Series three, again written by Bill Gallagher
(Lark Rise to Candleford), who is also executive producer, charts the early
days of the first British settlers in America. With trade booming and the
tobacco farms thriving, the settlers’ pioneering aspirations soon clash with
the realities of creating a new nation on foreign soil.

expansion onto Pamunkey land, and with politics rife in the air, the idealism
of the New World is tested. As Yeardley’s thirst for power and
wealth grows, there are far reaching consequences. And how far will
Native American chief Opechancanough go to protect his land?

offers huge emotion as well as thrilling adventure, and we can’t wait for it to
be shared with our audience. We would like to say a huge thank you to Bill
Gallagher for such a compelling story, inspired by a remarkable piece of
history, and to the team at Carnival, and the exceptional cast that have
