A Sheepish Jekyll An updated version of Robert Stevenson’s Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde into 21 st century standards would be very different from the original story.

The new story will have Dr. Jekyll become a doctor of cloning. Just as the initial potion was meant to separate the good and evil in man, an experimental clone will be created in the new story to exhibit pure good. Naturally, the first (and only) clone experiment will go haywire and end up having the clone become evil. At first, Jekyll will not pick up on the wicked nature of his creation until Hyde manages to get away to commit murder.

In the end, Hyde is arrested for all of his murders and ruins Jekylls reputation....
