This time, Jamie Campbell Bower takes the role of Arthur, with Eva Green faring well as his half-sister, Morgan. The cast is rounded out by the likes of Tamsin Egerton and Joseph Fiennes, and the show is billed as the Camelot story “that has never been told before”. That’s a bit of dubious claim, really, although it does try a few things with the legend that give it some distinction. But not as much as you’d hope.
The problem, though, is that Camelot never sparks consistently into life. There’s a lot to like here, from the quality of the production design, some of the direction, and the terrific turn from Eva Green that sits at the heart of many of the show’s best moments. But the acting performances are up and down, while the writing, too, lets the side down a little too often. Common sense doesn’t always prevail where this Camelot is concerned.
Camelot remains an enjoyable show, and one that’s certainly worth checking out. It’s not too hard, though, to work out the reasons why its light flickered out after only one season run. Eva Green, though, is really rather special here. --Jon Foster

What a missed opportunity this was. The Arthurian legend is too long and sprawling to be a film but lends itself well to a tv series, but sadly Camelot failed to capture its... Read morePublished 10 months ago by Simon D. Murphy
