The Frankenstein Chronicles

Not John Marlott

Series 2 - Episode 2 Not John Marlott



The Frankenstein Chronicles might be hokum, but it's jolly good, rip-roaring hokum, oozing with Victorian gothic atmosphere and a heavily menacing air. Sean Bean is great as surly, damaged, decent ex-cop and now fugitive John Marlott, whose vivid nightmares haunt his darkest hours. Marlott is wanted for murder and has so far dodged the gallows. 

But hard-working honest copper Nightingale (Richie Campbell) is on his trail as Marlott is suspected of a double murder.


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.
