I think I expected too much from this drama and that is my fault. It is, after all, a kiddies tv series from 1978. Therefore it come across as rather tame. Because Sian Phillips played Empress Livia Drusila in 'I Claudius' so wonderfully, I was expecting to see a fabulous wicked and bloodthirsty Boudicca Warrior Queen. It was made for children however, and was shown on children's prime time tv. As far as kids go; it is very good - my grandchildren enjoyed it very much.

It is many years since I saw this on TV and have waited patiently to see it again. Sian Phillips as always is wonderful. Of course by current standards it is more modest in its production values, but this is more then made up for by the talents of the likes of Nigel Hawthorne and some great early writing. First shown in 1978 it inspired in me two loves, the power of Sian Phillips and the inspiration of Boudicca herself.

Interesting take on the Boudicca story, what little is known of her. Obviously aimed at kids but I enjoyed watching it. Not a high budget production - with a cast of 10s to recreate the battle scenes. But a good quality cast.

I suppose I was trying to remember this as watched when in first showed on tv. Knowing more and research on finds in the historical context have rendered this series beyond obsolete both in terms of accuracy and acting. I would suppose it was pretty big budget when made but boy is it boring and depressing watching now. If you we're thinking of watching it again then don't do it, I fast forwarded it so many times trying to find good bits that I must have viewed the whole series in the time taking in watching two at normal speed. In all do not try and watch it to remember how good it was.......it isn't
Personal view so make your mind up yourself if you dare lol

Very dated and poor direction with almost laughable fight scenes. If you compare the production values and acting to an old Doctor Who series you won't be disappointed. Sadly no longer really relevant.
Very interesting that even quality actors like Nigel Hawthorn need good direction and a stronger script..

At best - boring. At worst - tedious. I'll give it away as soon as possible.
