MARVEL’S MIS­TER HYDE

Stan Lee su­pervil­lain, who de­buted in 1963, is no re­la­tion to Jekyll, but rather an amoral bio­chemist inspired by Steven­son’s story. Kyle Ma­cLach­lan re­cently played a ver­sion of the char­ac­ter in Agents Of SHIELD.

DR JEKYLL AND SIS­TER HYDE

Brian Cle­mens scripted this 1971 Ham­mer film, which saw Ralph Bates trans­form into Bond girl Mar­tine Beswick. “Warn­ing! The sex­ual trans­for­ma­tion of a man into a woman will ac­tu­ally take place be­fore your very eyes!” teased the poster.

THE STRANGE CASE OF DR JEKYLL AND MISS OS­BOURNE

This 1981 film by Wa­le­rian Borowczyk, di­rec­tor of La Bête, is typ­i­cally idio­syn­cratic. Not only is Hyde played by a dif­fer­ent ac­tor, but the trans­for­ma­tion in­volves Jekyll thrash­ing about in a bath full of chem­i­cals.

JEKYLL

James Nes­bitt played a de­scen­dant of the good doc­tor in this six- part 2007 se­ries by Steven Mof­fat, whose wise­crack­ing Hyde in many ways an­tic­i­pated what the writer went on to do with Mo­ri­arty and Missy.
