Saturday nights just got mysterious with new epic adventure series Atlantis.

Stranded in a world of mythical creatures, soothsaying oracles and palaces so big it's said they were built by giants, it's every bit as magical as it sounds.

But the newcomer has entered the fabled land at the wrong time, and soon finds himself at the mercy of a deadly ritual. Can his new friends Pythagoras and Hercules save him and help him escape? And Will Jason ever find his father?

Atlantis, BBC1, 8.25pm
