Tom Hardy's New TV Show Looks Dark, Violent, And Totally Unmissable

"Forgive me father, for I have indeed sinned..."

The full trailer for Tom Hardy's new TV series Taboo is here and we can definitely see where it got the name.

The eight-episode show tells the tale of a Victorian adventurer who, despite being believed dead, returns to London in possession of stolen African diamonds. While he looks much the same, he's in fact a changed man with a newfound thirst for vengeance...

From the creators of Gladiator (Ridley Scott) and Peaky Blinders (Steven Knight), this dark and violent tale promises to be a something special.

Taboo airs on BBC One on Saturday, January 7.
