A few days ago we got a look at the first trailer for Batman: Gotham By Gaslight, the upcoming animated adaptation of Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola’s 1989 Elseworlds tale, and now Warner Bros. has unveiled the official synopsis and details of the bonus features for the next entry in the DC Universe Animated Original Movies line.

Batman: Gotham By Gaslight takes place at the turn of the century as America’s continued industrial revolution is to be showcased at a World’s Fair hosted by Gotham City. But while the world prepares to witness the glittery glory of Gotham’s technological advances, there is a killer loose in the city’s darkest shadows. Preying on the city’s women, this killer is as precise as he is cruel. As Police Commissioner James Gordon tries to calm the fears of Gotham’s citizens regarding the butcher called Jack the Ripper,

Taboo episode 8 review

Louisa Mellor Feb 25, 2017

Even if Taboo’s finale makes barely a lick of sense, it certainly provides a spectacle…

Cheerio to James Delaney, currently sailing with a ragtag crew to Portugal to liaise with an American spy. Why he’s doing that is anybody’s guess. Why James Delaney has done any of this is anybody’s guess.

Prior to the shoot-out, this finale was representative of the series as a whole. A half-dead Delaney stalked around London taking care of business by having gnomic, sometimes violent conversations with friends and foe, rarely allowing us the privilege of knowing whatever the hell was going on. The episode was designed to show off our lead as a strategic master of Sherlockian guile.

Taboo Season 1 Episode 7 Review: Revelations

East India thinks they've won, but it's James Delaney who appears to have the upper hand, as always.

There were so many Huge reveals in Taboo Season 1 Episode 7 that I barely know where to start, so let's get right to it.

Helga was so convinced that Delaney killed poor Winter that she dimed out Delaney to East India, but of course she's wrong.

I don't think anyone out there really thought Delaney did the deed, but it's good to know that it was the evil East India responsible for it.

And it was heartbreaking to see Winter join the cast of dead spirits that haunt Delaney: poor guy.

Lorna is really feeling Delaney now, but he seems resigned to the fact that he is damned, and doesn't want to take anyone else with him.

Lorna: I know you didn't do it.

Delaney: And how would you know that? nt] I very well may have.

Taboo episode 7 review

Taboo’s lead character remains the frustrating blank space at the centre of an otherwise appealing show…

This review contains spoilers.

See related Bethesda explains why Doom 4 was scrapped

For weeks I’ve waited to see James Delaney on the back foot - to watch him put under enough pressure that he finally cracks and reveals the human being inside that inscrutable outer shell. Goodbye to that hope. If twelve hours of torture in the Tower of London doesn’t break Delaney, nothing will. Cuts and bruises aside, he remained as in-control and unreadable in the torturer’s chair as he’s been since he landed in London. In-control, unreadable and sadly, dull.

Taboo’s lead is its weakest link. Somehow under and over-written at the same time, Delaney is all over the place. Are we supposed to love him? Hate him? Love to hate him? Aiming for moral complexity,

Taboo Season 1 Episode 6 Review: Secrets

I never thought I'd see it, but by the end of this episode James Delaney was a hot mess!

A terrible family secret was revealed in Taboo Season 1 Episode 6, which set forth a series of events that shook Delaney to his core and, of course, caused carnage to follow. 

Add to that the Honorable East India basically declaring war on Delaney, and we have a great setup to the final 2 episodes. Oh, and did I mention we had not one but Two shocking deaths? This one was Very dark, folks.

I like that Brace finally had enough, and told Delaney the real deal about his cray cray mum. Brace definitely has a yard of guts to stand up to the beast, or maybe he just doesn't care anymore. 

Brace is usually used for comic relief, but he is excellent in this scene, finally telling Delaney the secret that he probably

Taboo Season 1 Episode 5 Review: Rule Of Thumb

Why, oh why don't these people get it by now? You do Not f*ck with James Delaney. Not. Ever.

There were quite a few shocks on Taboo Season 1 Episode 5, including the opening scene. We got want we wanted, sort of: a beautifully shot duel scene, but with a twist.

I Really wanted to see Thorne bite it, but alas, we'll have to wait until another day.

As satisfying as it would have been to see Delaney waste Thorne, it is actually more in keeping with the theme of the show to have Delaney spare him.

My apologies - that was an excellent shot. I can only assume that your second is a Company man, since he failed to load a ball in your pistol. It would appear that my life is more precious than yours. Good day.

Unlike alternative methods of dispatching one’s enemy in nineteenth century England—your disembowelling and your throat slitting—duelling turns out to involve a surprising amount of red tape. A doctor, a lawyer and an officiator must be present, each dueller has to bring a buddy, start from an allotted spot and, after a polite exchange of bullets, cease firing. There’d be less bureaucracy involved in taking out a tracker mortgage. Whether rowing through pestilential fog to a between-parishes island owned by a gypsy in a top hat is also regulation or merely an

Taboo Season 1 Episode 4 Review: League of the Damned

The gauntlet has been thrown down: will Delaney accept? What the hell do you think?

