    really good
  • Gritty, powerful & resonant 4 centuries later

    By Bearded Bobby
    A BBC production with the quality of actors and settings brings the very early 17th century to life with a bang... or not. Plot spoilers for those who have been asleep for the last 412 years ahead. Kit Harrington and his fellow conspirators have created a great telling of the classic infamous take of catholic persecution & plot to blow up Parliament with the King to boot. Mud & guts a-plenty with loads of characterisation & intrigue. The 3 part telling is just right to flesh out the details while the story ignites into a damp squib. If you like your British history dark and passionate, social and political, then itโ€™s for you. The tale of religion, prejudice, fear and death is as relevant now as any time in the 400 yeas since the event. A glossy Hollywood take this is not... Thank God (which ever you follow, believe or fear or not).
