The classic tale relates how Dr Jekyll, fascinated by the duality in his own nature, discovers a drug which isolates the evil side of his character and creates a corrupt alter-ego he calls Mr Hyde. Gradually Hyde gains control as the drug loses its power of restoration. The psychological conflict between good and evil is played out before our eyes - but the fight is not black and white, for as Jekyll is the brake on Hyde's extremities of vice, so is Hyde the check on the excesses of Jekyll's virtue.
