Frankenstein first order for ITV Encore

Quote
 
ITV has ordered its first original commission for Sky pay-TV channel Encore, a Sean Bean-fronted drama about Frankenstein.


The broadcaster is working on The Frankenstein Chronicles with Rainmark Films, a feature film producer turned TV indie.

The 6 x 60-minute series is a reworking of the Frankenstein myth - the Mary Shelley story about an eccentric scientist who creates a grotesque creature - that combines a detective drama with a horror thriller.

Game of Thrones star Sean Bean plays Detective John Marlott, the central character who must fight crime, while facing his diabolical foe.

ITV Encore launched exclusively on Sky in June and shows repeats of scripted shows such as Broadchurch and Downton Abbey.

However, director of television Peter Fincham and drama controller Steve November have said that the channel will also air one or two original dramas in its first year.

At ITV’s annual Producers’ Forum in July, November said that he was hunting for two six-part original series for 2015 that contain horror, fantasy and supernatural elements.

He said that they must be “British, accessible and largely optimistic” and that he wasn’t looking for projects that are about “grizzled detectives, dead prostitutes and abused women”.

Rainmark TV

The Frankenstein Chronicles is one of the first TV projects for Rainmark Films, which is run by co-managing directors Tracey Scoffield, who has produced feature films including Dirty Pretty Things and The Other Man, and Frank Doelger, who has produced TV series including Rome and Game of Thrones.

The company has a major drama, created by 12 Years A Slave director Steve McQueen, in development with the BBC and has previously produced BBC2’s Churchill: Into The Storm.

It was also responsible for HBO TV movie The Special Relationship, starring Michael Sheen, which helped it to secure a first-look deal with the Time Warner-backed premium US broadcaster.

Struggling to see how Frankenstein can be seen as 'optimistic'

Would also prefer ITV to think about producing more high quality drama for its terrestrial channels and cut back on the never ending reality drivel

Now this sounds interesting. The 6x60minutes format is much more suitable for him. He tends to create much more interesting characters given the longer format. And it does sound like he'll be the headliner. And its at ITV, so he should feel right at home. ITV has done pretty good by him.

Frankenstein-inspired TV show gets Fox pilot commitment

Quote
The gothic story that keeps on giving has spawned a new TV project, with Fox giving a put pilot commitment to Frankenstein.

Rand Ravich will write and executive produce the show, while Homeland's Howard Gordon is also taking on executive producer duties.

Inspired by Mary Shelley's famous novel of the same name, Frankenstein will focus on Adam Tremble, a corrupt FBI agent who dies and is brought back to life by scientists, reports Deadline.

He then has to decide whether to fall back into his old habits or take on an opportunity given to him by the new lease of life, doing the jobs a normal FBI agent can't.

He also has to deal with complicated relationships with his 'creators' - an antisocial internet billionaire and his twin sister bio-engineer.
 


Quote
  A modern UK version of the story is also in the works, to air on ITV Encore, with Sean Bean taking the role of Frankenstein's monster in the show.

I wish that they would just make one television show about Frankenstein and show it in both countries. That
would be cheaper and easier to make. Of course Sean would have to star in it for me to watch it. I'm a little
confused is Sean playing a detective, an agent or the monster ????

ITV commissions The Frankenstein Chronicles starring Sean Bean

Quote
   
ITV today confirmed commission of The Frankenstein Chronicles, a thrilling and terrifying re-imagining of the Frankenstein myth as a six-part period crime drama to be produced by Rainmark Films.

 Incorporating elements from the investigative and horror genres with an extraordinary hero at its centre, Inspector John Marlott, played by multi-awarding winning leading actor Sean Bean (Game of Thrones, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Accused) will be taken on a terrifying journey in pursuit of a chilling and diabolical foe.
Set in Regency London in 1827, The Frankenstein Chronicles has been created by Emmy nominated director and writer Benjamin Ross (The Young Poisoner’s Handbook, Torte Bluma – both as director) and writer Barry Langford (Torte Bluma).

In the drama’s opening sequences, the Home Secretary Sir Robert Peel, following a successful operation by Thames River Police to apprehend a gang of opium smugglers, recruits Marlott.
As he stands on the water’s edge contemplating the arrest of the smugglers, Marlott makes a shocking discovery.  The body of a dead child is washed up on the shore and on further examination of the corpse he is horrified to discover it’s not actually a child but rather a crude assembly of body parts arranged in a grotesque parody of a human form.  The mutilated child-like body leaves an indelible impression on Marlott and he finds himself unable to shake off the memory of what has happened that fateful night.
With a formidable reputation as an investigator, he is known as a man who “doesn’t know the meaning of fear,” so it comes as no surprise when coldly efficient Peel, summons him insisting the “details of your investigation must remain confidential.” And after what he’s witnessed Marlott accepts the challenge to track the perpetrator of this heinous crime.
We follow him as he pursues the crazed killer behind the mutilated body.  As he investigates, Marlott discovers that what he’s dealing with is more horrific than he could possibly have imagined.

Filming will begin in Northern Ireland with funding from Northern Ireland Screen in January 2015 and further information with regard to casting will be announced in due course.
Endemol Worldwide Distribution will be responsible for international sales outside UK/Ireland.

I really like the sound of this as well! Very much looking forward to seeing who else joins the cast.

As well as Enemy of Man, I was wondering what this means for Legends should season 2 get the go ahead...from memory they started filming the season proper around April this year? If they followed a similar schedule I guess Sean could do both without too much trouble.

Whatever happens, looks like a super busy 2015 coming up!

Post by: Sable899 on November 17, 2014, 07:26:19 PM
VERY MUCH like the sounds of this one! Beano back in period costume. The type of closed-end project that he likes. Successful history with ITV (Sharpe, Extremely Dangerous, Bravo Two Zero). Yes, indeed, hoping this project moves forward! Plus, there's always the possibility of him returning to the role for another run, if his character survives the ending. This brings to mind Ripper Street and Whitechapel.

Title: Re: The Frankenstein Chronicles
Post by: Sable899 on December 13, 2014, 01:48:06 PM
Its still set to start in January and he's still attached to it. Its looking to be about 6, possibly 8, episodes which is very common for British drama series, especially period dramas.  Legends won't start filming until late Spring, filming over May/June/July like it did before. Very easy for him to do both.

When a series or film gets "commissioned" by ITV or BBC its a "sure" thing. When commissioning they put up the funds first and foremost. Its like commissioning a piece of art. Work begins almost immediately. Its like when a new season of Downton or Dr. Who gets commissioned.

Anna Maxwell Martin joins Sean Bean in The Frankenstein Chronicles

More bodies pile up in ITV’s loose adaptation


Quote
  Anna Maxwell Martin has been cast in ITV’s upcoming gothic period crime drama The Frankenstein Chronicles.

The Bletchely Circle actress joins Sean Bean in a "re-imagining" of the novel. The publicity materials also call it a "myth", but I'm not sure anyone believes Frankenstein actually happened and it wasn’t passed down by folklore. That said, Shelley is thought to have incorporated some Promethean myth from Ovid into the story (I digress).

Also joining Bean are Charlie Creed-Miles from Ripper Street and Peaky Blinders; Ed Stoppard (Cilla); Elliot Cowan (Da Vinci’s Demons) and about half the cast of Game of Thrones (Kate Dickie, Patrick Fitzsymons, Steve Wilson). Steven Berkoff is in there too.

Essentially, Frankenstein is going to be spoiled for choice when it comes to body parts.

The six-part adaptation will have all of the familiar elements from Mary Shelley’s classic story. Sean Bean plays Inspector John Marlott, who delves into the underworld of Georgian England after discovering a chopped up and reassembled child during a run-of-the-mill opium raid.

Oh, also, Tom Ward (Silent Witness) will play Sean Bean’s boss – the real-life home secretary Robert Peel – because, well, it's reimagined.

Hollywood star Sean Bean has been at Gosford near Markethill as the stunning park and castle get another starring role!

After its popularity as a location for the global hit series Game of Thrones, Gosford has gone gothic, the stage set for a reworking of the Frankenstein tale based on Mary Shelley’s classic work.

Bean – star of numerous hit movies and TV series such as Sharpe – has been at the forest park this week for filming on The Frankenstein Chronicles, a show which ITV confirmed it had commissioned last November.

Frankenstein comes to Ballyclare

Quote
Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones star Sean Bean could be on his way to Ballyclare to film scenes for a new TV drama series.


The award-winning English actor, who has also played leading roles in GoldenEye, National Treasure and historical war drama Sharpe, will star in a new six-part TV crime thriller, The Frankenstein Chronicles - part of which is being filmed in Ballyclare.

Northern Ireland Screen, which is funding part of the project, said it “cannot disclose location information during live shoots.” But the Times can reveal that some scenes for the new series are being filmed in the grounds of the old Kirkpatrick Bros. Ltd linen mill on Green Road.

It’s understood that a special set featuring a street scene has been constructed at the site and that filming was due to start this week.

Certainly an interesting job for Poppie who was confirmed to be used for a face and body mould for forthcoming ITV drama The Frankenstein Chronicles!

Poppie's mum told us of the experience 'Poppie had an unusual but exciting day as her head, arm, leg and torso were moulded! They started with the head/face and Poppie was amazing, so calm and kept giving us the thumbs up during the procedure! The artists were lovely and talked through each stage.
They were so thrilled with Poppie and are going to post her the face cast they took!'

Longhorn cattle -say what now?  Has the action moved from Victorian London to Texas for some reason?  How weird!

Given that I would thought that such filming was a good news story as a counterpoint to all the awful news stories they have from that part of the world, and that the productions bring tourism and create jobs, I dropped a line to Newsline - the BBCNI daily news/current affairs show and mentioned that some coverage of the filming would be interesting and not even the courtesy of a reply which is a bit shitty as I pay the Licence Fee that keeps them in their jobs.

Anyone else want to have a crack?

Quote
English Longhorn cattle are a long-horned brown and white breed of beef cattle originating from Craven, in the north of England. The breed was initially used as a draught animal, which its body is well suited for; the milk was also collected for butter and cheese because of its high butterfat content. An individual farmer would have owned one or two cows; these would have been accompanied by a bull owned by the Lord of the Manor.[1] The notable long, curved horns that serve to distinguish this breed from others can make an individual appear aggressive, although by temperament they are usually friendly. Longhorns live surprisingly longer than other breeds of cattle and are also known for calving with ease. They have a white patch along the line of their spine and under their bellies.

They are not to be confused with the Texas Longhorn breed, which is also often called "Longhorn cattle" or "Longhorns".

Though long-horned oxen were already predominant in Craven in the 16th and 17th centuries, the English Longhorn breed was much improved for beef by Robert Bakewell of Dishley, when large amounts of meat were needed to feed people who had moved to towns and cities in the Industrial Revolution.

Thank you Patch!  :)

I knew they were a northern breed, I've heard of them in Scotland but I always think of the ones they have wandering (fairly) free round NASA in Houston to keep the grass trimmed - not exactly what you expect to see amongst the rockets but hey.

PICTURED: Game of Thrones star Sean Bean spotted in South Belfast filming The Frankenstein Chronicles

Quote
Game of Thrones star Sean Bean was spotted filming scenes for his latest TV project in South Belfast on Sunday.

The 55-year-old actor was snapped filming on Upper Crescent, off University Road, for ITV's six-part period drama The Frankenstein Chronicles, which has been filming across Northern Ireland.

The drama is a re-imagining of the Frankenstein myth, produced by Rainmark Films, which incorporates elements from the investigative and horror genres. 


Bean, who played Ned Stark in the popular HBO series which was also filmed partly in Northern Ireland, takes on the role of Inspector John Marlott.

 The drama is set in Regency London in 1827 and has been created by Emmy nominated director and writer Benjamin Ross and writer Barry Langford.

Bean was with other cast in period costume along with a horse-drawn carriage surrounded by film crew at a Georgian building on Upper Crescent off University Road.

The Sheffield born actor is the star of the new six-part period crime drama for ITV, which began filming in January.

 
Set in Regency London in 1827, the show is said to incorporate elements from the investigative and horror genres.

Known for his roles in Game of Thrones and The Lord of the Rings, Bean plays the show’s hero Inspector John Marlott

Not looking so Sharpe now! A rugged Sean Bean slips into period dress to film The Frankenstein Chronicles in Belfast

Quote
Sean Bean was travelling back in time on Sunday, when he donned period garbs to film The Frankenstein Chronicles.

The English actor, who first found fame in ITV series Sharpe, was in Northern Ireland over the weekend to film the new six-part crime drama for the channel.

Sean, 55, was captured smiling in a brown hat, long coat and a brown waistcoat on Upper Crescent off University Road in Belfast.

The versatile actor, whose credits include Game of Thrones, The Lord of the Rings and Jupiter Ascending, is taking on the role of Inspector John Marlott working for Thames River Police.

Filming began for the period drama - set in Regency London in 1827 - in January this year and the actor looks like he's already getting to grips with the role.

He flashed a small smile as he approached a horse drawn carriage outside some of the elegant building on University Road as he was caught between takes.

Sean was accompanied by a young beauty in full costume, which included a bonnet and teal full skirt, though layered up with a contemporary padded jacket for warmth.

The Rainmark Films production is a reworking of Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein - which is about a scientist who creates a monster - and combines a detective drama plot with the original horror thriller story line.

A series of crimes are thought to be linked to the scientist Dr Frankenstein, as John will come to investigate.

1827? Sharpe would still be hale and healthy. This is sounding like the sort of character that Sharpe would be better suited to than as a farmer in Normandy. Hmmmm.... will be interesting to see what sort of personality they give Marlott.

It's very possible that a second series is underway. If I recall correctly, they did the same with Whitechapel. Once they saw the finished pre-air product of the first series they gave the go ahead for a second and once the first series aired they gave the ok for a third series.

This sounds right for a series that should turn out to be on a par with Whitechapel and Ripper Street. Apparently, they structured filming around his other work requirements, taking time out for JA promo and such. I think we're all going to be quite pleased with the results if history is anything to go by.

Quote
The Frankenstein Chronicles is currently in production in Northern Ireland, where it has received funding from Northern Ireland Screen, and Endemol Shine International will be selling the six-part series in Cannes next month.

 Sean Bean leads the cast in his first series for ITV since Sharpe. He plays a fearless detective on the hunt for a crazed killer through the dark recesses of Regency London.

“We were taken by the originality of this project,” Scoffi eld said. “It’s a mash-up of a genre detective thriller and a horror brand. As it is set at the same time that Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein was written, and with Mary Shelley being a character in the series, it feels very real.”

Creators Benjamin Ross (The Young Poisoner’s Handbook) and Barry Langford (Torte Bluma) use the world of Shelley’s gothic classic as the backdrop for the series.

“Without wanting to give too much away, the series is, to an extent, set in the world of Mary Shelley’s book. It was a time when people were very interested in new science and body-snatching took place for medical research.

Those themes were fed into her work and we are set in that world,” Scoffield explained.

Frankenstein Chronicles hoping to return to Armagh



IF you were in Armagh last week you will have noticed the commotion caused by the filming of ITV's new period crime drama, 'The Frankenstein Chronicles.'
Incorporating elements from the investigative and horror genres and set in Georgian London in 1827, the show's lead character, Inspector John Marlott, played by Sean Bean, will be taken on a terrifying journey in pursuit of a chilling and diabolical foe.
The landscapes of Northern Ireland have, over the last few years, become synonymous with big budget productions but this is the first time Armagh city has been used as a location.
The cast and crew spent much of last week filming in and around Armagh's courthouse, the gaol and Russell street. They also spent two days at Gosford Castle in Markethill.


