Bad title but excellent series
25 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Good as anything on HBO, and deeply tragic. I wish they had gone an Alternate History route, as it's just so brutal to watch at the end. Gunpowder is an odd name, perhaps FAWKES, or Fifth of November. And the key art/poster does not at all represent how good this miniseries is. Think Wolf Hall meets Taboo with no mysticism.
