I loved this show
29 March 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It was vulgar and blingy and probably historically accurate as well. I mainly remember Caroline Mortimer as one of the Cleos and the late Richard Griffiths hairless as Pot Belly. He had a great death scene (and eye makeup). Just watching a clip from a certain website with Graham Crowden (in slap) as Theodotus. Michelle Newell is looking into a pool where lotuses float - the water is going wiggly - we are going back to the distant past... It all seems to be there. The early 80s were a great era for telly. Perhaps this is where they got their love of Ancient Egyptian style. "You will join your compatriots at the receiving end of the elephants' feet! Arrest them! I am the power in the land! Give my love to the elephants."
