Episode(s): 1, 2
Series: 8 x 60min

An epic romantic adventure based on the life of Billy the Kid, also known as William H. Bonney – from his humble Irish roots and his early days as a cowboy and gunslinger In the American frontier, to his pivotal role in the Lincoln County War and beyond.

Our take

After creating and writing The Tudors and Vikings, Michael Hirst is back with a naturalistic take on the young Billy the Kid, setting the story in the migratory context of the American West. Tom Blyth (The Gilded Age) spreads his wings with the role of Billy, performing with a unexpected physique and sensitivity.
