There are dark forces at work within the walls of Camelot – again – and this time it's Gwen whose life is in great danger. King Uther has found out his son, Prince Arthur, loves her and he won't sanction a marriage between them... So, who would be nasty enough to ruin the romance between Arthur and Gwen?
