Spooky Victorian TV shows or films - Mattias Westlund - 07-25-2019

I've been in a 19th-century mood lately and I can really recommend The Alienist. Solid actors and characters and a very atmospheric setting. It's kind of like Sherlock Holmes meets CSI in 1800's America. The Limehouse Golem is a great twist on the Ripper mystery. And The Frankenstein Chronicles takes the Mary Shelley idea and runs wild with it (while weaving the lady in question into the story). Ironically, Sean Bean dies then comes back to life!

What have I missed in the same vein?

The only thing I could think of that might fit would be Dickensian, an original story set in a Victorian city in which all, or most, of Dickens' characters are present. The two main plot threads are the Havishams' and Inspector Bucket exploring the murder of Jacob Marley.

Good tip, thanks! Never heard of that particular one.
