dc.description.abstract Frankenstein; or , the Modern Prometheus has been widely reinterpreted in cinematographic adaptations. Penny Dreadful , a 2014 - 20 1 6 American - British production, has done more than a mere innovative version of the novel, since it has mixed the story with other famous classic s and new characters. The rejection of the Monster and the lack of affection by the Doctor is seen in all adaptations, but this production goes beyond by presenting a more ambit ious Frankenstein creating new m onsters and perfecting his technique. As Franke nstein has been reanalysed, this paper studies the survival of t he sceptical ideas and messages of Mary Shelley’s novel in Penny Dreadful . Ultimately, this comparative analysis tries to establish an explanation about the numerous similarities between both works referring to the Doctor’s relationship with the Creature, his role as overreacher and how the Monster’s persona changes in relation to society, as well as a reasonable justification for the differences presented. ca