During the shoot the Ulster Gazette was invited to chat with the production team to find out just why they chose to film in Armagh city.
The show's Location Manager, Andrew Wilson, spoke highly of Armagh and it's 'fantastic' architecture.
“'For us, Armagh has always been a potential shooting location for various projects that we have and will be filming in Northern Ireland," said Andrew.
“The show will really show off the beauty of this city, we don't actually have to do very much to bring it back a couple of hundred years.
“When we were thinking about possible filming locations, we met with the council and the welcome we got from them was very encouraging.
“Filming here has been a very positive experience we would love to use Armagh as a set again, it has fantastic architecture.
“Working in any city provides challenges as roads have to be closed off, but to be honest, Armagh has been an absolute joy, the reception we have got from the people has been fantastic.

If this thing takes off as we hope it will, it can have fantastic ramifications for a place like Armagh and this show will hopefully be screened throughout the world.
“Hopefully there will be a second series, it's hard to know if we will be back with this production until we see the scripts but hopefully we will."
The show's Executive Producer, Tracey Scoffield expressed her delight with Armagh's Georgian buildings but also spoke honestly about the challenges filming in Northern Ireland presented for her team.
“We are filming the entire series in Northern Ireland and thankfully because of Armagh's unique architecture, a lot of our sets are real.


“It is a bit of a challenge filming in Northern Ireland, you have to find a window around Game of Thrones as they take up all the available production and support staff.
“As a consequence we started shooting in January. The weather has been our biggest challenge but what we have captured on camera so far looks fantastic.
“We hope to come back to Armagh, but that will depend on how the audience react to our show. If we have managed to create something the audience want to return to, it will mean we will more than likely be returning."

Tourists turned away as museum hosts film shoot for Frankenstein

Quote
It is usually one of the busiest days on the tourist calendar for Down County Museum, but yesterday public access to the historic building was prohibited.

The 18th century County Gaol in Downpatrick was securely sealed off from prying eyes as it was transformed into a production set for the filming of The Frankenstein Chronicles, starring Sean Bean.

Built in 1796, the former gaol provided the perfect location to shoot scenes for the highly anticipated six-part drama to be shown on ITV.

As news of the shoot filtered out, fans of the English actor, whose credits include Game of Thrones, The Lord of the Rings and Jupiter Ascending, turned up in the hope of catching a glimpse of the star.

But the building was securely cordoned off, much to their disappointment.

Competition For Drama Heats Up While Reality Recalibrates – MIPTV

Quote
For several international television markets now, the search has been on for the next big unscripted primetime show. That’s still the case, but the drumbeat has softened as significant competition is heating up in the drama space. Sales execs and buyers I’ve spoken to have a hard time pinpointing what the exact story of this Mip-TV will turn out to be, but drama is high on the Riviera.



 The Frankenstein Chronicles – in which star Sean Bean is not expected to die in the first season, I am assured – is another series that’s in play from the newly-christened Endemol Shine International.

And still not one damned mention on the local news despite all of the filming in so many locations, the upheaval of traffic and the closure of the museum over the Easter weekend.  I get that the BBC are far too up their own arses to lower themselves to the point of commenting on something ITV might be filming in the area but their remit is to report on ALL local news not just an edited version that suits them, and we licence payers fund their productions and keep them all in jobs so I am not a happy bunny having been monitoring all three broadcasts every day since he got there just in case there was anything to post.  And who is the slimy little git who decided they shouldn't comment on the filming - they need to go, never mind Clarkson.

Frankenstein prepares to move in to Northern Ireland village

Quote
Residents of a small village are bracing themselves for the arrival of Frankenstein at a 400-year-old castle on their doorsteps.

Galgorm on the outskirts of Ballymena, Co Antrim is better known for its lavish golf course and luxury hotel.

But this week it will be the setting for new big budget ITV series ‘The Frankenstein Chronicles’, starring Game of Thrones actor Sean Bean.

Galgorm Castle, which dates back to the early 1600s, has been chosen as one of the main filming locations for the horror show.

The cast and crew are expected to begin filming on Wednesday, with scenes staged in Galgorm for the next fortnight.

Bean plays Inspector John Marlott in the forthcoming series.

Yes they were filming Legends in April last year - he was in LA for his birthday.....  which is why I'm a bit confused about how it's all going to fit  - filming/editing etc in time for the scheduled transmission dates when he's still in Ireland and will be for the next couple of weeks as that takes him into the beginning of May.

Post by: Sable899 on April 21, 2015, 10:57:36 AM
They can easily cut it close since all of Sean's parts in Legends is set to shoot at locations in Europe. Its also highly likely that they are already shooting the LA portions of the series already. Remember, Martin is on the run and all the clues to his past point directly back to MI6.

Plus they can still film after the first eposide is shown and they are starting the show later this year on August 25th and it started August 13th last year.

Worldwide interest in Sean Bean’s city-shot ‘Frankenstein Chronicles’

Quote
It looks like ‘The Frankenstein Chronicles’ – much of which was filmed in Armagh in the spring – is set for global release!

The reimagining of Mary Shelley’s Gothic horror novel – starring Hollywood star Sean Bean – was filmed on location largely in the city; Vicars Hill, the Armagh Courthouse, Armagh Gaol and Gosford Forest Park were among the ideal backdrops for the six-part series.

 As he stands on the water’s edge contemplating the arrest of the smugglers, Marlott makes a shocking discovery. The body of a dead child is washed up on the shore and on further examination of the corpse he is horrified to discover it’s not actually a child but rather a crude assembly of body parts arranged in a grotesque parody of a human form.

The mutilated child-like body leaves an indelible impression on Marlott and he finds himself unable to shake off the memory of what has happened that fateful night.

With a formidable reputation as an investigator, he is known as a man who “doesn’t know the meaning of fear,” so it comes as no surprise when coldly efficient Peel, summons him insisting the “details of your investigation must remain confidential”.

And after what he’s witnessed, Marlott accepts the challenge to track the perpetrator of this heinous crime.

We follow him as he pursues the crazed killer behind the mutilated body. As he investigates, Marlott discovers that what he’s dealing with is more horrific than he could possibly have imagined.
 
It is expected to be shown here in the autumn.

CANAL+ acquires The Frankenstein Chronicles from Endemol Shine International

Quote
In Season One, we follow Marlott on the hunt for the killer behind this abomination, taking him into the dark corners of Georgian London, an underworld of prostitution, drug smuggling, bodysnatching, murder for profit and other vices.

As Marlott investigates, it brings him up against the medical establishment and powerful political forces wrestling with the march of scientific progress. One thing is certain – a demonic power is at work in the city, apparently attempting to reanimate the dead in a curious parody of the celebrated novel FRANKENSTEIN.
 Unable to shake the memory of what happened on the banks of the Thames but reluctant to admit the impossible, Marlott brings his enquiry to a dramatic conclusion. But in his moment of triumph, another horror is revealed which will change Marlott’s life forever.

Why are ITV showing The Frankenstein Chronicles on a pay only tv channel. The BBC would show something like that on BBC 1 or BBC 2. Shame on ITV.

 Will they ever show it on the normal channel

......Well seeing as ITV Encore doesn't rate particularly well, I suppose they will eventually if they want anyone to watch it.

A truly beautiful photo and funny to think that they spent so much time building such a beautiful set which was really only used in a couple of scenes (or even just that one - I get muddled with what I've read and what I've seen now) and that is the only time we see that side of it - the right hand side of the pool and the weirwood tree - in that shot, it was never shown in the series.  All that work ...

I like the cape! It is also historically accurate with the chain and everything.

Great garments - keep you dry, warm and can even function as bedding if need be.

The coats then often were cape coats - you know with 2 or even 3 short
capelets over the shoulders.

He's done enough historical drama that he should be able to work with a cape and not
over do it!

That cloak is very period correct. You will often hear them referred to as a "boat cloak", a very heavy, voluminous cloak that has been treated with a linseed oil/parafin or beeswax compound to make the fabric waterproof. They were extremely popular and very valuable to the camp followers and officers in Wellington's Peninsula army.

Okay, I just don't like the look of it - I have no doubt that it is warm, perfect to sleep in, accurate in period detail, and he looked fab in the one he wore in "Sharpe" - I'm just not a fan of this one; the chain or the colour - we all have our preferences!

Armagh’s Frankenstein fans will have to wait longer for Sean Bean drama
Quote
Armagh will have to wait a little bit longer than first envisaged for the hotly-anticipated ‘Frankenstein Chronicles’.

It had been expected that the six-part series – starring Hollywood actor Sean Bean – would get an autumn airing.

But it now seems the show, much of which was filmed in Armagh, will not hit our screens until 2016.

Last month Armagh I reported that the Frankenstein Chronicles – a reimagining of Mary Shelley’s gothic horror novel – looked set to get a global release.

And that certainly remains the case.

Our beautiful buildings will be seen around the world, after it was acquired by the French pay TV Canal+ from Endemol Shine International.

But the finishing touches have yet to be added to a show which is expected to target the US and other top global networks.

And there will be no ‘sneak peaks’ of the drama, as it is being kept closely under wraps until broadcast time.

Other that footage filmed by onlookers at the time during shooting at such local locations as Russell Street, Vicar’s Hill, Armagh Courthouse, Armagh Gaol and Gosford Forest Park, no official ‘teasers’ will go out until nearer the time.

A spokesperson for ITV confirmed to us it certainly will not be shown in the autumn, as had been hoped.

She told Armagh I: “We have no transmission date presently but that isn’t unusual when a drama is in post-production. The edit and grading process takes some months.”


Shooting started in Belfast in January before moving on to Armagh and concluded some months back.

The producers are ensuring a polished show with such wide interest expected.

“We’re anticipating transmission next year,” added the spokesperson.

As they say though, all good things…

Armagh-filmed Frankenstein Chronicles WILL be screened this year

Quote
It was famously said that a week is a long time in politics, but it seems that a lot more can be accomplished in the same timeframe in the world of showbiz!

Just six days ago Armagh I reported that the Armagh-shot ‘Frankenstein Chronicles’ would not be broadcast until 2016 at the earliest.

And that came straight from the horse’s mouth – or ITV if you’d prefer!

The broadcaster confirmed to Armagh I that the show was in post-production and, with such a global appeal, there appeared to be no mad rush in order to ensure the best results.

Indeed, we were told: “We have no transmission date presently but that isn’t unusual when a drama is in post-production. The edit and grading process takes some months.”

So imagine our surprise this evening when ITV drops us off another email to put a smile firmly on our – and hopefully your own – faces!

It seems that the six-parter – helmed by Hollywood star Sean Bean – will now go out within months!

Great news!


“The series has now been scheduled for late autumn 2015,” an ITV spokesperson informs Armagh I.



The drama was shot earlier this year at local locations which included Russell Street, Vicar’s Hill, Armagh Courthouse, Armagh Gaol and Gosford Forest Park.

We are just delighted that we are getting closer to broadcast.

And, given that it’s described as a reimagining of Mary Shelley’s gothic horror novel, it seems perfectly timed for transmission as the darker nights draw in!

If its like other 6-parters like Sherlock and Whitechapel they will be between 60 and 90 minutes each. Slightly longer than your usual one-hour drama series which run around 42 minutes per episode. Sharpe was similar with each episode being divided into two parts. I imagine this one will be in the same category.

The Frankenstein Chronicles
ITV’s post-Downton drama strategy seems to include a detour into the 19th century fiction library that has previously been most visited by the BBC. With a new Jekyll and Hyde adaptation elsewhere in the schedules, The Frankenstein Chronicles is a six-parter that plays with Mary Shelley’s original in the way that Showtime’s Penny Dreadful used literary archetypes. Sean Bean plays a Peeler in 1837 London who is called to a body washed up from the Thames that turns out to be a pseudo-human stitched together from cadaver parts. The show aims to tie together the audiences for crime and horror

The Cannes event, which runs 3-8 October, has eight high-profile screenings with shows including the world premieres of The X-Files reboot and Sky Atlantic’s The Last Panthers.

Eight screenings is more than any year since it launched premieres in 2010.

In addition to the 20 Century Fox-distributed The X-Files and Sky and Canal+ co-production Last Panthers, the market will screen Endemol Shine International’s British drama Frankenstein Chronicles....

Produced by Rainmark Films and distributed by Endemol Shine International, the six-part series is a reimagining of the Frankenstein myth set in London in the 19th century.

The Frankenstein Chronicles was created by Emmy nominated director and writer Benjamin Ross (The Young Poisoner’s Handbook), who also directed all six episodes, and writer Barry Langford (Torte Bluma).

“The Frankenstein Chronicles uniquely merges classic elements from both the crime and horror genres, which pairs perfectly with A&E’s growing scripted slate,” said Elaine Frontain Bryant, the executive VP of programming for A&E. “We’re excited to be partnering with Endemol Shine to bring this intriguing and sophisticated series to American audiences.”

WANNABE actors who audition to appear in a new Frankenstein TV series have been told they mustn't be scared to get their kit off.

A call went out from casting agency Extras NI last week for confident men to be Sean Bean's body double in The Frankenstein Chronicles currently shooting in Northern Ireland.

But to be in with a chance of stepping into the shoes of the Game of Thrones star, who played Lord Eddard Stark in the series, the hopefuls were warned they might be required to bare all.

And to prove they would be comfortable in their birthday suits, those vying for the stand-in role have been asked to submit a sexy selfie - wearing just their underwear.

A text sent around to potential body doubles read: "We are currently casting a male to be a double/stand in for the TV series The Frankenstein Chronicles. The role will potentially involve nudity so you must be comfortable with this.

"Please attach a full-length photo of yourself in either underwear or briefs."

END results. :mutley: Sean is being paid by the day and they may need some extra shoots of Sean's character
in bed, but the budgets NOT big enough to paid him for the time. So they hire a cheaper actor for those shots.
This is a very common practice in Hollywood.

Yeah, I know.  Post production is a minefield; the time to discover you didn't quite get a shot right, or not enough of a shot, or there's something wrong with what you have got,  and the principal cast are no longer available to tidy up the mess so you have doubles - I don't have a problem with that at all, usually, but if it's any old dude's wrinkled ass I want to see then it's his not someone else, just sayin'!  I don't care if it's drooped to the floor, still want to see his!

Hello all - I am new and I am extremely grateful that a lot of BBC and ITV shows seem to show up on Netflix in America eventually - just requires an extraordinary amount of patience ...which I tend to lack! But at least it's hope.

 He looks so great in that Frankenstein poster - Sean is at his best in period costume in my opinion.

The only reason to watch Legends was for Sean. The rest of the cast and the writing was pretty weak. He was mesmerizing and impressed me with the way he can switch up the accent now. I remember the first time I heard him do an American accent and I cringed. But, I also think I personally ONLY want to hear his Yorkshire accent or even the RP accent. Everything else just seems "wrong" somehow - LOL! No fault to him or his talent at all - just my "ear lust" speaking out here. I hope the revamped 2nd season is better!

I was almost going to agree with you unequivocally, but then I remembered Extremely Dangerous, one of my favourites.  But he is excellent in period dramas.

