Atlantis has the BBC “Saturday night spirit” at its heart, so what better time to premiere this, the first trailer for the show.
In the plus column is Howard Overman, the show’s creator and the man behind Misfits. In the minus column? Well, it would be both uncharitable and silly to expect this kind of swords, sandals and sorcery stuff to be routinely bad just because we’ve seen a lot of turkeys in the genre before.
I remain hopeful. Auntie needs another regular Saturday night date.
