  • Summary

  • London, 1728, The Golden Age of Piracy might have drawn to a close but in England there is a new breed of land-pirates, chasing coaches, fame, fortune and headlines.

    It is three years since Anne Bonny crossed the ocean, believing that her beloved Mary Read perished in prison. But even death can’t keep these lovers apart. Mary tracks Anne to a London awash with pleasures and change – full of coffee shops, Molly Houses, and the raucous tunes of the Beggars Opera. London is a world away from the High Seas, but the lawless highways offer new adventures, and new enemies. Anne and Mary must face notorious highwayman, Dick Turpin, as well as the repressive structure of a city where the upper classes retain the upper hand.

    Written by Carina Rodney.

    Directed by Kate Saxon, with sound design and score by Matthew Slater.

    Starring Erin Doherty as Mary and Michelle Fox as Anne.

amazing

i was hooked from the outset. the characters came alive as did the locations and period- so very well done.
id been sad when i finished 'black sails' on tv which featured the characters, delighted to find 'hell cats' and delighted again to find this sequel.... if only there might be a third!??

Favourite series on Audible

I hadn’t realised a second series had been made . It’s a little shorter than the first one, but it is a very enjoyable adventure again with great actors that really bring the characters to life . Please do series 3!

fact meets fiction

Creating a work of fiction with people who actually existed is never easy and this story demonstrates that fact. Although the lead actresses put in great performances, the story stretches belief to it's limits. The relationship dynamics of the two protagonists is universal and well written. The inclusion of Dick Turpin seemed uneccessary to me, the story would have been better served if it focused on the two women heading towards doom as highway women.

The novelty has worn off for me

I enjoyed HC1 but this got a little too predictable for my tastes. I guess I'm getting a bit jaded with the whole history through a 21C filter thing. I also found some of the characterisations a little thin: no fault of the actors just the material that they had to work with.

not for me

I pushed myself through the first one but I just can't get into this one, to much of what somebody wants history to be crammed into what could be a really enjoyable story. The actors are all brilliant

A bawdy treat

I enjoyed HC1 and this sequel didn’t disappoint. The performances are excellent and bring this reframing of history story to life. Here’s hoping for HC3
