  Your Theories: Episode 2

Eddie and Hyde

We asked for your theories on episode 2, you said:


"If Tom's not a descendent of Jekyll, does that mean he's a descendent of Hyde?"
"When Hyde becomes the 'beast' is that actually him or could it possibly be a third personality? If Tom's not a descendent of Jekyll, does that mean he's a descendent of Hyde?"

Rob Richardson, Doncaster

"The 'mother' is a surrogate mother and Jackman/Hyde is the latest in a series of experiments using DNA taken from the original Jekyll. The organisation is trying to harness Hyde's power and use him as a secret weapon of sorts."

Lianne, London

"Perhaps the group following Hyde are trying to engineer a weapon."
"Tom Jackman could be a descendant of Dr Jekyll even though he had no offspring. Hyde may have had children as he was promiscuous, and safe sex wasn't always practised back then. Is Tom Jackman a descendant of Hyde?

Perhaps the group following Hyde are trying to engineer a weapon - a creature with great strength and speed to be used for their own gain."

Jenny Shaw, Runcorn

"Dr Jekyll had no offspring, but maybe Hyde did, hence where he comes from. His mother may have the same condition, somehow allowing herself to get out of that room."

JR Trinder, Chester

"The government stole the original Jekyll's DNA and genetic data, then somehow recreated it and stored it in a woman's womb for it to grow. The result was Tom Jackman, who was abandoned by his mother. After all, the 'mother' says that she's only his mother somewhat - a surrogate one. When she said "every Jekyll, every Hyde" this process must have been done many times before but all failed. Why create a new one?"

Matthew, Manchester

"The woman claiming to be his mother must have been the host mother for the embryo."
"Tom Jackman's got to be a clone of Jekyll. It would explain everything. The woman claiming to be his mother must have been the host mother for the embryo."

Sion, UK

"Tom's a reincarnation of the original Jekyll, which is a side effect of the potion - when one dies, another is born. This is why he has 'no real mother.'"

Tara, Dorset
