Personal Synopsis

This episode takes Sir Lancelot outside of the realm of Camelot to defend an injustice. The storyline does follow in suit with the Sir Lancelot saves the day method but there seems to be an effort to add some substance to the other characters. It is good to see Derren Nesbitt playing a “good guy” role when up to this point his roles are usually of the sinister type.
