Jason faces off with the Minotaur in a new picture from BBC’s Merlin replacement Atlantis

Atlantis

 

A new picture of Jason facing off against the famous Minotaur has appeared ahead of Atlantis‘ first episode on Saturday.

“When Jason sets out to find his father, he could never have anticipated where his journey would lead…

Far from home and desperate for answers, Jason washes up on the shores of an ancient land. A mysterious place; a world of bull leaping, of snake haired Goddesses and palaces so vast it was said they were built by giants – this is the city of Atlantis.

But under the surface of this enticing place is a dark and simmering past, a complicated web of treachery and deceit, with which Jason himself seems inexplicably bound. He soon finds himself embroiled in a perilous game of politics and power from which there is no escape.

Aided by the studious young Pythagoras and the overweight, overbearing Hercules, Jason embarks on a voyage of discovery and salvation which sees him brush shoulders with Medusa, come face to face with the Minotaur and even do battle with the dead.”

Atlantis begins this Saturday at 8.25pm on BBC1.
