The idea of revolutionary science is so abhorrent and taboo that Mr Utterson cannot grasp such ideas, he represents the majority of Victorian ideals about being respectful and religious.

Quite a convoluted question... GCSE questions are usually a bit clearer than this.

I would just focus on the idea of reputation:

- the professional nature of the principle characters
- how Hyde is the opposite (base, animalistic, uncaring of reputation)
- how Jekyll creates Hyde in order to fulfil his dark fantasies and maintain his reputation

Good points so far and I agree with Gilwern; it does seem like a complex question for GCSE. However, we must be prepared for every eventuality. I'd develop an analysis of Utterson as the archetype of the Victorian gentleman: it would be rude to challenge Jekyll.

“My good Utterson,” said the doctor, “this is very good of you, this is downright good of you, and I cannot find words to thank you in. I believe you fully; I would trust you before any man alive, ay, before myself, if I could make the choice; but indeed it isn’t what you fancy; it is not so bad as that; and just to put your good heart at rest, I will tell you one thing: the moment I choose, I can be rid of Mr. Hyde. I give you my hand upon that; and I thank you again and again; and I will just add one little word, Utterson, that I’m sure you’ll take in good part: this is a private matter, and I beg of you to let it sleep.”

Utterson reflected a little, looking in the fire.

“I have no doubt you are perfectly right,” he said at last, getting to his feet.
