- Penny Dreadful: Series 3 review by RP
Sad to bid a fond farewell to the monsters that were just misunderstood and seeking redemption. Or were just monsters who wanted to the darkness to take hold and cover the light. Most of all we say goodbye to the nicely quoted poems and songs that were scattered throughout the series. Nicely acted and at times even thought provoking. The well paced final series ended as all good series should with a tear and a 'yes but what about...' Featuring all the characters we thought we knew from books and previous films but clearly didn't. Plus the ever brooding witch in search of a God that she felt had left her but......A thoroughly enjoyable romp then with touches of true pathos and some violence. Well worth the time to watch this excellent but sadly too short series.
