‘Essentially Heart of Darkness on ice…with rare style, intelligence and detail…riveting’ - Time Magazine

‘Stark, gorgeous, violent, frightening and uplifting’ - Newsweek

‘Dark and bleak…[with] a lovely, nuanced performance from Harris…it will continue to haunt me for a while’ - ★★★★ - The Guardian

‘Well worth your time… highly effective horror that does not hold back on the creepiness or scares’ - ★★★★ - Heat

Chilling…a thumping pair of opening episodes lays the groundwork skilfully…terrific... - Sunday Telegraph

‘The tradition of the handsome, impeccably cast period drama gets a horror makeover…spectacular…gorgeous…immersive…richly detailed…easily one of the most downright scary shows to hit TV in years’ - Collider

Exec-produced by Ridley Scott, horror-period-drama The Terror features a fantastic line-up of British acting greats including BAFTA® winner Jared Harris (Chernobyl, The Crown) and Golden Globe® nominee Tobias Menzies (The Crown, Game of Thrones), as the crew of a real life Royal Naval expedition in 1847 that ventures deep into the Arctic. Following its run on BBC Two, this gripping thriller with a horror edge is set for its Blu-ray, DVD and digital debut on 3 May 2021 from Acorn Media International.

Based on Dan Simmons’ best-selling novel, the 10-part series has a Rotten Tomatoes score of 93%, and has been lauded as ‘A fascinating step forward for the survival-horror genre…genius’ (The Atlantic).

1847, the crew of a real life Royal Naval expedition led by three captains, Sir John Franklin (Ciaran Hinds – Game of Thrones, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Francis Crozier (Harris) and James Fitzjames (Menzies), is sent to find the Arctic's fabled treacherous Northwest Passage, but instead discovers a monstrous polar bear-like predator, a cunning and vicious Gothic horror that stalks the ships in a desperate game of survival.

However, it soon becomes clear that that's just the beginning of their troubles. As things worsen and civilised behaviour disintegrates in favour of survival at any cost, the crew must simultaneously battle the elements, the supernatural and eventually – themselves. The captains make contact with a mute Inuit woman, Lady Silence (Nive Nielsen – The New World, Togo), who lives as an outcast from her tribe but still follows their old religion…can they trust her to help them, or will she only add to The Terror