Frankenstein As London Serial Killer On A&E

Quote
The suggestion for the idea of the Baron Frankenstein as London serial killer likely comes from a fairly brief section in the Mary Shelley novel where the monster of his creation has demanded that the student-scientist Frankenstein create a mate for him, and while on his travels, stopping in London, Frankenstein mentions that he attempted to gather “the materials” necessary for this task. In the novel, this effort is not detailed, but obviously in this case “materials” to create a female version of his creature would require body parts, and female parts in particular, with prostitutes the most handy of fresh subjects, combining a bit of Jack the Ripper with the Frankenstein mythos.

The body Inspector Marlott finds in the river is a small one, like a child, so the suggestion might be that Frankenstein is trying to create a family for the monster which rules him, or perhaps a replacement for his own son, murdered by the monster. We have likely a whole series of clues to follow before the revelation. Police “Inspectors” didn’t quite yet investigate crimes in Georgian London, with an organized police force not appearing until Victoria ascended the throne, but perhaps that will be part of the Frankenstein Chronicles story. It is unclear at this point whether this will be a one-off series, or more misadventures are intended, but with Sean Bean’s habit of getting killed-off too soon, maybe it’s just the six-parts.

The crime drama also stars Anna Maxwell Martin, Charlie Creed-Miles, Ed Stoppard, Elliot Cowan, Hugh O’Conor, and Kate Dickie. An air-date has not been set.

A&E Networks bypasses ‘X-Files’ and ‘The Last Panther’ for city shot drama

Quote
One of North America’s leading television networks has snapped up the Armagh-filmed ‘Frankenstein Chronicles’ this week – giving hopes of an economic and tourism boost to the district after airing.

As Armagh I exclusively revealed in July, the show -a reimagining of Mary Shelley’s gothic horror, starring Sean Bean and featuring much of our beautiful city as a backdrop – was to be offered for sale worldwide, giving a huge potential global audience.

And that potential has not only been realised but exceeded all expectations!

This week, MIPCOM – the TV industry’s premiere ‘buying’ event in Cannes in France – welcomed a record number of over 13,700 delegates from 108 countries.

That included more than 4,800 acquisition executives, including the Arts & Entertainment Networks – or A&E for short.

Highlights included the unveiling by Sky Atlantic/Canal Plus of the hugely anticipated ‘The Last Panther’.

And the world premiere of ‘The X-Files’ reboot was also met with huge interest.

But A&E – which is headquartered in New York and tags itself with the catchline ‘Be Original’ – bypassed all in favour of the Frankenstein Chronicles.

The American cable and satellite TV channel broadcasts coast to coast in the United States and across Canada.

In fact, it now reaches close to one billion homes (96 million if you want to be precise!).

Depending on the popularity of the show – and it is already being hotly tipped – such a major coup could provide a fantastic spin-off.

A MIPCOM source told Armagh I: “This event is in its 31st year and every year it’s a who’s who and what’s hot and what’s not of TV. Shows can be made or broken here. It really is that simple.

“A big backer on board, willing to spend this amount of money on your show, shows real faith. If you hook the right audience the potential is huge. Fans very often want to visit sets, want to see the locations. It’s not all about the drama and what’s there, it’s about everything, the whole package.

The acquisition by A&E will also give hope that the Frankenstein Chronicles could see a second series commissioned.

And, if that happens, it would be hoped that filming would return to Armagh.

ITV, meanwhile, has no confirmed date as yet for screening here, but confirmed to Armagh I in August it was “now scheduled for late autumn 2015”.

The Frankenstein Chronicles, ITV Encore, Sean Bean

Quote
Georgian London is brought thrillingly to life as Sean Bean hunts a ghastly foe

With Sean Bean heading a cast that includes Anna Maxwell Martin as Shelley and Steven Berkoff as William Blake, it’s a six-parter that rises above your average shock fest or cop procedural. With its well-worked background themes of bodysnatching and abandoned children, the writers have stitched together a story with heart as well as a brain.

Sean Bean is terrific as the investigator Marlott

The year is 1827 and the setting is switched from Switzerland to London. Bean’s Inspector John Marlott is working undercover on the Thames trying to catch opium smugglers when his men discover an ‘abomination’ in the muddy foreshore – a body made from the pieces of eight children.

Home Secretary Sir Robert Peel (Tom Ward) is none too delighted when Marlott brings the ‘object’ to the attention of the authorities. The politician fears it is the fiendish work of opponents of the Anatomy Act, which aims to regulate the practice of surgery and remove the barbers and bodysnatchers that give it a bad name. He wants Marlott to expose the perpetrator of this heinous crime, telling him that ‘details of your investigation must remain confidential’.

Sean Bean, who has just finished a stint in the US series Legends, is suitably craggy and deferential as the investigator who is low on the social ladder and has a hellish job on his hands. As he tries to piece together any leads he can about the poor children that may have been used to create the body in the river, he hears tales of kids abducted by a monster around Smithfield meat market.

Dank, shadowy, with great CGI

He is also a deeply compromised protagonist, telling the parents of one missing girl, ‘I know what it is to grieve.’ He has syphilis and has lost his own family.

The production looks splendidly dank and shadowy, and the digital work does wonders in recreating landmarks such as Greenwich as seen from a misty, muddy Thames.

Where series such as The Tudors offered a kitsch pantomime version of history, the creators of The Frankenstein Chronicles are clearly fascinated by the Georgian period and use it intelligently in this narrative. And it’s suitably creepy, too.

Episode 1 - World without God

London 1827: River Thames at night - a smuggling operation is underway – suddenly, a river police launch is bearing down on the smugglers and a fight breaks out, followed by a furious chase to the shore.

John Marlott, a senior river police officer and veteran of the Battle of Waterloo, paces the shoreline of the Thames reviewing the aftermath.  A sharp police whistle draws his attention towards a small shape lying at the waters edge.  As he approaches he sees it is the body of a child, a young girl around 10 years of age.  Her body is covered in crude sutures, and is a horrifying sight.  He reaches down to touch the dead hand – but in a moment of terror, the hand grabs him back!

The dreadful corpse is brought to the urgent attention of the Home Secretary, Sir Robert Peel, who summons Marlott, and tells him that he wants him to undertake a private investigation. The leading surgeon at St Bart’s hospital in Smithfield, Sir William Chester, tells Marlott that the corpse was made up of seven or eight bodies stitched together. 

Marlott is put to work within the offices of the Bow Street Runners, and recruits an optimistic young runner, Nightingale, to assist him. Marlott’s attention is then drawn towards a slum dwelling where criminal Billy Oates masterminds his gang of child criminals.  There he discovers a young girl Flora.  He also finds a painting on the wall.  It is “Little Girl Lost” by the artist William Blake – Marlott resolves to investigate further.

The Frankenstein Chronicles, ITV

 Olly Grant hears how the team behind ITV Encore’s detective spin on Mary Shelley’s Gothic masterpiece recreated 1920s London across 40 Northern Ireland locations
Quote
Crouched over a dissection table in a Gothic-looking castle cellar, Benjamin Ross is having an honesty moment. “Let’s face it,” he says. “Who needs another Frankenstein?” Given that the writer/director had spent the past few years working on a series with Frankenstein in the title, and that the table in front of us was covered in rubber body parts, this seemed surprising. Lift the bonnet on his show, however, and you can see where he’s coming from.

The Frankenstein Chronicles is a six-part crime drama starring Sean Bean. It’s an unusual confection of genres: horror-meets-detective-show-meets-period-thriller, with Bean as a Georgian sleuth on the trail of a macabre crime. The body of a young girl has been discovered in the Thames, but on closer inspection seems to have been stitched together from body parts.

Real history underpins the horror elements, from cameos (albeit fictionalised) from Mary Shelley (Anna Maxwell Martin) and William Blake (Steven Berkoff) to electrical experiments on dead flesh; and from contemporary social issues like ‘resurrectionism’ (bodysnatching) to the decline of religious faith. The whole thing is couched with gritty social realism – a concept that was there from the start, says Ross, who co-created, wrote and directed all six episodes.

“It all started with Sarah Wise’s history book The Italian Boy – a true story about grave robbers, murderers and police work in 1830s London,” he says. “It was a very interesting story and I was exploring the possibility of an adaptation. It turned out several people had already tried, but it wasn’t flying.

“As I was reading, two ideas occurred to me: that you could do Frankenstein, but with an emphasis on social history; and that you could do it as a detective story – telling it from the outside in rather than the inside out, like a whodunit.”

While Chronicles is set in 1820s London, the series was shot entirely on location in Northern Ireland. Game Of Thrones casts an inevitable shadow – in today’s venue, Gosford Castle in Armagh, you can still see traces of Littlefinger’s brothel in the room in which the monitors are parked.

Locating here was partly down to Rainmark Films exec producer Frank Doelger – like Bean, a Thrones alumnus who knows Belfast well – alongside the usual financial equation of lower costs plus high-end TV tax break, with support from NI Screen.

But familiarity and cash weren’t the only reasons for the move. “London in 1827 was not the same as the Victorian London that people are used to seeing,” explains fellow exec producer Tracey Scoffield, the former BBC Films exec who set up Rainmark with Doelger in 2005. “This is a city that was much smaller and surrounded by rural villages – one of our scenes has the characters travelling down country lanes to the city from Stoke Newington – and you can achieve that here in a way that you can’t in modern London.”

They managed it with some impressive country-hopping, too – a total of 120 sets across 40 different venues, according to production designer Ashleigh Jeffers. “That’s more than I’ve ever done in one go,” says the former Thrones art director.

One of the beauties of shooting in Northern Ireland – alongside the huge diversity of landscapes within ready access of Belfast – is its relative lack of overdevelopment. Unprimped period buildings pop up in unlikely places.

One key location was Galgorm Manor, near Ballymena. “We just hit upon it by accident,” says Jeffers, who helped scout some of the venues with locations manager Andrew Wilson.

“We were driving one day in December when the light was fading fast and we did a double-take as we passed – so we did a cold call. Here was a Georgian house with its old sash windows still intact, which is a rare thing these days. We were able to get three parts of our story out of that, including some early scenes set in the famous Rookery slums.”

Location-only shooting
Jeffers also reconstructed the House of Commons in the wood-panelled hall of Belfast’s Campbell College public school, one of writer CS Lewis’s alma maters. Other locations include the National Trust’s Temple of the Winds tower at Mount Stewart and Greyabbey House in County Down.

One advantage of a location-only shoot is that it avoids the repetition intrinsic to some TV serials.

“Obviously, having a central exterior location is very helpful if you have a precinct drama, be it Call The Midwife or Ripper Street,” she says. “But when the audience sees that same location turning up week after week, it can feel a bit reductive. We’ve managed to avoid that by having a very large number of locations to create a coherent London.”

Ultimately, Scoffield is confident they have achieved something visually and thematically fresh with Chronicles; the time-worn monster trope smartly resurrected.

“I think this is a really commercial idea, but an intelligent one too,” she says. “It has some quite serious themes in it – as indeed did Shelley’s novel. It’s not just a silly fantasy – it’s a serious piece of work.”


Frankenstein Chronicles: Artistic Inspiration

The gritty realism that underpins the look and themes of The Frankenstein Chronicles was present in the lighting too.

Director of photography Ian Moss, who started his career with Stanley Kubrick on horror classic The Shining, is a fan of naturalistic shooting – he lit a recent episode of ITV’s The Suspicions Of Mr Whicher using virtually nothing but candles and oil lamps.

His main visual inspiration for Chronicles was the painter Yoshio Markino, who specialised in aqueous London street scenes around the turn of the 20th century.

“There’s a wonderful delicacy in his paintings – he used to wet down his canvases and paint while they were still damp to give this very effective fogginess, and I wanted to emulate that,” says Moss.

The new Vantage One T1 lenses operated happily in ultra-low light while providing a strikingly “beautiful close focus” – though his focus puller, Andy Gardner, may not have thanked him for the extra work.

“With this lens, the cornea of an eye will be sharp, but not the eyelashes,” says Moss. “Then you’ve got all the movement of the camera on top. It was a nightmare for Andy.”

Moss also drenched the interiors with artificial smoke to help refract natural light. Finally, he went through an estimated 25,000 candles, imported from France.

“They’re made from beeswax with a derivative of petroleum, which gives off a lot more smoke,” he explains. “That’s on top of the smoke I’d be putting into these locations as well. It was very difficult for the cast and crew to work with. I had quite a few technicians coming up to me saying ‘Thanks very much for using those candles’, as they evacuated a tonne of soot and grime from their noses.”

This is one for the edge of the seat - a re-imagining of the Frankenstein story

Get ready for a brand new and exclusive series starting on Wednesday 11th November on ITV Encore starring Sean Bean as Inspector John Marlott, a fearless detective on the hunt for a crazed killer through the dark recesses of London.
 This is a thrilling and terrifying re-imagining of the Frankenstein myth as a six-part period crime drama set in Georgian London in 1827, with Marlott making a shocking discovery.
The body of a dead child is washed up on the shore and on further examination of the corpse, he is horrified to discover it’s not actually a child but rather a crude assembly of body parts arranged in a grotesque parody of a human form.

ITV reveal more details on The Frankenstein Chronicles

Quote
The series has been written and directed by Benjamin Ross

 “The really good thing about this is that I’ve never shot anything where we’ve been in so many locations, so many fantastic panoramic sets that are real. No studio work, it’s just been travelling every day to a castle or an abbey or cellars underground, cobbled streets. It’s quite astounding and it’s very ambitious to try and do that but it worked really well and it really gives you that expanse of London and things going on above ground and under ground and in back streets, everywhere.

“You feel it’s a really thriving hotch potch of different people, different nationalities and different religions. It was such a volatile time and I think [Benjamin Ross] has captured that beautifully.” – Sean Bean

 “I think the thing that will interest audiences about the London of this period is that it’s not Victorian, it’s  pre‐Victorian.  Audiences have grown very familiar with London in Victorian times. This is a London that was still a very small town. It was  pre‐industrial and a lot of it was still medieval in terms of its architecture and in terms of its life. The outskirts of London, which we now think of as the suburbs, were villages. A lot of our story looks quite rural.” – Executive Producer Tracey Scoffield.

ITV seem to be less than helpful - full stop.

They've set up this 'Encore' channel which is subscription only. As far as I can see, hardly anyone has had access to it although it is now being made available via Sky (not much help to me as I don't have pay for TV, only the free channels). 

Even old programmes on ITV (like previous episodes of a series that you may have missed) are charged for if you try and access via their ITV player  (unlike the BBCiplayer).

I have a horrible suspicion that viewing figures are going to be on the low side if they don't show this on terrestial ITV after a short interval.

Yes. Or if they don't put it on some platform that you can buy it.

I THOUGHT that I found a page a few days ago on the ITV website that indicated (wasn't all that clear to me) that it would be able to be watched at the same time it is aired for free. On their player. However, now I cannot find the webpage, and have since realised there are like 5 associated sites for ITV. I have no idea where I was. Grrrr. And from what you've written, Annie, I misunderstood anyway. :(

Sean Bean shines in the dark, grimy but absorbing The Frankenstein Chronicles

Quote
“This isn’t a talk bloke with bolts in his head wandering around with his arms extended in front of him,” actor Ed Stoppard said at the press screening of the first episode of The Frankenstein Chronicles.

