Encircled by conspiracy, murder and betrayal, a dark family mystery unfolds in a combustible tale of love and treachery in the new drama series created by Tom Hardy and Steven Knight, and starring Hardy himself.
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.
Starring Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road), Jonathan Pryce (Game of Thrones), Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones), Stephen Graham (Boardwalk Empire), Michael Kelly (House of Cards), Tom Hollander (The Night Manager), Franka Potente (Run Lola Run), and Mark Gatiss (Sherlock).
