    Saint or Sinner Review at ReJesus and CTVC Trial of the Templars Page

    I've just got a couple more pieces on Channel 5's Secrets of the Cross series. Firstly, following my review here for Mary Magdalene: Saint or Sinner?, I have written a second, quite different review for rejesus.

    Secondly, producers CTVC have uploaded a page on their website about their final entry in the series Trial of the Templars. Here's their summary
    Mysterious warriors in The Da Vinci Code, the real Knights Templar have been shrouded in mystery for 900 years... A corporation of Christian Crusaders condemned by the lies and disloyalty of their allies, the Templars are inseparable from the legendary Holy Grail. In an eerie story taking us from Paris and Avignon to ancient tunnels under Jerusalem, a shocking manuscript unearthed in the Vatican shows that the Templars were liquidated by an extremist with a Christ complex, amid a tale of corporate greed. Though viciously tortured by the King of France, did the Templars ultimately aid in their own destruction..?
    I'm going to wait until I've seen this before deciding whether to review it and if so where. It's not a Jesus film as such so I may leave commenting on this episode to others.

    Edit: The CTVC website now has short excerpts from reviews at The Sunday Times, the Mail and the Express, though strangely I've not been able to find those reviews at those paper's websites.
