Arthurian epic hits Channel 4 main image

If like me, you’ve been obsessed with the breath-taking HBO/Sky Atlantic epic Game Of Thrones  and are dreading its impending conclusion you won’t have to wait long for a fix of some epic drama as Camelot premieres on Channel 4 next Saturday.


Camelot tells the story of a young Arthur who is crowned king by Merlin after his father King Uther is mysteriously killed, much to the dismay of his sister, Morgana who feels she should rule instead. This sibling rivalry is what drives the 10 part series.  Bringing new life to this age old tale is an ensemble of all-star acting talent including Eva Green(Morgana), Joseph Fiennes (Merlin)and Tamsin Egerton( Lady Guinevere) . Arthur himself is played by relative newcomer, Jamie Campbell Bower who has had small role in films such as Sweeney Todd:The Demon Barber of  Fleet Street and alongside Robert Pattinson in the Twilight movies.


Camelot should not be confused with the BBC’s Merlin as its been produced by the same team behind Rome and Spartacus: Blood and Sand which are shall we say much more adult oriented.
