The Queen Of Swords Premise

A young woman returns to her home in California after her father’s mysterious death. There, she becomes a symbol, the queen of swords, fighting for justice and trying to right the wrongs the colonel has done.

Brought to us by the same producer, creative people, and some of the same actors of Highlander: The Series!

The Queen Of Swords

aka The Dr Robert Helm Show

“... the Queen of Swords finds an unlikely comrade in Robert Helm (played by Peter Wingfield), an English Doctor who trades his musket for a scalpel, vowing to save lives, not take them. He has little patience for Tessa, believing her to be a spoiled member of the nobility, and less for the Queen of Swords, despising the blades with which she deals justice, yet Helm keeps finding himself strangely attracted to the beautiful avenger in black.”

Queen of Swords DVDr Set Completed

Queen of Swords on fan-produced DVD

The DVDr’s are done. Artwork is imminent. $40.00 $35.00 to reserve your 6 disc unofficial fan “Queen of Swords” full season set today! You’ll also receive 5+ minutes of Bonus Material! UPDATE: Since 2007, I have limited orders to within North America only, utilizing Priority Mail by USPS. Sorry for the inconvenience, but international shipping is painful and unreliable. EMAIL ME FOR DETAILS! Shipment can begin as early as September. Hurry! Offer stands until I die or Queen of Swords is officially released in a digital format for English speaking and reading viewers. I offer this as an exclusively FAN-ORIENTED enterprise. I make little to no money off of it and spent months of work preparing it. Offical VHS is no longer available and Official DVD will most likely never be available to U.S. consumers. My intention is NOT to rip off anyone, only to spread the joy that is the “Queen of Swords”!!!
