Seven-part BBC drama series which follows the lives of those in a British penal colony in Australia. In 1787, convicts Elizabeth Quinn (MyAnna Buring), Tommy Barrett (Julian Rhind-Tutt) and pickpocket James Freeman (Russell Tovey) are amongst the first prisoners to be sent across the world to a penal colony in New South Wales. Once there, the 1,000 island inhabitants are forced to adapt to the grim realities of living alongside the brutal military personnel who guard and rule over them. Meanwhile, the relationship of Tommy and Elizabeth is put to the test when she is discovered in the men's living quarters, as the sexes are strictly separated unless married and only soldiers allowed to engage with the colony's female populace
