Trivia

Actress Noa Bodner had to have all of her hair shaved off for one day of filming. On the DVD commentary track for this episode, James Purefoy referred to Bodner as 'the bravest actress in England.' Numerous other bit players suffered a similar fate during the filming of the Egyptian scenes, such as the Nubian warriors that feature prominently in this episode. See more »

Goofs

At about the 32 minute mark, when Antony and Cleopatra are arguing about what to do about Atia's arrival in Alexandria, just before Cleopatra starts throwing things at Antony the body slave Charmian can be seen behind Antony, on the opposite side of him from Cleopatra. A moment later when Cleopatra actually throws something, Charmian is on the other side of the room behind Cleopatra. See more »
