The Myth Makers: Part 2 - Historical story of high quality
19 August 2014 | by (South Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

Review for all 4 parts:

This is a four part story beginning with Temple of Secrets.

I was very pleasantly surprised how good this adventure is after reading reviews likening it and even unfavourably comparing it to The Romans, a story I found very disappointing. Those reviews are wrong in my opinion as this story is far more successfully executed with a finely balanced mixture of humour and drama which is carried off very well. The cast are on good form and the story has sufficient interest to maintain top quality across all four episodes.

The story is set in the Trojan Wars and plays about amusingly with the myths of the time surrounding the 'Trojan Horse' etc.

All in all a great success, yet again showing historical adventures can be some of the best.
