Trivia

Tom Hardy stated he wanted James Delaney to be an amalgam of different classical characters, encompassing traits of Bill Sikes, Heathcliff, Sherlock Holmes, Hannibal Lecter, Oedipus, Marlow from Heart Of Darkness, Rodrigo Mendoza in The Mission (1986) and Don Lope de Aguirre in Aguirre, the Wrath of God (1972). Hardy said: "I wanted James Delaney to be like a classical hero, a man of action, but someone who also has a depth of depravity to him and this great ability to say 'fuck off'." See more »

Just Excellent
29 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

Excellent!

Without revealing to much I just want to say this: Acting is very entertaining and believable. Story is surprising and keeps you on your toes. It's definitely not for the faint of hart, seeing there's some blood and gore. The series is called Taboo and this really comes alive thanks to some good acting from Tom Hardy and Oona Chaplin.

And last but not least it's got ASS (Action, Suspense and a Strong story)!!

There's nothing more to say, just watch it and be pleasantly surprised. I was!
