Ian Rankin Investigates: Dr Jekyll...and Mr Hyde
Ian Rankin investigates Robert Louis Stevenson's The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, a story of a lawyer who analyses strange goings-on between his friend Dr Jekyll and Mr Edward Hyde.
The idea for the novella came to Stevenson in a dream and was first published in 1886.
Ian Rankin explores the origins of the book, and visits Edinburgh, the city that inspired the tale and also talks about the influence the book has had on his own Rebus novels.
