Sylvestra Le Touzel
When a particularly sissy Caesar orders his general Rhinus to proceed with the conquest of Britain, which is just a mosaic of inter-warring Celtic tribes related to the Gauls he already subjugated, those send Marcosivellauniviromandiboule (aka Young Gaul) to the Dubonni, a measly tribe where three sisters play a leading role, and therefore see the messenger foremost as an ideal catch for the unmarried youngest; his bed-test goes great, while a Roman attack on the rivaling neighbor Kent tribe is welcomed without any strategic foresight. Nevertheless the Roman war machine rolls on, so war must be engaged, however again in their, female-shaped way. Written by
British humour - if you don't get British humour your face will be like, 'huh?' all the way through. Test: "Dyslexic man walks into a bra," subtract 4 if you went, 'huh?'.
Excellent production values with just a few odd scene shifts, nice score and the jokes are maintained through to the end. Good characterisation and plot that makes you care about this mad alternate Roman world. This is what happens when a good group of actors are pooled together and told, 'It's a pantomime - go for it.'
There are some great pastiche characters; the Picts are perfect and I loved the queen, 'Excellent war, well done, carry on.'
