SynopsisWhen King Arthur sets out for yet another distant battle, he does not realise that his brilliant idea of entrusting temporary care of Camelot to his cousin, Sir Mordred, is going to backfire. In Arthur's absence Mordred decides that he wants the job on a permanent basis and that includes taking Queen Guinevere as well. Now, as we all know, damsels in distress inevitably attract heroic rescuers. Cue would-be knight Sir Lancelot. What Lancelot lacks in knightly skills he makes up for in enthusiasm. Unfortunately he cannot overcome Mordred and even the returning Arthur needs to turn to the mystic legends of Avalon in order to reclaim Camelot and his Guinevere.

The Earl of Gloucester, on the other hand, does not intend to retire but his scheming son, Edmund, wants to take over the title anyway, even if it means by-passing the rightful heir, his brother Edgar. The two families' affairs become linked and a violent tale of treachery, jealousy and blind ambition ensues.
Despite the body count running into double figures, this is a comedy.
