Jamestown, Series 1 review

Despite it being advertised for fans of Downtown Abbey – which I had never seen – I was intrigued by the teasers for Jamestown and thought I’d give it a go.

Company: Carnival Film & Television / Sky 1 | Date: 2017 | Cast: Max Beesley, Dean Lennox Kelly, Stuart Martin, Matt Stokoe, Jason Flemyng, Steven Waddington and Burn Gorman.
