Gritty drama Taboo is arriving on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download on 29th May courtesy of Studiocanal.

Executive produced by Ridley Scott, Tom Hardy and Steven Knight, Taboo is an immersive journey into a world of 19th century political and psychological intrigue. Tom Hardy leads an all-star cast that includes Jonathan Pryce, Oona Chaplin, Stephen Graham, Michael Kelly, Jessie Buckley, David Hayman, Tom Hollander, Jason Watkins, Franke Potente, Jefferson Hall, Ed Hogg, Leo Bill, Christopher Fairbank, Richard Dixon, Mark Gatiss, Nicholas Woodeson, Lucian Msamati, and introducing Robert Parker.

Set in 1814, Taboo follows James Keziah Delaney (Tom Hardy), a man who has been to the ends of the earth and returns irrevocably changed. Believed to be long dead, he returns home to London from Africa to inherit what is left of his father’s shipping empire and rebuild a life for himself. But his father’s legacy is a poisoned chalice, and with enemies lurking in every dark corner, James must navigate increasingly complex territories and assemble his very own delinquent league of the damned to avoid his own death sentence. Encircled by conspiracy, murder and betrayal, a dark family mystery unfolds in a combustible tale of love and treachery.

The 8-part series aired on BBC 1 and has already been renewed for a second season. It’s based on an original story by Tom and his father Chips Hardy.

Taboo is created by Steven Knight with Tom Hardy, and Chips Hardy, who is also the show’s consulting producer. Executive producers are Ridley Scott and Kate Crowe for Scott Free London, Tom Hardy and Dean Baker for Hardy Son & Baker, and Steven Knight. The series is produced by Scott Free London and Hardy Son & Baker for BBC One and FX with Sonar Entertainment distributing worldwide outside the UK.
