Programme synopsis c/o BBC Press Release
17th century thriller written by Ronan Bennett starring Kit Harington, Peter Mullan, Mark Gatiss and Liv Tyler
BBC One today announces a brand-new three part drama series Gunpowder developed by Ronan Bennett,
The series will star Kit Harington (Game of Thrones), Peter Mullan (Top of the Lake), Mark Gatiss (Sherlock), and Liv Tyler (Lord Of The Rings), and will be directed by J Blakeson (The Disappearance of Alice Creed).
Every year on November 5 the English mark the discovery of the Gunpowder Plot in London in 1605 with bonfires and fireworks. It is often called Guy Fawkes Day because many people believe – erroneously – that the plot was devised by Guy Fawkes.
However, while Fawkes played a pivotal role, the man who dreamed up the plot and was its driving force was Robert Catesby (Harington), a 30-year old Warwickshire gentleman.
