    Ha - now why doesn't that surprise me.... Out of interest though, in what way was Taboo considered as "a pile of shite", by our good lady wife? Not 'intellectually taxing' enough for her, was it?

    Taboo rocks!

    'Lots of blokes shouting at each other in the dark' was her description.

    I am really enjoying this series, it has a real sense of menace. My new AV amp set to DTS: Neural X produces some really creepy sounds from behind the settee!

    It's not often that I look forward to a programme on TV but as soon as each episode of Taboo is over, I can't wait for the next Saturday.

    Yes, Hardy's softly spoken, yet hauntingly disturbing voice was excellent. Anyone who didn't enjoy Taboo has their taste in their arse!

    Shame the series is over now... Not to worry, one of my other fav TV progs is starting again soon with a new series: Line of Duty
