Great Caesar!
10 March 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Here's another mini-masterpiece from the animated versions of the Bard's plays. Not many of the historical tragedies have been included, but this, perhaps the most accessible of the Roman works, in the cartoon format which I generally prefer, proves thoroughly suitable for such treatment. We enjoy remarkably fine acting, thrilling images, stirring music with the usual deft abbreviation by Leon Garfield which leaves the basic plot and argument intact. Caesar himself (voiced by Joss Ackland) is particularly impressive, and Peter Woodthorpe is a relishably wry and witty Casca. David Robb and Jim Carter speak well for Brutus and Marc Antony, and Royal Shakespeare Company veteran Hugh Quarshie is a spirited, malign yet vulnerable Cassius. Visually, the storm before he Ides of March and Caesar's ghostly appearance before Phillipi are especially exciting. What a great little series this has been!
