Superb!
15 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So I stumbled upon this series in my search for another good English show. Let me tell you this one is amazing, Tom Hardy just kills it! And he's not alone, everyone involved seems to know exactly how to drill down and play the core of the kind of people and thinking that was going on back in the 1800's.

Now onto the story, there's a family by the name of Delany, the father and mother are thought to have been insane, the father built up quite a bit of debt in his insanity. Meanwhile the son went off into the military and has thought to have died in Africa. When the father died, the son returned which came not only as a shock to everyone but also as it turns out as some very unwelcome news as he was the sole beneficiary to his fathers holdings. There is also a sister married to what I can only conclude so far is a ladder climber, as he keeps trying everything in his power to get his hands on the Delany estate. And then there's the East India trading company, who's perpetually trying to kill the Son.

What does this all add up to? 10/10 a very interesting show with tons of twists and turns. If dark and gritty is your type of show this is not one to miss.
