The BBC have today released promotional pictures for the second episode of Taboo, a new eight part series starring Tom Hardy and produced by Ridley Scott. The series sees Hardy play James Delaney, who has returned from Africa to find his father dead and the East India Company attempting to take his land. The second episode of the series will be broadcast on Saturday the 14th of January on BBC One from 9:15 to 10:15pm. You can find promotional pictures and the second episode’s synopsis below:
While the city views him with hostility and suspicion, James begins to enlist allies in unlikely places and with irregular loyalties. At the reading of his father’s will an unexpected arrival threatens to disrupt his plans, and it’s not long before the poisonous nature of his new-found inheritance is finally revealed.
Not only must he face down two of the mightiest powers in London, but there are equally complicated matters much closer to home. And then there is his past, which will not be denied.
