Goofs

Every Roman camp built, even marching camps, which were built at the end of the day and demolished the following day whilst campaigning had a ditch, a bank and a palisade fence surrounding it. Not one Roman camp in the series has such a defence. See more »

Mythology, magic, ancient history, drama, humour, sex, sword and horse action, great photography costumes and scenery

Mythology, magic, ancient history, a classy cast drama with a memorable double act, unexpected humour, sexy and powerful women in lurid costumes, sword and horse action, with great photography and scenery. Add the maddest characters all completely embedded and fighting it out in this weird, mainly created world. Where the most impossibly imaginative little scenes are played out as if in complete certain logic and if you don't already understand, then what is wrong with you? What's not to like? Sometimes the musical score works an absolute treat, but sometimes seems too contemporary, jarring at first, until the penny drops and you get it. With a budget a fraction of that of Game of Thrones's total fantasy, Britannia outclasses it on gripping watcheability, if not on massive CGI dragons circling. Pity it was on Sky though. Not sure if all those football fans would appreciate it?
