Not sure when non-UK folk will get it, but it airs on BBC One tomorrow:


Just out of interest, is there a long wait between BBC shows airing here and then overseas?

I've not seen many adaptations of the Gunpowder Plot. I shall give this one a view. The BBC does invest in good drama and they have impressed me in recent years.

Seems interesting. There is typically a delay for me as I have to wait for British stuff to show up on Netflix. But I believe there is a delay before BBC America gets new BBC stuff, at least there was back when I had cable.

DOCTOR WHO has a same day delay of a matter of hours. Everything else depends on which channel is showing which program.

It was good,but i have read that there were a lot of
complaints about the brutality,surely we shouldn`t
whitewash what actually happened in a post watershed
historical drama?
Also you can watch all 3 episodes in one hit on BBC i-
Player.

Complaints about brutality in a programme about the Gunpowder Plot?!

The medical profession really needs to define "offended at a programme" as a medical illness.

What puzzles me,is that there was a warning BEFORE the
programme,so if you`re of a delicate sensibility,why
watch? There are always warnings before shows now that
they contain `Flashing images` so if you watch and have
a seizure,it`s your own fault,no need to complain! I
have read numerous media stories of students being
warned that Shakespeare might be too gory for
them,forensics students being warned they may be upset
by the sight of dead bodies!Errrr,no shit Sherlock!

It pisses me off.

The show aired after 9pm. It's about the Gunpowder Plot. Were they expecting MY LITTLE PONY?

I think some people just like to be offended.

Coming soon: complaints about nudity seen in a pornographic film.

I thought it was a very decent BBC period drama, well produced and visually realised. Yes, it was brutal in places and pretty bleak but as others have commented what exactly did people expect? It was the BBC not the Disney version.  I will certainly tune in for the remaining eps. I was surprised to see Liv Tyler involved though, guess my licence fee is going somewhere ....

I know some shows air either concurrent or soon after the UK on BBC America.

GUNPOWDER is one show I hope they do air over here. Though I'll likely have to DVR it or watch it on On Demand, depending on when it airs. (If it's Wednesdays, it'll definitely be On Demand.)
