Special thanks to Marcelo Guerra & Erin Joyce from Showtime for letting me do this weird idea, everyone at Ardmore Studios, and all of the Penny Dreadful team.

*This video and trip was a collaboration and was co-sponsored by Showtime. I was NOT paid to make it. Thanks again for letting me use your amazing sets and crew!*
