Covington Cross

Show Summary

This is a fanciful drama about life in medieval England for Sir Thomas, a widower, and his four children. Richard and Armus are stalwart young knights, but the other two children only wish they were. Cedric is in training to be a cleric as his late mother wished. Eleanor finds it difficult because of her sex, although she is as good on a horse and with a crossbow as any man. (Another son, William, left for the Crusades after the pilot episode and was barely mentioned again.) Sir Thomas has developed a relationship with Lady Elizabeth, who lives in her own castle nearby. Their other neighbor, Baron John Mullens, is continually plotting to ruin Sir Thomas and take his land. The series was filmed on location at Allington Castle and Penshurst Place in Kent. The series' chances were dimmed when it was postponed by ABC for several weeks after the first episode, and then again was pre-empted when presidential candidate Ross Perot purchased the timeslot for a campaign commercial.moreless
