Tom Hardy created a show with his Da, Ridley Scott and Peaky Blinders showrunner Steve Knight for the BBC and US Cable network FX and it's gothic as hell.

In Taboo, Hardy plays a man returning to 1814 London from Africa "to reclaim the remnants of his father’s shipping empire and seek vengeance on those responsible." It does seem to be about revenge all right. Tom Hardy MAAAAAAAD!

It premieres on January 7h in the UK, well ahead of the US premiere on the 10th. Take that, Donald Trump.

Good to see actors of Hardy's stature continuing to do TV. Marching by the beat of his own drum is Tom.
