Gunpowder

About

Starring Kit Harington, GUNPOWDER is a three-part thriller based on the real-life 17th century events that led to Guy Fawkes Day.

Originally commissioned by BBC One in the U.K., GUNPOWDER stars Kit Harington as Robert Catesby, who was the driving force behind the Gunpowder Plot in 1605 London. A committed Catholic at a time when Protestant England persecutes Catholics relentlessly, Catesby’s refusal to abandon his religion brings him to the edge of financial, social and psychological ruin. Mark Gatiss plays Robert Cecil, King James’ spymaster, who directs efforts to hunt down, torture and kill priests, while rank-and-file Catholics are subject to oppression and the loss of their property.
