90 Years after Julias Ceaser declares Britain a lost cause and ceases his assault on the small island, the Romans are back to claim what they believe is rightfully theirs. But before they can rule the island they’ll have to deal with its crazy inhabitants, inhabitants such as ‘wild warrior women and powerful druids who can channel the powerful forces of the underworld’.
In a world where fantasy television is ruled by shows like Game of Thrones, Britannia feels like a breath of fresh air. Never taking itself too seriously, always supplying ample amounts of drama and fresh storytelling Britannia is a stand out mini-series that will keep viewers gripped throughout.
Britannia was written and created by renowned writer, Jez Butterworth (Spectre, Black Mass and Edge of Tomorrow). The show is set in 43AD and takes part over 9 episodes. It originally aired on Sky Atlantic on January 18th 2018.
