UPDATED: Matt Lewis: ReWatch Bluestone 42 in the UK, Preview of Knight Club

We reported here and here about a new documentary Matthew Lewis did for the BBC. Now theres a trailer for the documentary which Matt does a voice-over for. Check it out below:

A synopsis is also below:
Film following the British team at the Battle of the Nations 2013, the world’s biggest and most brutal period tournament held in the French countryside. Knight Club is the story of Rob, Dan, Gwilym and Sam, a gallant band of English and Welsh knights, who are part of the fledgling debut British team. Dressed head to toe in clanking armour and wielding mighty swords their quest is to defeat the vicious Russians, the terrifying Israelis and the aggressive Americans. This is no re-enactment, this is the real deal, and with only a few weeks training under their chainmail, is at best ambitious, at worst foolhardy. But the novice knights have that bulldog spirit and, draped in the flag of St. George, they have hope in their hearts and a Ford Transit full of axes, maces and broadswords.
The show airs on BBC Three next Monday at 9pm.

In other Matt BBC Three stuff, his recent forray into comedy on Bluestone 42's Christmas special can now be watched in the UK on iplayer here. We'll let you know when we find out more international methods of watching as well as if the show will be picked up by BBC America or another country's channel. We are inquiring at the moment. Also of note is that there was no exit to Matthew's entry story on the show so there may be more of him to come! Fingers crossed!

Apparantly Matthew was already confirmed for the next series (oops!) but at least my ignorance got this reply from THE MAN HIMSELF!!!:

ALSO, in older Bluestone news I forgot to post, a few clips were released on BBC of the show which can now be seen below, internationally. So I hope that those missing out get some enjoyment!

Furthermore, Matthew did an interview with BBC Breakfast about the show, which can be watched in the UK here.