No, that is true. But The Frankenstein Chronicles does have Sean Bean, and for that we should be thankful.

The legendary Yorkshireman is the star copper of this beguiling and very dark period drama, which takes as its inspiration Mary Shelley’s Gothic classic about the fictional monster, whom Stoppard (who plays shady politico Daniel Hervey) described so eloquently.

Bean is an actor I have always admired. Often mocked by people who should know better, he can carry a show by himself and performs most people off the screen. His John Marlott is gruff, pained, sensitive, fair and decent. A real hero.

It’s London 1827 and bodies of children stitched together keep washing up on the shore. Who is behind it? Is it, as Tom Ward’s gruff home secretary Sir Robert Peel suspects, a conspiracy to blacken the new art of surgery? Or is it, as Bean’s Marlott believes, something even more sinister? Whatever the answer, Marlott is on the case.

This is a brave drama for ITV Encore to show so late at night. It’s slow, grisly, and probably won’t get many viewers, but it’s certainly bold.

Frankenstein author Mary Shelley will appear in later episodes, as will William Blake as himself (I am not sure what the Romantic poet and author of Songs of Innocence and Experience will have to offer, but time will tell.)

Full marks too for some intriguing colour-blind casting – Marlott's partner is Nightingale, played with understated aplomb by black actor Richie Campbell (there is no evidence that London's first police force had anything other than white officers).

And it’s quite funny to see them follow the tropes of modern cop shows in some of their procedural ticks. At one point they meet up not in a pub (a la Morse et al) but in a Regency Coffee House. Well, you would wouldn’t you?

The imagery is bleak, windswept and will require a tough stomach to watch. As for the villain Billy Oates (Robie Gee) we meet in episode one? He is quite a brute.

The show is also, like the bolt-headed stereotype, quite slow. But not slow enough that I won't shuffle on to episode two.

The Frankenstein Chronicles - A World Without God - Advance Preview + Dialogue Teasers

Quote
New period crime drama, The Frankenstein Chronicles, starts Wednesday 11th November on ITV Encore at 10pm, and later in the year on A&E. Starring Sean Bean as John Marlott, a senior river police officer and veteran of the Battle of Waterloo, who is caught up in a ghoulish mystery after discovering the body of a child on the banks of the Thames. The corpse is covered in grotesque stitches, and when he reaches down to touch the young girl’s hand, it reaches out and grabs his first!

Sean Bean is superb as Marlott, a man soldiering on despite his guilty secret and painful past, striving for the underdog to have their justice and keeping the peace. The episode takes it’s time setting up the story, there’s no fast paced action here, but you will find yourself being drawn in to the plot as it delves deeper and probes the character’s oddities and quirks. The atmosphere and setting is gloriously English Gothic, with smoggy lanes, street urchins running amok through market places and plenty of dismembered bodies turning up on dissecting tables.

 All in all it’s a solid start to what promises to be a fresh look at the Frankenstein legend, with the promo at the end giving a taster of what’s to come, including the great Mary Shelley herself putting in an appearance. It does feel as though it should be Sunday evening show as opposed to a middle of the week affair, but let’s be real, Sean Bean is a welcome site on my TV any day of the week!

Here are a few dialogue teasers for the opening episode, A World Without God. to whet your appetite:

Richie Campbell Drops Some Wise Words With TBB Ahead of ‘The Frankenstein Chronicles’ Premiere Tonight 10pm on ITV Encore

Quote
Richie Campbell is an interesting young actor who has taken on a wide range of roles on both screen and stage. He read communications and cultural studies at Goldsmith’s and, as a result, thinks quite deeply about his craft. On Wednesday 11th of November 2015, all of his years of hard work should pay dividends, as he takes on a co-starring role alongside acting legend Sean Bean in a lavish gothic drama premiering on ITV Encore (Sky channel 123). It is a truly momentous occasion, since not only is the first episode airing in all Everyman cinemas, but the roles he and fellow recurring cast-member Robbie Gee have taken on could signal a sea of change in independent television casting…

We’re doing press… and obviously, they’re selling the show on Sean Bean – he’s a big star. But, I just thought it’s bad because… none of our people know about the show. I’ve been a part of all those debates where people are saying, “All we have is ‘Top Boy’!” and I was a part of all that [too]…How there’s no black people in period dramas, and now when I’m doing something [set] in 1827, no-one seems to be on it!

The Frankenstein Chronicles
10pm, ITV Encore

Big names gather in misty old London for this gory drama. It’s the 19th century and Inspector John Marlott (Sean Bean) hits the trail of the legendary Frankenstein after he finds what he thinks is the body of a child. The truth is worse: it’s a monster of a corpse stitched together from a variety of body parts. The fearless investigator wades through a world of syphilis, urchin children and a dimly lit Smithfield Market as he searches London for clues to help him crack the crime. Chilling from the start.

The real Frankenstein Chronicles: Bodysnatching and reanimating the dead in 19th-century England

Quote
The days are getting shorter, our pyjamas are getting longer and the last echoes of fireworks have reverberated from London's rooftops. It's therefore the perfect time to cosy up to an atmospheric Gothic drama via candlelight, such as Sean Bean's new series The Frankenstein Chronicles. The six-part drama, beginning on Wednesday, 11 November on ITV Encore, has been described as "a thrilling and terrifying reimagining of the Frankenstein Myth set in 19th century London".

Bean plays Inspector John Marlott called in to investigate a series of crimes in the Victorian metropolis, which may have been committed by a scientist intent on reanimating corpses. As a result it focuses on the dark and disturbing history of Victorian body snatchers and the dissection of the dead. The insinuation is that the antagonist of the chronicles is perhaps Victor Frankenstein himself, or a protege of his methods.

The series states that its vision is to "Bring Mary Shelley's Frankenstein back to life" (I wonder if the pun was intended?) and will do so via both the investigative and horror genres.

The original Frankenstein; or The Modern Prometheus was penned by Mary Shelley when she was only 18 years old and published when she was 20. The idea for the story famously came to her in a waking dream during her stay in Geneva's Villa Diodati with her then lover (and later husband) Percy Bysshe Shelley. Lord Byron, John Polidori and Mary's stepsister Claire Clairmont were also present. Frankenstein was published in London in 1818 and is now known as the first real work of science fiction ... and yet the concept does have its roots in fact.

My agent put me up for it, the casting director has cast me for a couple of other things and I think he thought I was right for it. . .  My breakdown said, “Young, white guy playing alongside Sean Bean, very Sean Bean-esque.”
What? His character is supposed to be Sean Bean-esque? Sean Bean's character is?

Quote
Of course, I have to ask about Sean Bean… the most important thing I need to know is, does he use his Yorkshire accent, or is he going to actually try and put on a London accent? Have they made him from ‘up North’...? Spill the beans! Embargo or not, we have to know!!

Well, because the trailers are out now, I can’t even lie for him! But, he uses his Yorkshire accent.

He has just become Sean Connery, hasn’t he! It must be the name Sean…

This is it… because the setting is London 1827 and there’s a type of vernacular that everyone uses… Now, I’m very London – I’m not ‘street’, but I’ve got a twang. I remember the director saying, “Yeah, we’re gonna have to lose certain things….” My [speaking] voice is quite specific as well, people take the [mick] out of me when I say ‘like’ and ‘why’ and I elongate certain words… so, I was like, “cool, we’re gonna have to knuckle down and do this…” We had a day when we were all supposed to get together to rehearse but it didn’t take place. On-set was the first time we actually worked together properly and I was trying to pronounce my ‘t’s correctly, and he was flinging out the Yorkshire accent… I was like, whoa! OK! Maybe I don’t have to do this!

I know who Sean Connery is, but I don't get the reference. What does it mean?

‘The Frankenstein Chronicles’ episode guide

Quote
Episode 2: ‘Seeing Things’

Wednesday 18 November 2015, 10pm

Marlott visits the house of artist and printmaker William Blake who is on his deathbed, but he receives Marlott as a prophet of things to come.

Marlott confers with Nightingale who has been keeping watch on a public house, The Fortune of War, which is situated opposite St Barts hospital in Smithfield.  This is where the body snatchers gather, along with their “goods” which they sell at the hospital.  Marlott identifies one body snatcher, Pritty, as potentially helpful, and he and Nightingale set up a cunning ‘sting’ which brings him into their service.

Pritty is most indignant; body snatching is not illegal.  He considers himself to be a businessman and hotly denies anything to do with the sutured child – though he does know of a gang who might not shrink at darker acts.  Marlott charges him to arrange a meeting with them.

Marlott is visited by a Lady Hervey, a beautiful and fervent aristocrat – and a devoted Christian.  She passionately opposes the Anatomy Act because she believes it will lead to a world without God.  She begs Marlott to do whatever he can to stop the act being passed.

 Marlott attends an anatomy lecture at St Barts, given by Garnet Chester the flamboyant cousin of Sir William, who performs a galvanizing experiment on a young corpse.  As the dead arm twitches to a sensational response from the students, the lecture is disrupted by anti Anatomy Act supporters.

Marlott follows them to a public debate being conducted by a powerful MP, Bentley Warburton, who attempts to rouse the poor about the horrors of public dissection and urges them to demonstrate about the coming Anatomy Act.

A curious eye meets Marlott’s – young journalist Boz is writing a story about the coming act and Marlott quizzes him. Boz sets his sights on unraveling the secrets behind Marlott’s quest.

SB said this about the look of it (and I agree), "He’s also very talented and has really got a vision and an eye for different lenses and different camera moves, to create this incredibly suspenseful atmosphere. They look like pictures, like Caravaggio paintings, they’re so beautiful."

I saw it at an (almost empty, can you believe it, half a mile from SB's own home ... !) screening in North London. I loved it - SB was on great if familiar form and suggested lots of emotional depths behind a gritty northern exterior etc etc etc. The cinematography was particularly impressive and of course, as there always is in anything set in the 19th century, a great deal of FOG. The only thing that niggled me was that it was so obviously not filmed anywhere near the Thames or London. The colour of the stone, the countryside, the river, the light ...even if I hadn't known it was filmed in northern Ireland, it would have seemed that everything about the landscape was wrong.

But hey ho ... willing suspension of disbelief and all that. I'll certainly be tuning in, if I can find it, to episode 2.

Frankenstein TV: what happens when literary classics drop out of copyright

Quote
The Frankenstein Chronicles, Jekyll and Hyde, BBC’s forthcoming series Dickensian and of course Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock are the latest dramas to rework familiar characters into new settings
The credits of television shows end with a copyright line, once in Roman numerals – widely believed to have been a device to stop viewers who were not Latin-literate from realising they were watching a repeat – but now generally using Arabic numbers.

In several current TV shows, though, this ownership note is not the whole story. The Frankenstein Chronicles, which started last night on ITV Encore, is the latest drama that uses out-of-copyright literary characters in a new interpretation or setting, following on from Penny Dreadful and the current ITV Jekyll and Hyde, with the trend about to be extended by BBC1’s Dickensian.

It still feels strange to find new material on ITV Encore, which has the sound and feel of a repeats channel – and the presence of The Frankenstein Chronicles inevitably looks like being dropped to the reserves – but the network is an appropriate home for a show that gives a second hearing and round of applause to Mary Shelley’s 1818 story of a scientist who galvanises life from dead body parts.

Series creator Benjamin Ross has – again fittingly – stitched together a new plot from bits of the original, with Sean Bean, playing one of Sir Robert Peel’s first cops in 1827 London, investigating the origins of a strange human form that washes up from the Thames. This twist keeps the series clear of Penny Dreadful, in which show-runner John Logan employs a recognisably Shelleyesque version of the monster and his begetter Dr Victor Frankenstein among the borrowed characters interacting in Victorian London.

 The Frankenstein Chronicles    10:00pm, Wednesday, 18 November 2015
Quote

Who is snatching children, robbing graves and doing ghastly experiments? Perturbed policeman Marlott's (Sean Bean) investigations continue this week and take him across the path of several characters plucked from reality, including William Blake (Steven Berkoff), newspaper reporter Boz (otherwise known as Charles Dickens) and the supremely unfriendly Mary Shelley (Anna Maxwell Martin), who happens to have written a controversial new novel… Deliciously creepy – and Bean is great as the everyman in a strange world.

That was interesting.

"I kinda wish that ITV had had the guts to give this a proper run on ITV1 so perhaps they might yet but it deserves better than to be tucked away on ITV Encore... the should have given it a mainstream run, prime-time, 9 p.m., ITV." 

Yes. I saw lots of comments by very irritated FaceBookers who couldn't see it on Sky.

"...the very charismatic Sean Bean who must surely be a draw..."
"...He's very magnetic and you can't keep your eyes off him."

Poor Inspector Marlott (Sean Bean). He's still trying to find out who's been stealing corpses and stitching body parts together, so when he comes across Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, filled with grisly details that sound eerily similar to his case, he decides to go and have a friendly chat. Alas, the furious author (Anna Maxwell Martin) gives him short shrift when he pops in, claiming a nightmare provoked by a life filled with tragedy was the sole inspiration for her book. Elsewhere, Nightingaletracks down shifty body-seller Pritty (Charlie Creed-Miles, Peaky Blinders), and a troubled Marlott has an unsettling encounter with Lord Harvey

Flora has returned to Marlott’s lodgings, but now she is back Marlott intends to use her as bait for the murderous gang, much against Nightingale’s wishes.

The Frankenstein Chronicles  10:00pm, Wednesday, 2 December 2015,ITV Encore

Quote
Inspector Marlott’s investigation into the grisly goings-on takes a terrifying turn this week as he ropes bodyseller Pritty (Charlie Creed-Miles, Peaky Blinders) into helping him follow up a decidedly dangerous lead. Meanwhile, Flora is still in peril, and Marlott and Nightingale come to a serious disagreement as to how to handle things. There are suspects and shady types aplenty in this splendidly spooky drama, but can Marlott solve the mystery before more hideous deaths occur?

The Frankenstein Chronicles - The Frankenstein Murders - Advance Preview, Dialogue Teasers + Photos

Quote
The fifth episode of period crime drama, The Frankenstein Chronicles, continues on ITV Encore at 10pm on 9th December. Bow Street copper John Marlott is no closer to uncovering who is behind the child killings, so this week sees him returning to Greenwich, back where it all began. Could the visions of his drowned wife be a sign of something more than his diseased mind haunting him, is there a vital clue missing from where the first body found its way into the Thames?

Mary Shelley is following her own lines of enquiry too. That old laboratory we saw last week holds a grisly past, which we will see unfolding during flashbacks as she conducts her investigation into Sir William Chester’s current practices. She may have taken on more than she can manage alone however as the surgeon has no qualms when it comes to being a tad chauvinistic in his attitude towards women at times - which appears to be a trait runs in the family because his cousin is a bit of a sleaze ball too.

The front page exclusive that Boz has penned, The Frankenstein Murders, which angers Sir Robert sufficiently enough to pull Marlott from the case, does at least bring Shelley knocking on his door. Although he is no longer officially working for the government, her dark secrets do compel him to dig deeper into the mystery in his own time and start to unravel some of the leads. This simply isn’t an incident that he can leave unsolved.

