The Crusade: Episode 2 - wonderful historical drama, sheer class
12 August 2014 | by (South Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

Review for all 4 parts:

The Crusade is a four part pure historical adventure starting with The Lion. It is set in 12th Century Palestine, involving King Richard I ('The Lionheart) on crusade and would stand alongside any BBC period drama. It is pure class with a super cast including Julian Glover and Jean Marsh that would grace any Shakespearean stage production. The writer David Whitaker is one of Doctor Who's very best and here the script is beautifully written, intelligent and poetic. The director Douglas Camfield is also one of the series best and he is on top form here as are the regular cast.

The story reaches a peak at Episode 3 which must be one of the finest Who episodes of all time. The other episodes are also top drawer historical drama with exceptional scripts.

Sheer class and an unmissable story.
