With a swash and a buckle and nary a cry of "It's a bit slow, don't you think?", First Knight is straight in at the top, which must prove that the country likes its medieval adventures filled with syrup, not steel. The grime of Rob Roy is still hanging in there for us purists, though, and the end of the world as we know it is signalled by Exit to Eden even getting a release, let alone a top 10 placing.
