  • Hello, I'm Jonny. Today's story is set in 19th century London and tells the story of

  • a respectable gentleman who has a curious relationship with a violent and detestable man.

  • The story begins with a man called John Utterson - he's a lawyer - and he's trying to sound

  • out a friend about an odd situation he's seen. He saw another man, called Mr Hyde, trampling

  • on a young girl. He compensated the girl's family for this by paying them with a cheque

  • but this was signed by another man called Dr Jekyll.

  • Strange. By the sound of it, Dr Jekyll's will has also been changed so Mr Hyde will inherit

  • everything. John Utterson concludes that the evil Mr Hyde is blackmailing Dr Jekyll and

  • goes to see Jekyll - but he sounds annoyed and doesn't want to discuss it.

  • Later on, a man's body is found and it is thought that Mr Hyde is the murderer. John helps the

  • police by taking them to Mr Hyde's apartment where they find the murder weapon - a walking

  • cane that John had given to Dr Jekyll as a gift. John doesn't like the sound of this

  • and wants to find out more.

  • Then for a while, there's not a sight or sound of Mr Hyde but then one day, one of John's

  • friends suddenly dies but before he does he gives John a letter saying it must not

  • be opened until Dr Jekyll's death.

  • This is a bit of a mystery but I'll leave it there for now. Join me again soon to find

  • out what happens next. Bye for now.
