James Keziah Delaney has been to the ends of the earth and comes back 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 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.
Taboo is a British period drama about a man believed to be dead whom comes back to London to attend his fathers funeral and avenge his death. He takes over his fathers assets in a disdained business in an era of corruption, greed, satire and politics. The story is a solid one and the characters are well written and conveyed with beautiful interpretation through a strong cast. The story is riddled with mystery and carries a backbone of righteousness. The main character delivers a dark aura... an inner revolution. He's experiencing a battle within, strange things happened to him abroad... He struggles to grasp a calm reality, a steady hand... He must fight the demons within and the demons without. I recommend this show to the period drama connoisseurs.
