The resolution of Marcus' background story - and it doesn't disappoint!
on 13 July 2016
At last we get to the heart of Marcus' back-story, and having made us wait this long for it Anthony Riches doesn't disappoint! Moving away from the battlefields of northern Europe to the streets of Rome, this storyline crackles with tension as Marcus and his friends navigate the political undercurrents around the emperor. Don't think for a moment that because there are no big battles in this one that the pace drops, because it doesn't - in fact the scenes in the arena are all the more potent for being close-ups on a few characters. And there are some great surprises as you find out who was who in Marcus' early life. Definitely one not to be missed in a very strong series.
