Trivia

Tom Hardy revealed that he wanted to film some scenes fully nude but was forced to put on a loin cloth, explaining, "You're lucky there was a loin cloth because I didn't want one. It's not a period drama until someone gets naked and covers themselves in blood. You can't have naughtiness like Game of Thrones on the BBC." Even so, Hardy did film some scenes with full frontal nudity and some of these filming pictures were leaked in the media but all such scenes were cut from the final edit of the show. See more »

Cracking start!
8 January 2017 | by (Somerset, UK) – See all my reviews

What a superb start to the series! The acting was top-notch, especially the powerful performance from Tom Hardy (would you expect anything else), and the look of early 19th century London certainly seemed to be spot on for a layman like myself. One point to note, though, in reply to Ian Cunningham's review, is that it was Vancouver Island that was referenced and not the city. The island was given that name some 20-odd years before the events of the show, so no soothsaying was required! Anyway, I'm looking forward to the rest of the series and just hope it manages to maintain the standard throughout, especially considering how high the bar has been set!
