I have only recorded it - anyone seen the first episode?
I saw it and thought great, not the usual Saturday night karaoke fare! Fantastic cast. Just confused by one plot point. How can Vancouver Island (Canada) be the gateway to China for the East India Company? I've heard of the North West Passage, but surely the company could just go east from India to get there?
Some info about the reference to the Vancouver Island location:
I watched the first episode last night and I liked it
I like it too. The make up has done well with the depictions of people's complexions of the day.
Two points. Who is the actor who made the first appearance in the second episode - some sort of secretary to Jonathan Pryce,whom Pryce threatened to sack in two days.
And whenever I see Jonathan Pryce in his grey wig/hair,I am seeing the late John Laurie.
Very unusual, dark and moody. Tom Hardy gives a great performance as always. Enjoying it, but not sure where it is going. Seems there is a relationship between Delaney, Nootka Sound, The East India Company, and possibly slavery? There is a secret someone is desperate to keep hidden, and desperate men do desperate things.
