The Frankenstein Chronicles

2015

The Frankenstein Chronicles (2015) stars Sean Bean in the role of detective John Marlott.

In the first series, Marlott uncovers a corpse made up of the parts of 8 missing children. In the second series, Marlott - brought back to life by Daniel Hervey (Ed Stoppard) - solves the mystery of who is poisoning the water and cutting the hearts out of murdered people.

There are, of course, since the series is set in 1827, homeless children in the show. There are also adults who grew up in the Foundling Hospital, eg, Joseph Nightingale (Richie Campbell) and his friend, Queenie Pickett (Kerrie Hayes).
