A celebrated detective battles a plot to assassinate Queen Victoria. A great cast, handsome production values and enthusiastic playing can’t save this mess, seemingly compiled from extensive on-set improvisations rather than a script. Inevitably, some fine moments, but this is a skit stretched to 90 minutes.
In late-Victorian London, a young mother is troubled by what might be a poltergeist. Handsome but odd cod-Freudian drama which flirts with fantasy, Jekyll & Hyde-isms, and unlocked sexuality in all kinds of ways.
