A star-studded cast brings history to life in this epic drama.

Invading Romans take on warring Celtic tribes and mystical Druids in this nine-part drama series from Spectre writer Jez Butterworth.

Set in 43AD, Britannia follows Roman general Aulus Plautius (David Morrissey), who sets out to earn the trust of the Cantii and Regni, rival Celtic tribes, before turning them against each other in his plot to rule Britannia.

Will the enemies join forces to fight the Romans?

All the while, Aulus’s obsession with powerful Druids, led by the enigmatic Veran (an unrecognisable Mackenzie Crook), casts a shadow over his mission…

An impressive-looking, big-scale production, with a top-notch cast and punchy dialogue.