 Sean Bean hasn’t had much in the romance stakes so far in this series, fond daydreams of his dearly departed wife aside, but there’s a cheeky liaison this week that gets his heart a pumping a mite faster. Not that he can allow this flirtation to proceed too far as yet, that syphilitic sore on his hand is hanging over his head like the sword of Damocles. Plus I can't say that trust this particular person myself, it wouldn’t surprise me if there were ulterior motives at play behind her mask of concern and enthusiasm in helping with the case. Then again, with the twists and turns some characters make throughout this episode it’s difficult to decide what anyone’s true game is yet…

BBC First stellar line up for 2016 headed by epic adaptation of War and Peace

Quote
Drama fans have a lot to look forward to on BBC First next year as the channel unveils details of some of the big titles and stellar stars who will be hitting the screen in 2016.



The Frankenstein Chronicles is a thrilling crime drama, a terrifying re-imagining of Mary Shelley’s classic novel from the point of view of a detective on the trail of demonic experiments. The series stars multi-award winning Sean Bean (Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings) as police investigator John Marlott investigating a series of crimes in 19th Century London, which may have been committed by a scientist intent on re-animating the dead.

The Frankenstein Chronicles Series    1 - 6. Lost and Found  today 10pm - 11:05pm ITV Encore

Quote
The final episode of a lurid tale has a few meaty gothic touches to keep connoisseurs happy – lowering clouds, a tower where evil deeds are done, a ruined abbey, cawing rooks and a dash of Bach’s dramatic Toccata and Fugue in D Minor.

Poor syphilitic detective John Marlott (Sean Bean) can’t persuade anyone to listen to him when he names the murderous Frankenstein-apeing culprit, the unstoppable mad man responsible for the abominable practice of bringing the dead back to life. There’s an establishment cover-up and John is friendless and without allies. Even his sidekick Nightingale deserts him.
 
6/6. When Marlott finally pieces together the movement of bodies at St Bart's Hospital, numerous suspects continue to plague his mind. Sensing that he is getting perilously close to solving the mystery, he seeks authorisation for a pistol. Meanwhile, Sir Robert Peel meets Sir William Chester at the hospital. Conclusion of the period crime drama set in London in 1827, starring Sean Bean. Last in the series.

The Frankenstein Chronicles - Episode 6 (Series Finale) - Advance Preview + Teasers

(http://i927.photobucket.com/albums/ad116/patchfolk/Sean%20Bean/sean%20bean%202/frankenstein/THE_FRANKENSTEIN_CHRONICLES_EP6_05_FULL_zpstlcwnwy4.jpg) (http://s927.photobucket.com/user/patchfolk/media/Sean%20Bean/sean%20bean%202/frankenstein/THE_FRANKENSTEIN_CHRONICLES_EP6_05_FULL_zpstlcwnwy4.jpg.html)

Quote

 Last week’s episode saw many of the loose ends start to come together in the perplexing case that John Marlott has been attempting to resolve over the last five weeks. There have been some tricksy red herrings along the way, but he’s finally hit upon a revelation that could well be the vital clue he missed at the very start of his investigations.

We started the episode witnessing the Shelley’s and William Chester’s unsuccessful attempt at galvanism on their friend, James Hogg, yet by the end of the hour our keen detective deduced that this once failed experiment had now been perfected in the years since that fateful night. And not only that, if the body of the stitched together young girl pulled out of the Thames did make her own way to the water’s edge, then the lines between science and science-fiction may have become more blurred than anyone could dream of. It’s no wonder Mary Shelley hightailed it out of London as quick as she damn well could!


So where does this leave the remaining characters in this concluding instalment you may wonder; will John Marlott get his man - or indeed the girl if his dalliance with Lady Hervey was anything to go by last week. Does the riddle of what happened to Alice ever get solved, will Nightingale continue to follow his old boss when the answers he is being given sound so fantastical and absurd, and who out of the remaining suspects is behind the macabre practice of breathing life into the fiction behind Frankenstein’s monster?

 Although I imagine that one of the biggest mysteries for many Sean Bean fans is the age old quandary that pops up whenever a new project of his is revealed, will he manage to survive until the end of the series…

I’m not going to even hint at the last one I’m afraid, but as for the rest, there are twists and turns coming in the finale that will tie together some of the seemingly non-connected strands of the plot rather neatly. It also takes a delicious turn towards the gothic at times too as the setting changes between the city and a wild ruin, complete with a dark vault that hides a secret and diabolical villain who plots furiously from his laboratory as he attempts to best Marlott.

  I'm really enjoying watching the new ITV Encore Drama 'The Frankenstein Chronicles'. One of the primary reasons is because I seen and heard so much of it being made as Galgorm Castle near Ballymena played a major part in many scenes, mainly internal in the basement which is Sean Bean's lodgings, some of the rooms at the front and in the attic. Its great to finally see scenes filmed to the front of the castle outside with a horse drawn carriage. Up until recently we had an office in the castle and heard many of Sean's scenes being filmed on the other side of our door. Between takes I got to chat to Sean a couple of times and being the friendly guy I am just chatted about normal stuff and not 'oh Im your biggest fan' stuff. Sean dies in nearly every film he is in so I had to ask him face to face 'Well tell me Sean, do you get to live this time?' lol to which he smirked before another member of the crew said 'We cannot reveal the plot lines...'

N.S. firm’s props on location in Ireland

Quote
Halifax’s Loyalist Arms & Repairs Ltd., a supplier of historical reproductions and props, has contributed to the TV series The Frankenstein Chronicles.

The series, produced in the United Kingdom and shot in Ireland, airs on ITV and A&E.

The Nova Scotia company, contacted by an Irish props and special effects firm, sent several shipments of arms-related props, including muskets, pistols and swords, to Ireland.


“I was intrigued by the time period that the series was to take place in (1827) and, for certain, interested in the hero of the series, actor Sean Bean; he is one of my favourite actors of all time,” Blair Higgins, owner of Loyalist Arms & Repairs, said in a news release.

He had “the unique pleasure” of custom fitting and finishing a flintlock pistol for Bean and received an autographed picture from the actor, according to the release.

Here is a recent pic of Sean Bean, (1827 period), who is assembling a flintlock pistol that our company, Loyalist Arms & Repairs Ltd, furnished for the TV series, "The Frankenstein Chronicles". We had sent off several prop shipments to this series, which was filmed in Ireland. During this series, Sean's character ,(john Marlott), mentions that he had served at Waterloo with the 95th Rifles. He also has a Baker rifle sword bayonet that is later used as a murder weapon in an episode, which we also supplied. Guess he can't get away from the 95th...

Quote
Sean is a very nice man. He also sent us an autographed pic of himself while production was still taking place. My favorite UK actor. Too cool.

We sold many pistols to the series, including a custom finished pistol for Sean himself, which we stamped "SB", so that he could easily pick it out from the rest.
I guess that means that Sean got to keep that one?

‘The Frankenstein Chronicles’ Looks At Shelley Novel And Its Body-Snatching Era – TCA

(http://i927.photobucket.com/albums/ad116/patchfolk/Sean%20Bean/sean%20bean%202/frankenstein/naamloos_zpss0cyopcy.png) (http://s927.photobucket.com/user/patchfolk/media/Sean%20Bean/sean%20bean%202/frankenstein/naamloos_zpss0cyopcy.png.html)

Quote
The Frankenstein Chronicles writer/director Benjamin Ross says his interest in the subject grew out of the era’s “legal grey area” in which anatomy schools looking for corpses to use for teaching purposes got bodies from court hangings and poor houses. Cadavers were hard to come by in those days because it was considered a “great curse” to have your corpse dissected. That resulted in a robust body-snatching market, and an embarrassed government that wanted to promote science, Ross told TV critics at a TCA panel promoting the series.

My hobby is history, particularly London history,” Ross said. “This came to me one night, seven or eight years ago: you could tell the Frankenstein story with an emphasis on the historical and not from the point of view of the creator but the point of view of an investigator who is looking into the ramifications of what this person is doing. Instead of a flat-out piece of history, why not do it as Frankenstein? It’s a fantasy piece, but footed in the real world.”

Taking that approach gave his re-imagining of the Frankenstein story an “emotional heft that a lot of Frankenstein treatments have lacked,” he told TV critics at TCA. In October, A&E snagged ITV’s six-part 19th century-set crime/horror series that takes its name from Mary Shelley’s gothic romance novel about a young science student named Frankenstein who creates a living creature.


Sean Bean plays police inspector John Marlott, who is on the hunt for a killer who appears to be assembling humans from body parts. Marlott has syphilis, picked up in the Napoleonic Wars, causing him to have hallucinations. “He’s taking mercury pills, which are heavy stuff, but which was the only thing that kept it at bay,” Bean said. “He knows he’s not going to be around for long. Because I’m going to die –  like I usually do,” Bean joked of his characters’ tendency to hand in their dinner pails early.

THE FRANKENSTEIN CHRONICLES Is ‘Fantasy Interwoven With History’
(http://i927.photobucket.com/albums/ad116/patchfolk/frankenstein-chronicles_zpsjxmbworp.jpg) (http://s927.photobucket.com/user/patchfolk/media/frankenstein-chronicles_zpsjxmbworp.jpg.html)
Quote
Get ready to see Frankenstein in a completely new light.

A&E’s period mystery crime drama mini-series The Frankenstein Chronicles is putting a new spin on Mary Shelley’s classic novel. Set in London in 1827 after a successful operation by the Thames River Police to nab a gang of opium smugglers, Inspector John Marlott (Game of Thrones alum Sean Bean) is horrified to discover what looks like a child’s corpse at first, but turns out to be a grotesque assembly of human body parts.

Executive producer Benjamin Ross revealed at the 2016 TCA Winter Press Tour today that he actually rooted the six-episode series in historical fact, rather than fiction.

“That was the genesis of this show really, the social history of the time and my interest in it and a sense that Frankenstein, the novel, had emerged from these facts and historical conditions as much as her own imagination,” Ross says. “And that there was a way of going back to that story with an emphasis on all of the things that were real in it that had preceded in that part of the world. The story is a fantasy but it’s interwoven with historical truth. It’s a fantasy rooted in the real world.”

During the press tour panel for The Frankenstein Chronicles, Ross revealed that all that true historical content will be woven in to the fantastical sci-fi aspects, creating the backbone of the series and making it stand out from all other Frankenstein-based shows and movies.

Canal + Series: "'The Frankenstein Chronicles' is a discussion of the work of Mary Shelley"

Quote
You mentioned earlier the societal context, the great misery of London in which Marlott investigation.  What?

 Our story takes place in London prédickensien, which was chaotic and often outlawed.  It is entirely credible to see a character like John Marlott end up at a time in the office of a minister, and the following in the poorest neighborhoods.  It is he who connects us to that time.  It is both a very romantic and very human hero, fragile, haunted by the ghost of his wife.  Sean Bean has addressed the role as a study on grief.

 Do you hold a series where Sean Bean does not die at the end of Season 1?

 Absolutely.  We hope to develop a season 2, and it is starting.

The Frankenstein Chronicles: A dark investigation brilliantly by Sean Bean

Quote
In the end, The Frankenstein Chronicles is a series that thus takes its time to take in his dark world and we offer an interesting social painting that finds its most glaucous elements in his time and his characters of dubious morality.  Note that, if the story is complete, its conclusion still calls for a suite that would be most welcome - nothing has been announced yet.

Ah, my goof. I was thinking we were already one year on from the last BAFTAs, but I checked and I see that those were only the film awards, not television, and it was just in February.  :arrrgh:  Don't mind me: I keep thinking, "I'm losing my mind" when I actually lost it a long time ago!

Here's hoping he gets nominated!!!

To be honest I'm not surprised.

ITV chose to show it on their Encore premium pay channel which only just started last year.  It had a pretty small audience in the UK - the majority of us do not suscribe to pay channels but rely on the terrestial BBC/ITV offerings.

If ITV had followed up with a showing on one of their main channels, it would have picked up more viewers and a lot more interest - but they didn't.

It was also up against some of the most hyped up programmes/actors in recent years which certainly didn't help.

Well, I have said it before and I will say it again, you have to get used to being FRUSTRATED if you want to be
a FAN of SEAN !!! He will always be the DARK HORSE in these award shows. They will ignore all of his
BRILLANT ACTING and just give their awards to friends and family, but never to him !!! It would be so easy for
me to just be a fan of BP or GC or any of the other actors they want (demand) you to like (worship). But they
don't have SEAN'S TALENT and I find them to be just BORING and NOT INTERESTING. I HATE to say this, but
I think SEAN will get (some day) more awards in this country than in the UK. Anyway, I'm happy to be SEAN'S
FAN even if he NEVER GETS a BIG ACTING AWARD. He's still the BEST in my book.

Funny thing is, he has an Emmy, which is one of the biggest acting awards. Ironically, because it is an International Emmy, nobody cares...

Mind you, he's made some bad choices when it comes to parts. Sean is always brilliant but often gets overlooked because the shows he's in are pretty so-so. The BAFTAS for telly go to big BBC-ish shows that receive a lot of coverage and have lots of major British stars in. Sean seems to have dropped out of that British loop. This is a great pity.

I would imagine that it can be hard to tell if the show is going to be a success or not in the beginning. But, I will say that Sean could possibly benefit from seeking some other people's advice about a script he's been offered. Airborne, anyone? '-)

I think TFC was brilliant. I also think Season 2 of Legends was very good, much better than season 1 but, both TV networks mishandled these shows. It was not Sean's fault acting wise or choosing a bad show that was the problem. I think he is getting better at choosing better shows and movies. Just because the shows were overlooked for awards, does not necessarily mean that Sean's performance or that his creative input into the production is not being noticed. Look at Red Riding - another really high quality show that did well but seemed to do even  better after it was originally aired and it got Sir Ridley Scott to notice Sean again. So, you never know what may lead to what...a professional reputation and a consistent overall body of work is still very important in the entertainment industry.

I want Sean to get the awards because his performances always deserve them. I think he likes to be on the cutting edge, to be a rebel or Pioneer type  which is why he doesn't play the suck up game. So because of this, he is willing to take risks as to what network and who is in charge, etc. For a while I was always lamenting him to grow up and just play nice to the BBC types but I think its more about his integrity than anything else now. He's just not comfortable playing the BBC popularity game. I mean come on, could you see him playing a role in Downton Abbey? What character? It's just not what he wants to do.

I am only going to give him half credit for choosing GOT only because he could have said no. But, the author of the book has stated many times that when he wrote the character of Ned Stark, he had Sean Bean in mind from Day One. So in this case, the role kind of chose him ...not the other way around ;-)

The Frankenstein Chronicles won best VFX at the IFTAS. Pleased to say that Yellowmoon helped out on nearly 300 VFX shots for the series. It was our first official project undertaken by the newly created Yellowmoon VFX department. Here's a very small sample of the work that Paul Barrett and I completed for the show.

This is one of those jobs that I always dreamed of being part of. ScreenScene over in Dublin were working on lots of shots for ITV’s Frankenstein Chronicles and I was lucky enough to get to work on some of the nasty head models. Although these models and sculpts look like Zombies they are actually heads of patients with syphilis. Sean Bean does not look his best in this show.

Maybe we will get lucky and a channel that has respect for the viewer will pick it up.

A and E was the only channel showing the new "War and Peace" earlier this year in Canada.
I understand in the US it was aired on other channels in addition to A and E.

Here in Canada they just stopped showing it halfway through. No explanation. No response to
emails from many of us. They replaced it with "Pawn Stars."

