This dramatization of Mary Shelley's novel follows the outline of the novel's action pretty closely. But some odd choices are made about the details. Victor Frankenstein, for example, is a womanizer and a murderer. (The tragedy of the servant Justine is heightened by portraying her as Victor's mistress; and as the last step in building his creature, Victor kills his colleague Waldman and takes his brain.) It's an example of how one story can fit another's template and yet be completely different in tone and meaning.
It's all well acted, of course. Allowing for the differences, Darvill is a great Victor. The music is superb, and the download includes what appears to be the complete score as an appendix. Also (as usual) includes interviews with participants in the production.
