Some historians have shown concern that the East India Company may be portrayed inaccurately,while some economists believe it portrays monopolies realistically.The show has received generally favourable reviews, with critics praising Hardy’s performance.
The East India Company was portrayed as a villain of the era in E. M. Forster’s A Passage to India. Before the broadcast of Taboo, Steven Knight said, “This man, James Delaney, is a deeply flawed and deeply troubled human being. His greatest struggle will be against the East India Company which, throughout the 19th century, was the equivalent of the CIA, the NSA, and the biggest, baddest multinational corporation on earth, all rolled into one self-righteous, religiously-motivated monolith.” This description drew comment from Dr Tirthankar Roy, an economic historian at the London School of Economics, who argued that it would give an excessively negative view of the East India Company. Nick Robins, author of The Corporation That Changed the World, added that the organisation had made a positive contribution but that by the time it was dissolved had long “outlived its usefulness”.
