Feathered Serpent (The): The Complete Series
Starring Diane Keen and Patrick Troughton, The Feathered Serpent is a story of murder, intrigue and political manoeuvring set amid the splendour and turmoil of ancient Mexico. This release comprises every episode of the children’s drama series from Thames Television, memorable for its spectacular sets and lavish costumes, originally transmitted between 1976 and 1978.
Within the Toltec civilisation of ancient Mexico, ritual human sacrifice was an accepted part of everyday life. Our story begins as the old religion of the peaceful god Quala – “The Feathered Serpent” – is coming to an end; whereas Quala only demanded offerings of fruit and flowers, Nasca, the fanatical and power-hungry priest, calls for “blood, and yet more blood” to satisfy the new god Teshcata – “The Smoking Mirror”. Against this backdrop, Tozo a young servant boy, is sent by his master Prince Heumac, King of the Toltecs, to the court of the mighty Emperor Kukulkhan – a peaceful ruler who hopes to bring about the return of Quala by means of an arranged marriage between his daughter Chimalma and Prince Heumac. Tozo quickly becomes caught up in a battle between the forces of good and evil, and must call upon all his strength and ingenuity to survive…
