenes stuff, Showtime have finally released some proper clips for their upcoming psychosexual series, Penny Dreadful. Once again, it seems that Eva Green's Vanessa Ives is the main character and within the fifty second trailer she's telling Josh Hartnett's Ethan Chandler about the two worlds that really exist. We see wolves, contortionists, sex orgies and certain paintings to name a few of the exciting things that Vanessa seems to be alluding to so heavily.
Other information that has recently appeared is that Billie Piper's character, Brona Croft will be from Belfast while Helen McCrory's character, Madame Kali is a spiritualist while Simon Beale Russell's character, Ferdinand Lyle is an eccentric Egyptologist. It's also been revealed that the show itself will be set in 1891 while exploring tones that the country is grappling with. It certainly looks like it's going to be quite the monster mash alright.
