    A full-cast dramatisation of Robert Graves' brilliant account of the madness and debauchery of ancient Rome, starring Tom Goodman Hill as Claudius and Derek Jacobi as Augustus. The wickedly entertaining inside story of the lives and deaths of the Imperial dynasty from Augustus to Caligula is told by their obscure relation, Claudius. In public, Claudius is a stammering, drooling weakling, whose reputation as an idiot keeps him safe from office and assassination.

    What did you love best about I, Claudius (Dramatised)?

    About to take my first trip to Rome, I chose this to get myself into the mood. It was a wonderful experience listening to these actors perform. I've never seen the PBS series, but I could picture it just listening to this performance of I, Claudius.


    Have you listened to any of Derek Jacobi and Tom Goodman Hill ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I'm a big fan of Derek Jacobi and I wish he had a larger part in this.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to this book over several weeks. It's an easy book for car listening.