Quote
The Frankenstein Chronicles will return for a second season on ITV Encore.

Sean Bean will also be back for the new run of the series, which is inspired by Mary Shelley's Frankenstein novel.

 Production of the new series is set to begin in Northern Ireland in January 2017 and will be executive produced by Tracey Scoffield and produced by David Tanner for Rainmark Films. Bean will also executive produce the new series.

 The series introduced John Marlott (Bean), a veteran of the Battle of Waterloo, who was battling his own demons and haunted by the loss of his wife and child. In pursuit of a chilling and diabolical killer, Marlott’s investigation took him into the most exalted rooms and darkest corners of Georgian London, a world of body snatchers, anatomists and scientists whose interests and ambitions came together in the market for dead bodies.

 As Marlott investigated, it brought him up against the medical establishment and powerful political forces wrestling with the march of scientific progress. One thing was for certain – a demonic power was clearly at work in the city, attempting to reanimate the dead in a curious parody of the celebrated novel.

ITV Encore Renews ‘The Frankenstein Chronicles’ For Second Season

Quote
ITV Encore has picked up their period drama The Frankenstein Chronicles, starring Sean Bean (Game of Thrones, Legends), for a second season, TVWise has learned. Six episodes have been ordered for the show’s second season.

 “The Frankenstein Chronicles certainly resonated with viewers and we’re delighted to be working with Sean Bean, Tracey Scoffield and her production team for a second series,” said ITV’s Controller of Drama Victoria Fea, who commissioned the second season alongside Commissioning Editor Sarah Conroy.

At present the only cast member who is confirmed to be returning is Sean Bean as Inspector John Marlott, with ITV stating that further casting would be confirmed at a later date. Additionally, Sean Bean has been upped to executive producer for the show’s second season, after serving as a co-producer on season one.

The Frankenstein Chronicles was created by Benjamin Ross & Barry Langford and is being produced by Rainmark Films in association with Far Moor. David Tanner is the series producer, while Tracey Scoffield, Sean Bean, Justin Thomson-Glover and Patrick Irwin are the executive producers.

The show’s second season is set to enter production in Northern Ireland in January 2017 and will be receiving funding from Northern Ireland Screen. Endemol Shine International handles global sales. A&E airs the series in the United States.

“We are thrilled to be working once more with Sean Bean in the role of John Marlott, who is a returning hero like no other”, Executive Producer Tracey Scoffield added in a statement. “With the continued support of ITV and Endemol Shine International we want to be more ambitious than ever with Season 2.

ITV recommissions The Frankenstein Chronicles for ITV Encore starring Sean Bean and produced by Rainmark Films

ITV has commissioned a second series of the period crime drama, The Frankenstein Chronicles, starring multi award winning actor Sean Bean from producers Rainmark Films to be screened on ITV Encore.

Taking inspiration from Mary Shelley’s Gothic literary classic, the first series of The Frankenstein Chronicles, captured the imagination of both viewers and critics alike.

 “Bold, eerily, effective and chillingly atmospheric,” said the Daily Telegraph, whilst The Guardian felt the drama “offers real, rare shivers” and TV Times critiqued Sean Bean’s characterisation of Inspector John Marlott – “Bean is great as an everyman in a strange world” whilst the drama was considered “deliciously creepy”.

The show – based on a re-imaging of the gothic horror Frankenstein by Mary Shelley – proved a huge global hit.

It was filmed on location across Northern Ireland with many of the scenes shot in Armagh.

The production team had wanted locations which lent itself to the era of the period drama and the historic architecture of Armagh proved just the ticket.

Armagh Courthouse, the Gaol, Russell Street and Vicars Hill were among the backdrops for the unfolding drama.

Gosford Forest Park – which has also been used as a Game of Thrones location – also featured in the Frankenstein Chronicles.

The good citizens of Armagh watched as the action was filmed and got a close-up look at what went into producing such a detailed show.

Now ITV has recommissioned the Frankenstein Chronicles for ITV Encore and it seems almost certain that Armagh will once again feature on the itinerary.

Production of the new series is set to begin on location across Northern Ireland in January 2017.

Full casting details will be kept under wraps and revealed as filming starts.

What's with the 7 episodes?
I think it's just a typo/mistake.

I can't wait for the next season! I cannot imagine where they will go with it. The writing was brilliant last season.

The Frankenstein Chronicles is returning for a second series on ITV
   :thumbsup:  So happy about this.

I just rewatched the whole series, and even knowing the plot already, it is fascinating to watch Sean's face and reactions.

I loved Legends, but watching TFC again, I wondered if Legends would have done better if Sean had been onscreen more (as in TFC) and if the scenes had been taken slower.

Frankenstein Chronicles to film in spring
Quote
The second series of ITV Encore’s The Frankenstein Chronicles is heading to active pre-production early next year, with shooting set for the spring in Northern Ireland.

 Sean Bean returns in the lead role of Inspector John Marlott in the re-imagining of Mary Shelley’s Gothic classic, set in 19th century London.

 Bean executive produces alongside Tracey Scoffield and David Tanner of Rainmark Films, and Justin Thomson-Glover and Patrick Irwin of Far Moor.

PI subscribers can log in for details of the producer, line producer and casting director and a likely start date for shooting.

 The show was created by Benjamin Ross, and writer Barry Langford, and is backed by funding from Northern Ireland Screen.

 In September this year, Bean began filming his starring role of Father Michael Kerrigan in Broken, Jimmy’ McGovern’s major new Liverpool-set 6 x 60 drama for BBC One about a Catholic priest and his struggle with his faith in contemporary Britain.

The Use of Brands in TV: The Frankenstein Chronicles

Quote
spoilers*

TV has always loved adaptations, remakes, and spin offs. But the past few years have seen a new trend: brands. These can be an updated reboot of a classic (BBC’s Sherlock or ITV’s Jekyll & Hyde), stories inspired by well-known people (ITV’s Houdini & Doyle and Arthur & George – both featuring Arthur Conan Doyle in this case), or series inspired by literally classics rather than straight adaptations (Sky’s Penny Dreadful and ITV Encore’s The Frankenstein Chronicles). The Frankenstein Chronicles is particularly interesting in the way it harnesses its source material, creating a reimagined story and characters that are inspired by the novel rather than staying faithful to it. Indeed, The Frankenstein Chronicles is self-reflexive in featuring Mary Shelley herself in the drama: her book “Frankenstein” has already been published, and instead an army veteran is recruited by Sir Robert Peel (who will shortly create the Metropolitan Police) to investigate the appearance of several bodies which appear to have been experimented on in the style of Frankenstein, perhaps even inspired by the novel.

What is interesting about The Frankenstein Chronicles though, is the way it weaves the Frankenstein story throughout the 6 part series. At the start, Mary Shelley is very present, as the investigator Marlott pursues the truth behind her secret experiments with her husband which led to writing her book. Marlott is trying to uncover who is behind the creation of the mismatched bodies and why – taking him to explore a respected surgeon’s fascination with reanimation through galvanism. As the episodes progress, however, the pursuit of the investigation and the companions Marlott acquires seem to set this show up more as a conventional detective drama. We get the sense that Marlott and his colleague Nightingale make a good team, will solve this case, establish themselves as detectives and simply move onto a new case in subsequent series. By the start of episode 5 it absolutely feels like Frankenstein as a brand has enabled this set up to take root, and it can move on from the source material by simply retaining the gothic tone of the novel, rather than needing to stay with the story. The use of brands in this sense is even more satisfying with a mention of Marlott previously being a member of the 95th Rifles – the same as Sean Bean’s character in Sharpe – and the theme tune of Sharpe is even whistled by a character in the series. These references cunningly incorporate another popular brand into the show, without directly addressing it, to recommend itself to viewers.

The end of the series, however, takes a turn that I was absolutely not expecting: Marlott is accused of murder; all his allies turn on him; he is tried and hanged. The hero detective who I thought was being set up for a dynamic and enjoyable returning series is dead (mind you, this is Sean Bean: I don’t know why his death was a surprise). But more so: Marlott then finds himself conscious again. He has been patched up by the charming but suspicious doctor; spare body parts have been used to reanimate his corpse, and he is the Frankenstein Monster. The series ends with Marlott escaping, hobbling away into the countryside, naked, growling at his abhorrent appearance, officially dead and without friends. Apart from the shock of having the neatly constructed detective precinct torn away, I was really surprised that the series did indeed go through with the Frankenstein story, of sorts. The tragedy that exists in the novel and the menacing undertones are lifted and played out in The Frankenstein Chronicles. But more than that, rather than remain grounded in the realistic world, with a surgeon trying but failing repeatedly to reanimate corpses, it chooses to enter the fantastical world of the novel by resurrecting Marlott. In the end it really is a reimagining of the novel, rather than the drama simply being inspired by it.

Filming begins this month on the second series of The Frankenstein Chronicles, and Sean Bean is set to return. We are yet to see how the drama will continue, with the story of the novel more or less completed and the detective set up having been removed, but more crucially, how the series will navigate the balance between having a heretofore realistic setting, and a protagonist who everyone knows is dead but has been cut up and brought back to life. It’s a challenge I look forward to

Filming begins on ITV's The Frankenstein Chronicles - Season Two - starring Sean Bean

“He lives...”

The Frankenstein Chronicles, a terrifying re-imagining of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein starring Sean Bean has returned to begin filming its second season for ITV Encore and Endemol.

The major new six-part drama series, produced by Rainmark Films, sees Bean return as John Marlott - no longer a mere mortal, Marlott’s purpose is to seek revenge on Lord Daniel Hervey for taking his life, and to redeem his soul after being wrongly convicted and hanged for murder.

Set in 1830s London, Marlott must operate outside the law as he comes up against dark forces in high society and in the dangerous slums of the over-crowded capital. In his pursuit of Hervey, Marlott takes on the establishment in the form of Robert Peel’s newly formed Police force and the Church. In the darkest corners of Georgian London, Marlott acts as defender of the poor and destitute as he fights to clear his name and bring Hervey to justice.   

Cast joining Sean Bean (Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Accused) includes Laurence Fox (Becoming Jane, Lewis), Ed Stoppard (The Musketeers, Cilla), Maeve Dermody (SS-GB, And Then There Were None) and Richie Campbell (Waterloo Road, Liar).  Robbie Gee (Cuffs, Snatch), Ryan Sampson (Plebs, Holby City), Tom Ward (Silent Witness) and Vanessa Kirby (The Crown, About Time) will also return.

The new series is written by Michael Robert Johnson, Paul Tomalin, Noel Farragher, Colin Carberry and Glenn Patterson, directed by Alex Gabassi (Psi, The Hypnotist), produced by Lawrence Till (Harlots, Mr Selfridge, Shameless) and executive produced by Tracey Scoffield (Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Fight, The Gathering Storm, Dirty Pretty Things), David Tanner (The Frankenstein Chronicles - Series 1, Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Fight – as co-producer) and Frank Doelger (Game of Thrones, Rome, John Adams, The Gathering Storm) for Rainmark Films, and Justin Thomson and Patrick Irwin (The Fall, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell) for Far Moor.

Talent behind the camera includes director of photography Joel Devlin, Costume Designer Lindsay Pugh, Hair and Make-Up Designer Pamela Smyth and Production Designer Ashleigh Jeffers.

Filming will begin in Northern Ireland from 13 March 2017 with funding from Northern Ireland Screen.

Endemol Worldwide Distribution is handling international sales outside UK/Ireland.

In Pictures: Armagh filming of award-winning period drama The Frankenstein Chronicles
Quote
They’re back!

Cameras are once again rolling on the second series of the award-winning gothic period drama The Frankenstein Chronicles.

And again Armagh City and its stunning architectural backdrop is taking centre-stage.

The city’s Vicars Hill was again taken back in time, with the famous street decked out to give it the appearance of 1830s London, the era in which the second series is set.

 The major new six-part drama series, produced by Rainmark Films, sees Hollywood star Sean Bean return as John Marlott – no longer a mere mortal, Marlott’s purpose is to seek revenge on Lord Daniel Hervey for taking his life, and to redeem his soul after being wrongly convicted and hanged for murder.

Marlott finds himself forced to operate outside the law as he comes up against dark forces in high society and in the dangerous slums of the over-crowded capital. In his pursuit of Hervey, Marlott takes on the establishment in the form of Robert Peel’s newly formed police force and the Church.

In the darkest corners of Georgian London, Marlott acts as defender of the poor and destitute as he fights to clear his name and bring Hervey to justice.





Cast joining Sean Bean includes Laurence Fox (Becoming Jane, Lewis), Ed Stoppard (The Musketeers, Cilla), Maeve Dermody (SS-GB, And Then There Were None) and Richie Campbell (Waterloo Road, Liar).

Robbie Gee (Cuffs, Snatch), Ryan Sampson (Plebs, Holby City), Tom Ward (Silent Witness) and Vanessa Kirby (The Crown, About Time) will also return.

The film crews returned to Armagh this week.

The first city folk knew cameras were to begin rolling again came on Monday morning when the Shambles Yard was taken over with lorries and trailers for the cast and crew.

Shooting on the series began on location across Northern Ireland in March.

These exclusive photographs – taken by Jacqueline Prunty Donnelly – give a fantastic behind the scenes glimpse into the production as filming took place in Armagh.

No doubt this will not be their last visit to our stunning wee city!

The Frankenstein Chronicles: FIRST on Showmax

Sean Bean plays policeman John Marlott, a war vet haunted by the ghosts of his wife and child, who makes a grisly discovery on the banks of the Thames in this bone-chillingly dark and brilliantly acted series. In an attempt to unlock the secrets of the otherworldly force that is targeting London’s children, Marlott enlists the help of author Mary Shelley. Throbbing with violence and laced with pretty graphic blood and gore, it will be gobbled up by connoisseurs of horror looking for a new take on one of the earliest examples of the genre.

The Frankenstein Chronicles
ITV Encore
I was a big fan of this grimy, grim pre-Victorian horror/crime mash-up. In series one, we got Sean Bean’s haggard, disease-ridden policeman John Marlott. No longer a mere mortal, Marlott’s purpose is to seek revenge on Lord Daniel Hervey for taking his life, and to redeem his soul after being wrongly convicted and hanged for murder. Set in 1830s London, Marlott must operate outside the law as he comes up against dark forces in high society and in the dangerous slums of the over-crowded capital. In his pursuit of Hervey, Marlott takes on the establishment in the form of Robert Peel’s newly formed Police force and the Church. In the darkest corners of Georgian London, Marlott acts as defender of the poor and destitute as he fights to clear his name and bring Hervey to justice.  Laurence Fox and Maeve Dermody join the likes of Tom Ward and The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby.

The Frankenstein Chronicles filmed Belfast as London
Quote
Gothic TV drama The Frankenstein Chronicles has filmed a second series on location in Northern Ireland, using Belfast as a stand-in for 1830s London.

Filming took place entirely on location and was supported in part by the Northern Ireland Screen Fund, which offers an investment of up to 25% of a production’s overall budget, in addition to the UK’s high-end television tax relief.

Northern Ireland has a relatively small production industry but the combined financial programmes available make it an appealing filming location.

The Frankenstein Chronicles made use of Belfast’s multitude of historic warehouses and architecture to achieve the period visuals they were looking for.

The series is a reimagining of Mary Shelley’s classic 1818 novel and follows Sean Bean’s police officer as he investigates the crimes of a foe who is reanimating the dead.

