“It came three years ago” we’re told: a supernatural power that transformed Victorian London by bestowing everyone it touched with inhuman ability.

The ‘afflicted’ are largely women, a group that includes determined clairvoyant Amalia, gifted inventor Penance , Annie, aka Bonfire – capable of propelling jets of flame from her hands – and Lavidia Bidlow, an advocate for the Touched who runs a safehouse called The Orphanage. They’re in constant danger from individuals threatened by their power. But it’s in their difference that their strength resides.

Also featuring Nick Frost as the mercenary Beggar King, Denis O’Hare as a brutal American surgeon, and James Norton as foppish aristocrat Hugo Swan, this 12-part series looks to be an incredibly entertaining genre mash-up – a science-fiction-fantasy-period-drama-action-adventure for the ages. 

And, if you like the idea of the Scooby Gang from Buffy kicking butt in Victorian London, you’ll definitely want to keep reading for our guide on how to watch The Nevers online from anywhere.
