Netflix released the first photos of new series Godless yesterday (August 23), giving us our first glimpse at Downton Abbey star Michelle Dockery as a nineteenth-century outlaw.

She plays Alice Fletcher, a widow living in a 1800s New Mexico mining town governed mostly by women, who gives refuge to Roy Goode (played by Skins and This is England star Jack O’Connell) as he flees grizzled outlaw Frank Griffin (the one and only Jeff Daniels).

Here’s Alice and Roy on her ranch:

Here she is, in a very non-Lady Mary type way, brandishing a rifle:

And here comes Frank on horseback, whatever his intentions are, the sitch doesn’t look good:

The cast is rounded out by Law and Order‘s Sam Waterson, Scoot McNairy (Halt and Catch Fire), Nurse Jackie‘s Merritt Weaver, Daredevil and Luke Cage‘s Rob Morgan, and Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Love Actually), who plays the town’s deputy.

The seven-part miniseries comes from Out of Sight duo Steven Soderbergh and Scott Frank, and debuts worldwide on Netflix this November 22.