“It was never on the table to film the show in a studio setting,” says Catherine Geary, the series’ location manager, in comments to KFTV.

“The intention was always to create the story world in real locations, to help give depth to the drama.”

Shooting largely in real locations has helped craft the show’s specific period visuals and identity, even if the team had to respond to the challenges of filming in places that were not designed for production.

Production took place at the same time that the BBC was shooting its period drama The Woman in White, so the two teams had to communicate their respective schedules against the backdrop of a smaller filming hub.

It might not surprise you to learn that Sean Bean has come over a bit dead, given the rate his characters bite the dust. But season two of The Frankenstein Chronicles (page 20) appears to have solved that issue by stitching the unlucky fella back together. Still, our trip to Belfast to visit the set and meet the cast and crew of this ITV Encore drama was enough to give our reporter a good scare.

Sean Bean’s gothic horror returns, picking up three years after the events of last series, when Inspector John Marlott (Bean) was wrongly hanged for murder and then brought back from the dead in a sinister experiment.

We rejoin a ‘reanimated’ Marlott in London’s Bethlem Hospital, where the poor man is struggling to recall who – or what – he is.
   
But with a newfound sense of strength and an ability to see the dead, will he get his revenge on scheming nobleman Daniel Hervey (played by Ed Stoppard)?

Lewis star Laurence Fox joins the cast this series as a mysterious German aristocrat, Frederick Dipple, who is hiding a dark secret…

The Frankenstein Chronicles
 The bleak gothic horror returns for a second season, but will Sean Bean ever make it to the end of a show without being bumped off? This re-imagining of the Frankenstein myth, picks up three years since police officer John Marlott (Sean Bean) escaped from Lord Daniel Hervey (Ed Stoppard) after being wrongly convicted, hanged for murder and then raised from the dead only to roam in the shadows of London. It lives!

In 1830, we join reanimated Marlott chained in a cell at the Royal Bethlem Hospital, on a wing for the criminally insane as a broken man. A visit by a local reverend stirs Marlott though, and with a jolt finds a renewed purpose to seek revenge on Lord Hervey for his crimes, and to redeem his soul. Watch the trailer here. Premieres 1 November on ITV Encore (Credit: ITV)

Second series of Armagh-filmed Frankenstein Chronicles to get TV premiere this week

ITV Encore again to show gothic horror series

Quote
The waiting is almost over for gothic horror fans as the season season of the Frankenstein Chronicles will premiere this week.

Sean Bean et al will return for the fantastic and exciting next instalment in the period drama, with Armagh once again forming a stunning backdrop to the action.

It was only in June that the city’s Vicars Hill was once again taken back in time, with the famous street decked out to give it the appearance of 1830s London, the era in which the second series is set.

The major new six-part drama series, produced by Rainmark Films, sees Hollywood star Sean Bean return as John Marlott – no longer a mere mortal, Marlott’s purpose is to seek revenge on Lord Daniel Hervey for taking his life, and to redeem his soul after being wrongly convicted and hanged for murder.
 Marlott finds himself forced to operate outside the law as he comes up against dark forces in high society and in the dangerous slums of the over-crowded capital. In his pursuit of Hervey, Marlott takes on the establishment in the form of Robert Peel’s newly formed police force and the Church.

In the darkest corners of Georgian London, Marlott acts as defender of the poor and destitute as he fights to clear his name and bring Hervey to justice.

Cast joining Sean Bean includes Laurence Fox (Becoming Jane, Lewis), Ed Stoppard (The Musketeers, Cilla), Maeve Dermody (SS-GB, And Then There Were None) and Richie Campbell (Waterloo Road, Liar).
Robbie Gee (Cuffs, Snatch), Ryan Sampson (Plebs, Holby City), Tom Ward (Silent Witness) and Vanessa Kirby (The Crown, About Time) will also return.

The season season will again be shown on ITV Encore.

The first episode will be broadcast this Wednesday, November 1, at 10pm

Sean's been to hell and loved it! Sean Bean says playing an investigator who's been brought back to life in The Frankenstein Chronicles has been 'dead good fun'

Sean Bean, the Hollywood sex symbol? At the moment, he looks anything but.

Chatting at Myra Castle, an imposing house close to Strangford Lough in Northern Ireland where he’s filming series two of ITV’s gothic horror The Frankenstein Chronicles, the Yorkshireman looks like Worzel Gummidge after ten rounds with Mike Tyson.

‘My character John Marlott, a private investigator, has gone through Hell,’ explains the 58-year-old, gesturing to his unkempt hair, week-long stubble and blood-stained shirt. ‘He was brought back to life after being hanged at the end of series one, and has just escaped from the mental asylum Bedlam, where he’d been chained to a wall on the grounds he was criminally insane.

Now he’s taken refuge in one of the poorest areas of Georgian London. He’s far more concerned with survival than how he looks.’

The five-times married former star of 90s Napoleonic War series Sharpe, who still cuts quite a dash in a suit, is clearly enjoying filming this new series of the highly-rated period thriller.

‘I’ve spent the last week covered in fake blood, and that tells you all you need to know about it. The first series was more cerebral, but this time round there’s violence, passion and heartbreak. It does what it says on the tin and it gives you horror by the bucketload.

It’s brilliant to act in,’ says Sean. ‘There’s no “What’s my motivation for this scene?” – you just do it! It’s daunting when you just launch into the scene, it’s like jumping off a springboard.’

Series one of The Frankenstein Chronicles, inspired by Mary Shelley’s novel, began with former soldier John Marlott working as a policeman patrolling the River Thames. The discovery of a horrific patchwork creature made up of stitched-together body parts in the shallows of the river set him on a mission to track down its creator.

By the series finale, Marlott was closing in on the villain, only to be framed for murder and hanged. But in scenes straight out of a Hollywood horror movie, dangerous scientist Lord Daniel Hervey (Ed Stoppard) shockingly brought Marlott back from the dead – Frankenstein-style.

‘The story has moved on three years to 1830 and Marlott is still on a mission to right the wrongs of the past but he’s a fugitive now, operating outside of the law,’ explains Sean. And there’s a supernatural element, too. ‘He’s not alive but nor is he dead – he’s somewhere between Heaven and Hell.’

Entering this dangerous world for series two is former Lewis star Laurence Fox, as Frederick Dipple, a German aristocrat with a keen eye for fashion and a passion for robots. ‘He’s incredibly wealthy. I don’t think I get vaguely dirty, even when I’m fighting,’ says Laurence. ‘I think the entire costume budget went on Dipple, and that is fine by me.’

Both Marlott and Dipple are drawn towards another new character, Esther Rose, a brilliant seamstress played by Maeve Dermody, who provides Marlott with lodgings in her home in run-down Pye Street, and in whom Dipple is romantically interested. Marlott meanwhile can see ghosts, among them Esther’s late son.

Sean says the supernatural thread was part of the appeal of the show and why he was keen to sign up for another series. ‘The supernatural does interest me and I like ghost stories. I wouldn’t say I like horror, seeing gratuitous violence and blood everywhere, but I do like stories of ghostly hauntings.

‘Although I’ve yet to see a ghost,’ he adds. ‘Frustratingly, there are supposed to be several at Myra Castle. One even apparently turned up during filming, when I wasn’t around, in a very dark tunnel which runs for half a mile from the main building and dates back to 1844.

We used it for filming and apparently a shadowy figure emerged that was there one minute, gone the next. I wish I’d been there to witness it!’

Sean says he often receives scripts for spooky shows where things go bump in the night, but most of them aren’t in the same league as The Frankenstein Chronicles.

‘With some scripts, I barely get past the first page. So many are just predictable and dull, and I get fed up reading mediocre stuff. Thankfully, this show is much better written.’

A downside of filming is being away from his beautiful home in Somerset, which he shares with wife Ashley Moore, a former nanny who is 26 years his junior. But how would Sean feel about being immortal like Marlott? ‘You could carry a lot of sadness and grief from losing loved ones. It sounds good on paper but I don’t know.’

The Frankenstein Chronicle: Sean Bean returns as half-monster, half-man in new series
(http://i927.photobucket.com/albums/ad116/patchfolk/Sean%20Bean/sean%20bean%202/frankenstein/Sean-Bean-871419_zpsbejj1wop.jpg) (http://s927.photobucket.com/user/patchfolk/media/Sean%20Bean/sean%20bean%202/frankenstein/Sean-Bean-871419_zpsbejj1wop.jpg.html)
Quote
It came as no surprise to anyone that Sean Bean’s character died in the final episode of The Frankenstein Chronicles, ITV Encore’s grisly retelling of the Frankenstein myth.

Bean famously gets killed off in almost every role he plays – from GoldenEye to Game Of Thrones – so no one raised an eyebrow when his character, 19th-century detective John Marlott, was despatched to his maker after being wrongly convicted of murder.

But then came the twist.

Because the supernatural drama depicts a world in which re-animation after death is possible, Marlott was brought back to life before the final credits rolled.
 
Cured of syphilis but no longer exactly human, Marlott – who’d been investigating a hideous crime in which a monster had been built from the body parts of missing children – had become a monster himself at the hands of mad scientist Lord Daniel Hervey (Ed Stoppard).

Hervey was the aristocrat with the unhealthy interest in re-animation, who’d managed to get Marlott executed and try out his experiment to bring him back to life. Now a convicted murderer, however, Marlott has been robbed of his chance to get to heaven and reunited with his dead wife and child. He is out for revenge.

So the stakes are high as the second series begins this week. Three years have passed, and in 1830 we find Marlott in an insane asylum and something of a gibbering wreck, explains Sean.

“He’s not quite sure himself how long he’s been there or why he’s there or who he is, but he manages to get out to try to find Daniel Hervey,” explains Sean, 58. “Marlott gradually comes around to figuring out where he is and what he is.

It’s a voyage of discovery for him. Memories are coming back to him, he’s remembering things. He’s suffering from these horrible visions. He still has his belief in God. It’s a very strange kind of world he inhabits.”

Little by little, Marlott discovers that he has superhuman powers.

“For example, he can see people from different worlds or people in the past, ghosts, but only certain people,” explains Sean. “He doesn’t really know why. I guess we figure that out during the series. The pieces start fitting together.”

Into Marlott’s world come characters old and new. Lewis star Laurence Fox joins the cast as wealthy German aristocrat Frederick Dipple. Eagle-eyed viewers will remember that, last series, there were references to Johann Dippel, an actual historical figure who practised alchemy and anatomy and is thought to have been the inspiration for Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Could the two be related, despite the slight difference in their surnames?

The younger Dipple is eager to be part of London’s burgeoning science and technology scene. He wants to bring forward the era of robots and machines, but a determined streak and pots of money may make him ruthless.

For Laurence, it was the chance to act alongside Sean Bean that drew him to the role.

“Sean is amazing,” says Laurence, 39.

“I had been sort of busy with just sorting out life and the kids [sons Winston, nine, and Eugene, five, with ex-wife Billie Piper and stuff, and then the script for Frankenstein Chronicles arrived. It was an interesting part and if I got to act with Sean Bean, I thought that would be a good reason.”

Also joining the cast is SS-GB’s Maeve Dermody as Esther Rose, a lonely, widowed seamstress who helps Marlott out when he’s on the run.

Despite being on a mission to bring Hervey to justice, Marlott also champions London’s disenfranchised underclass, explains Sean.

“Marlott feels at home with these kinds of outsiders like Esther,” he says.

“He doesn’t feel comfortable in Westminster with Daniel Hervey and Dipple.”

So he is set to expose their corruption and bring down Hervey in six episodes of thrilling horror.

Revenge of the walking dead
The Frankenstein Chronicles (ITV Encore, 10pm)
Billed as a “re-imagining” of the titular sci-fi shocker, series one of The Frankenstein Chronicles borrowed enough from the book to justify its title, and even featured Mary Shelley herself. That connection seems to have loosened, judging by the second series’s opener. Apparently “resurrected” after his execution, John Marlott (Sean Bean) has become an early example of the walking dead; first seen as a Bedlam inmate, he escapes and is given clothes by a seamstress (Maeve Dermody). Meanwhile, Robert Peel (Tom Ward) meets a German toff (Laurence Fox), and his new police force are baffled by a serial clergy-killer.

Only the quest of the hero — now an unnatural being, like the Creature — to…

Thanks! Here are the last lines of the article, which you couldn't see:

Quote
Only the quest of the hero — now an unnatural being, like the Creature — to avenge the wrongs done to him preserves the link with Frankenstein. But, as he blunders around London making enemies, you’re more likely to be reminded of Tom Hardy in Taboo than of Shelley’s novel.

Series 2 of The Frankenstein Chronicles begins tomorrow, Wednesday 1st November, at 10pm on ITV Encore. Sean Bean returns as John Marlott – no longer a mere mortal, Marlott’s purpose is to seek revenge on Lord Daniel Hervey for taking his life, and to redeem his soul after being wrongly convicted and hanged for murder. The six-part drama series, produced by Rainmark Films, filmed entirely on location in Northern Ireland and received funding from Northern Ireland Screen with support from Invest NI.

Three years have passed since John Marlott (Sean Bean) escaped from Daniel Hervey (Ed Stoppard). In 1830, we find him chained and manacled in a cell at Royal Bethlem Hospital, on a wing for the criminally insane.

Marlott is lost in a nether world. Denied his resurrection and reunion with his family in heaven. He is unreachable, unresponsive – a broken man.

A visit by a local Reverend stirs Marlott. There is a glint of recognition. The visit causes a violent outburst and Marlott is administered electro-shock therapy. Terrible memories resurface, Hervey, Lady Jemima, Flora, his resurrection.  Suddenly Marlott is jolted back to life, with renewed purpose to seek revenge on Daniel Hervey for his crimes, and to redeem his soul after being wrongly convicted for murder.

London during our period is the capital of the world, the forefront of modernity of new advances in science and technology – the reason why the handsome German aristocrat Frederick Dipple (Laurence Fox) is in town.

Marlott meets widowed seamstress Esther Rose (MAEVE DERMODY) who supplies him with a new set of clothes. She recognizes there is something unusual about Marlott and she is drawn to him in the same way he is to her.

When the body of a murdered Archdeacon is discovered; the first of a series of grisly clergy murders which will send a shockwave through
London, Home Secretary Sir Robert Peel’s (TOM WARD) new Metropolitan Police fight with the Parish Watchmen for jurisdiction.  The lines are drawn in the battle between church and state.

London 1830. John Marlott escapes the Bethlem Hospital seeking his revenge on Lord Daniel Hervey.  The hunter soon becomes the hunted.

The Frankenstein Chronicles

If you need proof that ITV Encore wants to be up there with the big guys in terms of original content, look no further than this dark take on the roots of Frankenstein mythology. Sean Bean, deserving of a Bafta for Broken, returns as Thames river detective Inspector John Marlott (above), his daily grind awash with floating corpses. The stellar cast includes Tom Ward, The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby and, new for series two, Laurence Fox and Maeve Dermody. From today.

But just in case you're not aware, a computer's DVD drive will let you change that setting when you put in a DVD from a different region, but typically only for a maximum of five times. After that it will be locked to whatever was the last region you used.

Episode 2 - Not John Marlott
Quote
John Marlott adopts a new identity and gains employment.  He believes someone is lying about the recent murders of local clergymen and he is determined to uncover the truth in his search for justice.

