Timothy Dalton and Lynn Redgrave offer fine work in this adaptation of Shakespeare's Drama.Although production values for this live on tape adaptation are below par the acting for the most part is fine. Barrie Ingham as Enobarbus offers the finest performance in the play. Always a strong character actor this (along with Pellinore in "Camelot"(1982))is one of his most brilliant portrayals. Walter Koenig also scores as the rebelious Pompey,showing for the first time that he is a much better actor than "Star Trek" allowed. some of the supporting players are dreadful however.In particular Anthony Geary as Octavius Ceasar. Why they cast this man in Shakespeare is beyond me. Overall its a decent adaptation of a play that deserves a more detailed treatment.
