Victoria Frankenstein is conducting ground breaking, but highly controversial work in the field of stem cell research and medical biotechnology. She is obsessed with her research, The Universal Xenograft Project (UX), generating a multi-organ bank to create organs which are fit for human transplant. Her obsession is not driven by a desire for fame or adulation, but to save her dying son William. Maddened by grief and desperation Victoria steals a sample of William's blood and introduces it to her research programme. Deep inside her lab, in the confines of a purpose built tank, the cells grow at an extraordinarily accelerated rate. As they diversify, mutate and re-form, a horrified Victoria realises that she has lost control of the experiment; the UX is alive - what has she created? Impossible Pictures (Primeval) and Jed Mercurio (Bodies) give Mary Shelley's classic horror story a fresh new twist, as literature's most infamous creator, Dr Victor Frankenstein, is re-born in the 21st Century as a female biologist in this modern re-working of a tragic tale of obsession.
