Why am I ill and writing essays again? And why do essays have such a dire effect upon tea (the "I honestly can't drink two cafetieres of coffee and a pot of tea in one day therefore do actually need something awful and herbal such as nettle" effect). The odd attitude towards Juno remains, and I had the fun of attempting to explain the plot of "I, Claudius" to an half asleep person the other day. Oh, a piece of advice: do not watch fall asleep watching aforementioned drama. 'tis confusing...
Now shall return to essay.

It's not quite a plot. More of a lovely long ramble.
I don't think I even need to sign that for you to know who I am.

Ah, but rambling does not work on television as well, and it is difficult to explain poisoning in brief. And Derek Jacobi is WRONG!

Derek Jacobi plays him far too dim. And he looks wrong too.

Televised rambles work quite well when you are sofabound and need something that lasts about three days to watch. But it does get confusing when you fall asleep, this is true.

it works very well as a distraction, just not as a faithful adaptation of the novels. Brian Blessed, however, is Augustus and if I can come up with an argument for him as an icon, he shall be one. But yes, Jacobi doesn't seem to have grasped that Claudius isn't actually a fool, looks very wrong, and there seems to be far too little of Calpurnia.