In the action packed Taboo Season 1 Episode 4, the big challenge of a duel from that uber dick Thorne was the crescendo, but we'll have to wait a week to see if Delaney takes the bait.

I challenge James Delaney to a duel. At dawn. To the death. Do you accept? Do You Accept?

Thorne Permalink: I challenge James Delaney to a duel. At dawn. To the death. Do you accept? Do You Accept? Added: January 29, 2017

I expect he will, and we will have a magnificently shot duel scene at dawn, in a fog shrouded field, in beautiful slow motion. But this isn't a lock by any means.

Given how the Americans have kindly offered to waste Thorne, Delaney might just take them up on it.

Just think about that for a minute. If the Americans do the deed,

'Taboo' vs. 'Frontier': Who Wins the Battle of TV Tough-Guy Dramas?
Television and movie producers have a weird habit of doubling-up on big ideas, delivering two projects with more or less the same basic concept at roughly the same time. For no apparent reason, we'll get hit with a couple of "giant space rock threatens to destroy the Earth" blockbusters in the same summer; or a pair of "behind the scenes at a late-night comedy series" in the same fall TV season. So perhaps it's not that odd that FX and Netflix are about to serve up competing historical adventures, both

A tea trading monopoly? That’s what all this trouble is over? James Delaney has been fighting assassins, getting stabbed in the gut and making enemies in Regency society’s upper ranks all because he wants to open the UK’s first branch of Whittard.

Well, at least we know.

Aside from riling up everyone he crosses paths with, Delaney’s motivations have been tricky to discern until now. Realising that he’s essentially a Dragon’s Den contestant trying to play the Americans off the British for the biggest investment in his China-based start-up makes him a more accessible lead.

Taboo Season 1 Episode 2 Review: Rogue's Gallery

We got some answers in addition to questions, questions, and more questions. Plus a nasty cliffhanger to boot!

In a crackling, suspenseful Taboo Season 1 Episode 2, we start to see a few dents in the mighty armor of James Delaney, and the show is much the better for it. 

I never expected to end the episode with Delaney collapsed on the cobblestones, a pig sticker in his gut, and I was pleasantly surprised, frankly.

Up to this point, he was a one man apocalypse, the unstoppable force.

I said in my Taboo premiere review that it would make the show much more compelling to have him a little vulnerable at times. Well, that's just what we got. 

This episode made me think of Delaney as a 19th century version of Clint Eastwood's "Man With No Name" character from his spaghetti western days, assembling a team of slimy minions to do his bidding,

How to Identify the Four 'Peak Tom Hardy' Types
He's created a series of performances that have taken advantage of his intensity, his brutish physique and his way around a multi-syllable sentence – and now, Tom Hardy has somehow created a role for himself that feels more Tom Hardy than almost anything else he's done. In Taboo, the new FX series the actor co-created with father Chips Hardy and Peaky Blinders showrunner Steven Knight, he plays gruff protagonist James Delaney, an early 19th-century explorer who returns home to London to find out he's inherited land sought after by the East India Company.

Taboo review – Tom Hardy brings extra swagger to Regency London

The BBC’s new historical drama is seductive and atmospheric, if completely baffling. Plus: Freddie Flintoff makes for an affable travel companion

Ah yes, we didn’t get to Taboo (BBC1, Sunday) last week because of The Voice and How Do You Solve a Problem Like Gary Barlow (Aka Let It Shine). And because I wasn’t entirely sure what it was all about or what the hell was going on. Accompanied by a spooky soundtrack, James Delaney (Tom Hardy, being menacing with his voice and the bottom half of his face because the top half was invisible in the shade of his top hat) rode into Regency London on a white horse and put the fear of God into people.

Only his half-sister Zilpha (Oona Chaplin) seemed pleased to see him, maybe because she also used to be his girlfriend; I assumed the boy was the son/nephew and

Taboo Season 1 Episode 1 Review: The Ghost

If you want to see Tom Hardy in full on Victorian beast mode, then boy, is this the show for you!

There are a few words than can be used to describe Taboo Season 1 Episode 1: weird, strange, intense, and inscrutable, among others. 

Here, Tom Hardy does what he does best: he scowls, he grunts, he glares, he looms, he intimidates. God love him, he has the badass act down Cold. 

The start of the show reminded me of Revelations: "And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death. And hell followed with him."

Hardy's James Delaney arrives to 1814 London like a one man apocalypse, and heaven help anyone who gets in his way.

Taboo Review

You only need to watch about 90 seconds of Taboo to realize that it obviously has Peaky BlindersSteven Knight behind it. Give it another five minutes and it’s hard to keep from expecting Cillian Murphy to walk around a corner. For that show’s cult following, the sell is probably over with the trailer. If grimy period pieces that serve as showcases for the costume department and feature characters that give off an air that suggests they might start slaughtering people at any moment are your bag, you know all you need to.

Those who need more will find anything they might be looking for in Tom Hardy‘s eerie depiction of a man who returns from Africa to take over his father’s business. James Delaney is a man with a checkered past, who left for Africa ten years ago and spent much of that time presumed dead.
