Violence & Gore
Part 1 - Mostly moderate violence in some scenes: a character is slain by another, with blood spurting from his mouth. A man is beheaded though this is offscreen. A main character is stabbed several times in the chest - some blood is shown. Another main character is strangled to death. There are a few battle scenes with slashings, stabbings, screaming etc but these are not very graphic.
Part 2 - some extremely graphic violence and gore for a TV movie: a Catholic priest is hung for taking mass; another is brutally executed and cut open with a sharp instrument - very disturbing. Following a battle, a pit is shown with a large number of dead bodies - very bloody. A character is nearly drowned by his former friends. A character covered in blood is shown being tortured with thumb screws. A number of battle scenes although these are not on the whole too graphic.
