I, Claudius Rewatch, and Doctors

Working from home today, as I've got a couple of doctor's appointments this morning and this afternoon.

Spent a terrific evening last night watching some more of the classic I, Claudius (see the History on Film webpage here) British tv mini-series, based on the books by Robert Graves. I had re-watched the first three episodes last week, detailing the period of Augustus's reign and going through the birth of Claudius himself.

I watched from Episode 4 through Episode 8, and just adored the stuff in these episodes. The series as a whole is still as marvellous as it was when I watched it the first few times. This set of episodes dealt primarily with the death of Livia, Tiberius's evil, the introduction of Caligula, and the wonderful portrayal of the power mad Lucius Aelia Sejanus (ably played by Patrick Stewart), and saw the introduction of Septimus Macro, played by the great actor John Rhys-Davies.

Quite looking forward to the next few episodes. In the meantime, back to work. And then off to the first doctor's appointment of the day.
