Gunpowder Full Episode Guide

  • On the eve of the 5th of November, Catesby, Fawkes and the plotters load the tunnels below Parliament with barrels of gunpowder. Across the city, Father Garnet is under pressure to reveal Catesby's plot for the good of the Catholic faith. Will the priest be the one to betray Catesby at the eleventh hour?

  • As the king's network of spies close in on them, Catesby and Wintour attempt to raise an army for their plot across mainland Europe. Returning to London with Guy Fawkes in tow, Catesby assembles his gang of plotters for the first time. They know they must act fast, and the plan is formed - they will strike next week, 5 November, at the opening of Parliament.

  • Following the death of Elizabeth I in 1603, King James VI of Scotland succeeds to the English throne. Catholic Robert Catesby devises a treasonous plot to assassinate James, but he needs allies.
