If you like the Tripods and Dr Who,Knights of God is for you!

Recently watched this again from a copy made at the time from TV in 1987 and was pleasantly surprised how gripping the story is. If you enjoy spotting the durable British character actors who seem to appear in everything made back in the 70's & 80's,Knights of God will keep you watching.

Would love to see it released on DVD,I don't know whether TVS still exists or was swallowed up by ITV at some point. However I fear it had limited appeal when first broadcast ,over looked on Sunday afternoons,which is a shame, because its definetely worth a second sight as they say!
