Quotes

Severus: We want to build a true partnership here. In this case, we'll work together to subdue all the surrounding tribes, thus extending Prasutagus's kingdom and allowing it to flourish without the threat of bloody conflict.
Dervalloc: Well, I say we kill these Romans now. Send them back to their emperor in pieces.
Prasutagus's men: Yeah!

Histo-tainment, Andrew Davies style
13 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

I agree with the previous comments concerning this production, and I would like to add that it demonstrates a complete innocence of knowledge of Roman history as well. It's amazing that, being such puling, punkish little perverts, as they are depicted almost without exception, the Romans managed to more or less hold an empire together for another four centuries (despite the sententious pronouncement that "here the Roman Empire stands or crumbles"). The only Romans that appear to have more than a few decades on them are Claudius and Seutonius. Nero looks like he's suffering from a combination of tuberculosis and malaria; and he seems to have been conflated with Caligula, showing a penchant for strutting around in armor more appropriate in the son of a famous general who grew up in army camps in Gaul than in the haughty, patrician artist the historic Nero appears to have fancied himself to be. I guess all those emperors look the same from a distance of a couple of millennia. Also, there appears to have been a distinct lack of sunlight (not to mention personal hygiene) in the first century AD. All in all, I suppose it's slightly more authentic than an episode of Xena: Warrior Princess.
