Tom Hardy took his idea for Taboo to his father, writer Chips Hardy, who was initially reluctant to be involved, but finally acquiesced and agreed to flesh out the concept.
Hardy also plays Thomas Delaney, an enigmatic character who unexpectedly returns to England in 1814 to bury his father and lay claim to a piece of land on the West Coast of America called Nootka Sound. Delaney, thought to have been lost at sea after spending time in Africa, soon becomes embroiled in a dispute between the American government and the nefarious East India Company over his inherited stretch of land. Set over eight hour-long episodes, Taboo features exceptional performances from its cast, a compelling plot line with more twists and turns than a drunk on a rope ladder, and quality production values to rival Game of Thrones.
