Gunpowder (BBC One) review

Just in time for bonfire night, BBC One has a brand new period drama for us in the form of Gunpowder – the under-told story of the attack on parliament in 1905 that would inspire the burned effigies and fireworks we enjoy (bonfire night is quite weird, isn’t it?) annually today.
