TV Camelot (Starz 2011, Joseph Fiennes, Eva Green) Published 3 years ago on August 2, 2016 An ambitious big budget version of the King Arthur and Camelot story that appeared the same year as the first season of Game of Thrones and ultimately suffered because of the massive amount of press garnered by that show and unfair comparisons between the two. There was a lot of emphasis on Magic, Merlin and Morgan Pendragon (the bitter half-sister of Arthur) and like GOT also focused on the internecine rivalries of who should be ruling the kingdom. In this version Guinevere is in love with Arthur and he her but she is married to Leontes, one of Arthur’s key knights. Their relationship has to be conducted in secret. The first episode was given a special preview on Starz was broadcast on 25 February 2011 before the series began properly on 1 April. The series was predominantly filmed in Ireland and Canada and Starz said they didn’t continue with the series because of various production challenges not least the scheduling conflicts of most of the lead players. Official synopsis In the wake of King Uther’s sudden death, chaos threatens to engulf Britain. When the sorcerer Merlin has visions of a dark future, he installs the young and impetuous Arthur, Uther’s unknown son and heir, who has been raised from birth as a commoner. But Arthur’s cold and ambitious half sister Morgan will fight him to the bitter end, summoning unnatural forces to claim the crown in this epic battle for control. These are dark times indeed for the new King, with Guinevere being the only shining light in Arthur’s harsh world. Faced with profound moral decisions, and the challenge of uniting a kingdom broken by war and steeped in deception, Arthur will be tested beyond imagination. Forget everything you think you know – this is the story of Camelot that has never been told before. production details Ireland – Canada / Starz – Ecosse – GKTV – World 2000 – Take 5 Productions / 10×60 minute episodes / Broadcast 25 February – 10 June 2011 Creators: Chris Chibnall, Michael Hirst / Music: Mychael Danna, Jeff Danna / Executive Producers: Michael Hirst, Chris Chibnall, Fred Fuchs, John Weber, James Flynn, Ann Thomopoulos, Craig Cegielski, Tim Headington, Graham King, Douglas Rae, Morgan O’Sullivan cast Joseph Fiennes as Merlin Jamie Campbell Bower as King Arthur Eva Green as Morgan Pendragon Tamsin Egerton as Guinevere Claire Forlani as Igraine Chipo Chung as Vivien Sinéad Cusack as Sybil Peter Mooney as Kay Clive Standen as Gawain Philip Winchester as Leontes Sebastian Koch as King Uther James Purefoy as King Lot Diarmaid Murtagh as Brastias Jamie Downey as Ulfius Lara Jean Chorostecki as Bridget Daragh O’Malley as Leodegrance Sean Pertwee as Sir Ector THE EPISODES 1 April – 10 June 2011 1.
