A new historical drama "Jamestown" is now available on PBS's "Passport" online streaming service. (It's also available on Amazon Video) The show follows 3 women who arrive in Jamestown, Virginia in 1619. More here:

I recognized Sophie Rundle from the short-lived "The Bletchley Circle" series.

Anyone else seen this series during its UK broadcast or watching online here in the US?

I'm watching it - it's entertaining but nothing special. I think they're taking a lot of liberties and at times it feels more like a soap opera than history.
Sophie Rundle was also in Peaky Blinders.
