(1983) is a remake of the original unaired pilot, with the following differences: - The King is not at the crusades, but at home. - Edmond's plot to kill McAngus involves a hanging with a fake rope, not a staged stabbing with a real dagger. The plan backfires in much the same way. - The King, Prince Henry and Baldrick are played by different actors, respectively John Savident
