| Wolfe Hall + Taboo = Gunpowder
The BBC do love a costume drama. They've been doing them since the dawn of television and to be fair on the whole they do them very well. Whilst Gunpowder may not reach the heights of some of the corporations finest work, it's still a well made combination of historical facts with some nice early 17th century scenes of brutal torture, death and violence. Kit Harrington excels as the plot mastermind Robert Catesby and Tom Cullen tries his best to be Tom Hardy as the menacing Guy Fawkes. Overall a well made well acted piece which at three episodes does not outstay it's welcome. Unlike those who let off fireworks beyond the date this show is based on!
