It is an emotional scene. The life of the mortally wounded King Arthur (Julian Rhind-Tutt) slowly ebbs away. Beside his frail body sits the great wizard Merlin (Mark Gatiss), who offers him a vision of the future. He can see Steve Buscemi. He is playing a character called Mr Shhh, the aptly named assassin in the 1995 film Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead. Confused? This might be 15th-century Britain as we've never encountered it before but the surrealism of the drama is remarkably effective. Arthur may try and throw Excalibur into Deptford Creek, only to have it snatched from his grip by a track-suited teenager, but writer Jonathan Holloway has not lost a single iota of the magic and poignancy of Thomas Malory's tale.
