Two reviews have appeared online for the new series of Banished which begins on Thursday 5th March on BBC 2.

Filmed on location outside Sydney, the beautiful scenery belies a life of dirt, sweat and desperation. However it's not just the unforgiving landscape that conspires against them; tensions run high between the inhabitants confined to this remote outpost. Marston (Rory McCann of Game of Thrones fame) is a brutish bullying blacksmith while callous Major Ross (Joseph Millson) seems to take sadistic pleasure in punishing his charges. The prisoners are very much portrayed as the heroes and while Banished does plunder a few well-worn tropes (the tart with a heart, the code of silence) it's an absorbing tale of survival, mainly due to the quality cast.

“Banished is fictional and doesn’t depict actual events,” explains Simon Hailey, a co-producer on the shoot with RSJ Films. “However, historically, the First Fleet settled in Sydney Cove, which is now Circular Quay, so Sydney always seemed to be the natural spiritual home for the location shoot. Plus our co-production partners, See-Saw Films, are based in Sydney and the local crew is fantastically talented and professional.”
