gripping stuff, definitely worth a DVD
5 August 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This show was fantastic, I have only the vaguest memories of it now, but I remember being gripped at the time, because it was like nothing i'd ever seen before. My parents just wouldn't watch sci-fi, so i missed loads of it, but i used to watch it with my brother whenever i could. But it wasn't really sci-fi, it had this medieval quality, maybe because of all the court politics and religious overtones. I had the novelisation too. The Knights crossed swords symbol is still imprinted in my imagination and i think i'd still be scared even now if i met John Woodvine. Fantastic television, definitely worth a DVD.

In fact, if today's telly people looking to counter or capitalise on Doctor Who's current success made more shows like this and less reheated dross like Primeval or Robin Hood the world would be a better place.
