Storyline

In the year 2020, Britain is divided into North and South. The Royal Family has been deposed and in its place rule the Knights of God, a harsh militaristic religious order headed by Prior Mordrin. But a rebel movement is growing, in spite of Mordrin's brainwashing "re-education" camps, and joining it are two love-struck teenagers, Gervase and Julia, who escape from one of the camps to join a quest to find the rightful King of England, and thus re-establish democracy and order to the land.

gripping stuff, definitely worth a DVD
5 August 2004 | by samurai_richSee 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.
