Synopsis:
The Romans are here and set to stay. Two years on from his invasion of Britannia, General Aulus (David Morrissey) is romanising cooperative Celt tribes and crushing those who try to resist, with the help of his new ally, Celt Queen Amena (Annabel Scholey). The only form of hope for Veran's (Mackenzie Crook) Druids and Celts is Cait (Eleanor Worthington-Cox), a young girl who is being trained by outcast Druid Divis (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) to fulfil a prophecy that would save Britannia from the Romans. But when a dead man wakes, two Druid brothers begin an epic battle of wills that divides the Druids and puts the prophecy in jeopardy.

Absurd cod-historical drama set in Ancient Britain but about as historically accurate as Star Trek - Britannia: Series 2 review by PV

Spoiler Alert
19/03/2020

Britannia is bonkers. About as close to real historical events as Star Trek, and full of absurd Americanised dialogue and right-on pc characters, it really is more of a curiosity than anything else. Not in the same league as VIKINGS (which also casts rather too many pretty women as warriors and monarchs).

All suffused with a dark mystical spiritual flavour but one so unbelievable it is hard to suspend disbelief, I whizzed through these episodes in a couple of days. The Romans are great - the Ancient Britons seemingly made up by fantasy producers. Ancient Celts and Britons were really not the pantomime characters as portrayed here.

And, as in the first series, I just could not believe the young girl main character and her importance - she is just too stage school for my tastes and, like many here, should be more scarred, deformed and pock-marked to add to the realism (there is not much here though!). The Druids were all male and trained boys only, as recounted in Roman histories. But...

SO LONG AS you do not take it at all seriously, it passes the time - but that is all. 3 stars. Meh.

Britannia Series 2 - Britannia: Series 2 review by RH

Spoiler Alert
19/05/2020

Enjoyed Series 1, but Series 2 seems to have lost its way somewhat not enough action given that it is supposed to be around the Roman invasion of Britain, which was a bit bloody to say the least.

All the mystical druid stuff got a bit tedious after a while
