The new program Taboo starring Tom Hardy is due for release this year and FX have released a trailer. Annoyingly, they’ve not made it available for British viewers. I’m not entirely sure why but I’ve found a Spanish version which is in English with subtitles. The program actually looks very good. It has Johnathan Pryce this time not on the receiving end of the East India Company’s wrath, but seemingly dishing it out.
Oona Chaplin is seen briefly in the chapel at the funeral of Delaney’s father and in short cuts throughout suggesting a relatively large role. We see a lot of intrigue, menacing talk and night time activities. I think I’ll give the programme a watch when it comes over the UK. I assume it’s not a UK production due to the lack of UK access to the trailer, but maybe they’re embarrassed about the historical inaccuracies that I mentioned in the previous post.