Long Synopsis

Journalist Boz (RYAN SAMPSON), working for the Evening Chronicle, is on the scene for this second clergy murder. In an effort to get the inside track, he meets Mr Renquist (MARTIN McCANN), the Dean of Westminster’s coroner, who hands him autopsy reports confirming that both murdered bodies were eviscerated.

Hunted by the police, Marlott takes cover in the Pye Street slum. Using the alias Jack Martins, he secures a job removing the plague dead.  Alongside him on his death cart is roguish Spence (FRANCIS MAGEE), a man with a past who drinks to forget.

Newspapers report the vile chopping up of the clergy victims' bodies. Marlott knows otherwise. Father Ambrose was not torn limb from limb. He saw him with his own eyes. The newspapers are deliberately misreporting the facts.

Certain Hervey is behind the murders and taking the hearts for his awful work, Marlott needs help finding him. No longer a policeman and now a fugitive, he must operate outside the law. The only person he can turn to is former friend Joseph Nightingale.   

Nightingale will have nothing to do with Marlott and still blames him for Flora’s death.

Marlott is badly injured while working in the graveyard and Esther Rose stitches him up. She offers him better lodgings in her shop.  We learn that Frederick Dipple has commissioned her embroidery for a dress for a clockwork automaton due to be unveiled to the great and the good of London at a party in one week’s time.

To prove his suspicions, correct, Marlott goes to the church vault under cover of darkness, and together with Spence, and uncovers the body of the Archdeacon.  In the darkness of the burial vault it is revealed that, as he suspected, the Archdeacon’s heart is missing.

TNT series: "The Frankenstein Chronicles" continues after Christmas, "Game of Thrones" at the turn of the year

Quote
Two fantastic formats run on TNT series for the holidays at the end of the year.  The pay-TV channel shows the seventh season of "Game of Thrones"   as a sender premiere in an event programming on New Year's Eve and New Year's Eve.  The second season of "The Frankenstein Chronicles"   with Sean Bean starts on the 27th of December.  Both series repeat the previous seasons at Christmas.

 The Frankenstein Chronicles
 From December 27th at 9:15 pm, TNT Series will be showing the German premiere of the six-part second season of "The Frankenstein Chronicles".  Sean Bean again takes on the role of John Marlott, who was played in the first season over: Falsely accused the investigator was sentenced as a murderer and hanged.  But for him that was not the end, he returned to the living.

In the second season, he is no longer just an "ordinary mortal".  He is thirsting for revenge on Lord Daniel Hervey ( Ed Stoppard ), whom he blames for his "death".  So it takes Marlott up with dark powers in high society in London in the 1830s and with the dangerous slums in the overcrowded capital of the early industrial revolution.  There Marlott becomes the defender of the poor and disenfranchised.  He also counts the new police force of Robert Peel ( Tom Ward ) and the church as his opponents.

 As a prelude to the second season, TNT Series repeats the inaugural season on December 23.  In the UK, the second season since November 1 runs at ITV Encore.

ITV Closes Drama Channel Encore, Repositions Into Boxset Service

Quote
EXCLUSIVE: British commercial broadcaster ITV is moving into boxsets as it repositions its pay-TV channel Encore into a digital service.

The network is closing the linear Encore channel, which launched in June 2014, but will keep the brand going as video-on-demand service. Encore, which was previously exclusive to Sky, will now be offered to other pay-TV platforms including cable operator Virgin Media.

Since its launch, ITV Encore has commissioned a range of high-end edgy dramas including Harlots (pictured), the prostitution period thriller produced by Alison Owen’s Monumental Pictures,and Rainmark Films’ Sean Bean-fronted The Frankenstein Chronicles.

It also co-produced Houdini & Doyle, the David Shore-exec produced drama that aired on Fox in the US, and aired Swedish noir thriller Jordskott.

The channel also runs a number of repeats of dramas from ITV’s main drama including royal drama Victoria and crime procedural Paranoid.

The move comes as the broadcaster looks to bolster up its digital offerings; the company’s on-demand service ITV Hub grew viewing by over 40% thanks to the success of shows such as Love Island.

An ITV spokesman said: “ITV has decided that the Encore channel will come to an end next spring and from that point we will be focusing on Encore purely as a boxset brand.

“Our great dramas will continue to be available to Sky viewers, but this also gives ITV the opportunity to take Encore on to other platforms, as we continue to develop our pay and distribution business to drive value from our content, making our programmes available to more people on more platforms.”

Episode 3 - Seeing the dead

Quote
Marlott is convinced that Billy Oates and the origin of the fever killing local families will lead him to Lord Daniel Hervey. 

Long Synopsis

As the Pye Street plague intensifies, Marlott is moved by the plight of the poor, left to die in abject poverty without assistance from Church or state. He tenderly conveys the bodies of the young and old to the Communal Burial Pit along with Spence, marking the doors of the dead with a cross.   

Marlott runs into an old foe - the child catcher Billy Oates (ROBBIE GEE), just back in London and working for a travelling show.). Marlott goes to the sideshow’s grounds and threatens Oates.  He covered for Hervey when Marlott was framed for Flora’s murder. He must know Hervey's whereabouts. Oates protests he did his time, he’s been away at sea and hasn’t seen Hervey. The proprietor of the sideshow, Mrs Wild (CLAIRE BENEDICT) has a wary eye on Marlott.

Public pressure over the clergy murders mounts on Peel, the public whipped up by lies printed in the Evening Chronicle. Peel warns Inspector Treadaway (PAUL KENNEDY) to make progress or else they’re all out of a job...

Another church murder victim is discovered in Westminster and this time the police are first on the scene. Sergeant Nightingale has the foresight to remove the body for autopsy before the Parish Watchmen arrive.

Esther works day and night to complete the embroidery on the dress for Frederick’s party, accompanied by a young Ada Lovelace (LILY LESSER).

As Esther and Frederick grow closer, her unspoken grief rises to the surface. Being a widow has made her afraid to live.

Quote
An unexpected encounter with the mysterious Frederick Dipple suggests that Marlott needs to protect his allies, who he realises are increasingly in danger.

Long Synopsis

Spence cannot hold his peace and tells the Pye Street church congregation that their water was deliberately poisoned.

It is the evening of Frederick’s party and Marlott has accompanied Esther there.  The Dean of Westminster goads Peel on his failure to capture the clergy killer. A question mark now hangs over his abilities. The King is unlikely to grant Royal Ascent to his new cemetery bill.  A stung Peel is outmaneuvered.

It was Bean’s presence that enticed Fox, 39, to join the cast as German aristocrat Frederick Dipple — as well as take on a strange, mysterious character.
Sean’s one of my acting heroes,’ says Fox. ‘He’s very unassuming; he’s quiet and lots of powerful actors are like that. You meet them and it’s like, “Oh, you’re just a normal bloke.” Then you see them act and you go, “Oh, you’re a genius actor, I get it.”

‘We made each other giggle a couple of times. He’s lovely. I also like that you don’t know much about Dipple: he could be nice, he could be nasty. I do love a baddie. It must be the shape of my face or that I’m just plain bad — who knows?’

Quote
Marlott's new intelligence brings him closer to a solution and leads him to an apparently deserted tower. However, there are darker and colder dangers inside.

Long Synopsis

Boz confirms what Marlott always believed, Daniel Hervey is alive and well and in London. Together they confront Renquist, who refuses to give them any information, but his lackey Blackwood (CHRIS COGHILL), gives Marlott the location of an abandoned bone house, where Marlott suspects Hervey is at work.  The bone house is owned by Frederick Dipple, and he uses it to store the fashionable luxury, blocks of ice.

Esther visits Dipple the day after the party and a mysterious man addresses her while she waits alone in the ballroom; he can reunite her with her son if she chooses, but it is her choice.

Inspector John Marlott (Sean Bean) of London’s River police operates at an interesting time in forensics history. The start of Season 2 of The Frankenstein Chronicles (2015-current, Seasons 1 and 2 are first and only on Showmax) is set in the year 1830. And that means there are a lot of investigative techniques that thriller and mystery fans take for granted that are, historically, simply not available to him. But that doesn’t make him helpless.

Here are five ways Marlott uses the tricks of the trade in the first half of the 19th Century to investigate his creepy cases.

Netflix Takes Sean Bean Drama ‘The Frankenstein Chronicles’ for U.S., Global Markets (EXCLUSIVE)
Quote
Netflix will take Sean Bean’s cult hit “The Frankenstein Chronicles” to the U.S. and further afield after striking a deal for the U.K.-produced drama series, Variety has learned. The streaming service has taken both six-episode seasons and is expected to run the series as a Netflix Original in the U.S.

“The Frankenstein Chronicles” is a re-imagining of Mary Shelley’s classic novel. Set in 1830s London, Bean (“Game of Thrones”) plays John Marlott, a war veteran and river policeman. Season 1 of the serialized show sees him investigating the case of a corpse made up of body parts from different children, and finding the matter involves senior establishment figures and demonic forces.

The show has been on ITV’s Encore channel in the U.K. but the British broadcaster is closing the linear service and “The Frankenstein Chronicles” will then be one of several series available as a box-set on its catchup service. The show has been well-reviewed, but the ITV Encore pay-TV channel only attracts a modest audience in the U.K. The series is produced by U.K.-based Rainmark Films, and Frank Doelger (“Game of Thrones”) is an executive producer.
 
http://variety.com/2017/tv/news/netflix-sean-bean-the-frankenstein-chronicles-1202637295/



Quote
As mentioned, Variety states Netflix will get the previous two seasons of the series on its platform, and also has the option of developing new episodes for the series if it should choose to do so.

What’s New on Netflix in February
Quote
The Frankenstein Chronicles: Seasons 1 and 2 (2/20)

Those TV fans still reeling at the idea of an entire calendar year (or more) without new episodes of Game of Thrones can perhaps take solace in Netflix’s latest costumed British import, starring Ned Stark himself: Sean Bean. If the name of the series didn’t already tip you off, this series (which originally aired in the U.K. in 2015) centers on reanimated monsters in 19th-century England. Bean plays an inspector determined to discover who is responsible for a washed-up corpse cobbled together from the bodies of several different victims. Overeager English majors (Mary Shelley is a character) and fans of Penny Dreadful, Taboo, Ripper Street, or Peaky Blinders are in for a gory treat.

The Frankenstein Chronicles

The latest cult series from Britain to hit Netflix is The Frankenstein Chronicles, a 19th-century crime 
show that reimagines Mary Shelley’s classic novel. Sean Bean stars as a London inspector looking into the  deaths of children whose corpses appear to be composites of various body parts. Is someone re-animating the dead? Seems likely! Two seasons have aired in the UK and both will be available on Netflix this month. February 20

Most tantalizing of all, however, at least for horror fans, is the much-anticipated arrival of "The Frankenstein Chronicles" on Tuesday, Feb. 20. The six-episode period crime drama became a cult favorite when it aired on British television in 2015, and second six-episode season aired late last year.

It is not, as sometimes claimed, a retelling of Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein," the landmark horror novel published in 1818. But, set in 1827, it does draw inspiration from the classic terror tale, and Shelley appears as a character in the first season (played by Anna Maxwell Martin).

The top-billed star is Sean Bean ("Game of Thrones"), who plays river police officer Inspector John Marlott. He is trying to nab a gang of opium smugglers when a body is discovered near the Thames River.

The corpse is made up of body parts from eight missing children. While Home Secretary Robert Peel (Tom Ward) wants the investigation carried out as quietly as possible, Marlott hears a vagrant boy tell of a "monster" abducting children in the dead of night.

It's a monstrous good fit for Netflix, already haunting subscribers with the acclaimed and eerie likes of "Black Mirror" and "Stranger Things." Put it all together, piece by piece (like Dr. Frankenstein), and you have a bloody powerful reason why other programmers should be plenty scared.

Tech: Netflix’s latest addictive drama is ‘The Frankenstein Chronicles,’ a cult hit that stars ‘Game of Thrones’ actor Sean Bean
Quote
Netflix has found yet another great foreign series in the UK cult hit "The Frankenstein Chronicles," which the streaming service released the first two seasons of on Monday for US and global audiences.

Its first two six-episode seasons aired on ITV's now-defunct Encore channel.

Netflix's decision to pick up the series globally and label it a "Netflix Original" has some critics speculating that the service could carry the series for subsequent seasons if it performs well.

"The Frankenstein Chronicles" has yet to find much traction with US critics a few days after its domestic release, but the series has earned consistent praise in the UK.

The Telegraph called it "bold, eerily effective and chillingly atmospheric," and The Guardian labeled it a "genuinely rather good" series that "offers real rare shivers."

The British drama, The Frankenstein Chronicles dropped two seasons and joined the Netflix Original library in February 2018. Finished all the episodes and want to know when season 3 will drop on Netflix? Here’s what we know about the next season.

If the Brits are good at anything it’s creating great period dramas. This one comes from ITV, a commercial TV network in England. It also produces titles like Downton Abbey, Inspector Morse, and Doc Martin.

Although seasons 1 and 2 only just dropped on Netflix, the series has actually existed since 2015. Season 1 began airing in the UK in late 2015. A year later in the summer, it was announced that the show had been renewed for season 2. Season 2 then aired at the end of 2017 and wrapped up in December 2017.

Has Season 3 been Announced and Release Date?

As is the case with many British shows, they tend to operate on a slower timeline than American shows. Given the way season 2 wrapped up, it does suggest that there’s potential for more episodes but we’ll have to wait for them.

On the timeline between season 1 and 2 that means we’ll have a two-year wait until more episodes of The Frankenstein Chronicles. That means it’s likely going to get renewed later this year. As for release date, expect towards the end of 2019 with the episodes then dropping on Netflix in early 2020.

Why isn’t season 2 of The Frankenstein Chronicles on Netflix UK?

Only season 1 of The Frankenstein Chronicles dropped on Netflix in the United Kingdom. That’s because ITV is still keeping the streaming rights locked onto their ITV Hub platform. We do expect it to come to Netflix there but it won’t be for several months if not a year.

SEAN BEAN IS BACK AS DETECTIVE JOHN MARLOTT
  .
The second season of The Chronicles of Frankenstein (The Frankenstein Chronicles), the A & E debut on March 16 , tells, under the unique perspective Detective John Marlott (Sean Bean, Game of Thornes, The Lord of the Rings), the mysterious events taking place in London in the 1830s.

In the first year of the series, Marlott set out to investigate demonic crimes and experiments that appear to be a consequence of Mary Shelley's work on Dr. Victor Frankenstein and the victims of his experiments, his ultimate creation being the famous Frankenstein monster created with parts of missing children. In the last episode, the detective was murdered and brought back to life - a process that transformed him.

The first season of the series fused in a unique way classic elements of the genres terror and crime. Filmed in Northern Ireland, it featured a large production ranging from characterizations and period clothing to locations and photography, resulting in a captivating and macabre story filled with action, suspense and horror.

The A & E will feature two episodes per week on Fridays from 21.35.

The Frankenstein Chronicles reminds me of the scary movies I used to enjoy watching on television when I was a kid in the 1970s -- more atmospheric horror rather than gruesomely violent like some of today's offerings. I tried to watch a couple episodes of Penny Dreadful on Netflix a few months ago and got turned off very quickly. So I'm definitely keeping my fingers crossed for a third season of John Marlott!
