Description

    Set in 1814, Taboo follows James Keziah Delaney, a man who has been to the ends of the earth and comes back irrevocably changed. Believed to be long dead, he returns home to London from Africa to inherit what is left of his father's shipping empire and rebuild a life for himself. But his father's legacy is a poisoned chalice, and with enemies lurking in every dark corner, James must navigate increasingly complex territories to avoid his own death sentence. Encircled by conspiracy, murder, and betrayal, a dark family mystery unfolds in a combustible tale of love and treachery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely worth a few nights in. I enjoyed this series very much, and look forward to Season 2. Set at the time early capitalist Europe was pretty much in the grip of the East India Company, and the colonisation of North America was beginning, the central character, played excellently by Tom Hardy, returns to Regency England from darkest Africa, with a dark past, and potentially darker powers, to claim his recently deceased father's inheritance. The acting throughout is exceptional, and you can almost smell the splendid re-creation of C18th London. Some viewers may find certain aspects of the tale a little weird, but for my money this is one of the best and most interesting dramas to come along for a good while.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Subtitles? I am a huge fan and Hardy is unimaginably good in this fantastic production BUT ....for the SDH or like me mildly hearing diminished, the accents were difficult to determine and follow. I still persevered with the DVD and later watched it on TV (with subtitles). Such a shame for the dvd for such a superior series. Hardy is outstandingly talented and well supported by a superb cast. Light years ahead of most American series and I would put it on a par with their best, "True Detective" season 1.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing Before the credits ran on episode one, the intro scene had me glued to the screen. And so I binged on the entire series. I am now watching it again for the third time. Tom Hardy is absolutely amazing. A true star of this generation. Bring on season two!
