S1 E2: Edmund Talbot continues his hazardous journey to Australia on a ship that is beleaguered with problems as they are borne back into the doldrums. The monotony is shattered when a French warship is seen on the horizon. The ships are cloaked in dense fog as they anxiously await their fate and Edmund is forced to confront the possibility of combat and death. But what emerges is not what is expected. Half mad with fear, with drink, with love and opium, everyone on this leaky unsound hulk is falling apart as the ship itself begins to come apart at the seams.
Starring Charles Dance, Jared Harris
