1 review about I, Claudius (TV miniseries)

Without a Doubt the Best TV Miniseries Ever!

I never tire of watching this superbly acted and exciting program that is absolutely my favorite program I have ever seen on tv. Derek Jacobi is excellent as the meek, stuttering Claudius who lives through the reigns of 3 emperors while all those around him are either murdered or meet mysterious deaths. After his evil nephew Caligula is murdered, Claudius is pulled out of hiding by the Praetorian Guards and made the emperor.

Seeing it as a chance to restore the republic to Rome, Claudius rules wisely paving the way for the evil Nero to follow him.

Sean Phillips is excellent as Livia, the wife of Augustus Ceaser, who will poison anyone that stands in the way of her son becoming emperor. John Hurt is phenomenal as Caligula and look for Patrick Stewart as the evil Sejanus!

What network was this on? Is it available on DVD? I loved the book by Robert Graves, but never knew it was made into a TV show. I don't suppose you know how faithful it is to the book?

It used to be shown on PBS. Currently, the entire series is available on DVD.
