The fortified city of Mdina came under siege over the weekend as the Knights Templars engaged took on the Turks, under the scorching sun... and the cameras.

The football ground in Mdina doubled as the set for a scene from the last episode of the TV series Miriana Coljerò, which will air on One TV in the coming weeks.

About 40 extras in period costumes defended the old city, taking breaks from the "gruelling battle" that lasted several hours.

The TV series recounts how the Templars, whose privilege was that the first-born child inherited immortality, used to drink human blood as part of their ritual. The story continues that the Templars became evil people when they started killing innocent victims and drinking their blood to become more powerful, the scriptwriter and director of the series, Mark Doneo, explained.

The special effects were in the hands of MC Effects Malta, under the direction of Kenneth Cassar.
