Summary:
The Celtic queen who shook the Roman Empire.

Life of a king. Mother of two daughters. Leader of her tribe in first century Briton. Boudica (Alex Kingston, Moll Flanders and ER) is one of history's first and fiercest women warriors.

Sickened by ceaseless war, the king of the Iceni accepts a treaty with the Romans in exchange for his tribe's continued independence. But oppressively high taxes impoverish the tribe and soon the Romans want something more -- slaves. Refusing to submit, the Romans, led by the greedy and psychotic Emperor Nero, move to crush the Iceni and control their lands. When the king dies mysteriously, his wife, Boudica, is left alone to face the rapacious Romans and save her people.

Drawing on the strength of her warriors, mystical druidic powers, and her own pain, Boudica unites the historically fractious tribes of Briton to unleash a stunning onslaught on the Roman colonial camps. The ferocity of Boudica's attacks will shake the foundations of the Roman empire and make her a legend.

Taken from the pages of Roman history books, the spine-tingling tale of the fearsome Queen Boudica, who dared to take on the most powerful army on earth, bursts into life as a story of love, treachery, and unquenchable thirst for revenge.

Special DVD features include: selected cast filmographies; selected cast list; biography of host Russell Baker; a link to the Masterpiece Theatre Web site; closed captions; and video descriptions.
