The familiar tellings we have come to know as Jekyll and Hyde very rarely, if at all, do justice to the original story. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is not a horror or monster story, but more of a psychological crmie drama — a cautionary tale about the evil within each of us and what would happen if we confronted our own duality … the good and evil within.
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is really just as much the story of Gabriel John Utterson, a lawyer and good friend of Dr. Henry Jekyll. More importantly, Utterson is a Victorian Gentleman, who is guided by a chivalric-like code to remain loyal to his friends and maintain his status in society.
It is loyalty that drives Utterson to play detective in an effort to protect Jekyll from the malicious and scheming Mr. Hyde. Eventually, Utterson finds himself introduced to a world that he is neither ready to enter nor accept.
