Three-part drama retelling the story of the gunpowder plot. As Cecil closes in, Catesby seeks help for his rebellion and gathers plotters.

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.
