The Kill

Episode 2 of 8

Under the rule of the followers of Maya, Tumanbay has become a place of fear. Gregor attempts to survive the regime, while Manel is drawn to the rebel cause.

Under the brutal rule of the puritanical followers of Maya, Tumanbay, once the most powerful and wealthy city on earth, has become a place of fear and suspicion. While Gregor (Rufus Wright) attempts to survive the regime by collaborating and demonstrating his loyalty, his niece Manel (Aiysha Hart) is drawn to the rebel cause.

Both are playing a deadly game.

Tumanbay is created by John Dryden and Mike Walker and inspired by the Mamluk slave rulers of Egypt.
