2ND SEASON CHARA- CTER PHOTOS
I'm sure that most of you will agree with me that the first season definitely was not what we expected we would see when they told us we were getting a new historical series about the Roman invasion of Great Britain. We expected to see mighty legions, brave Celtic queens and warriors in chariots, but instead we got crazed mystics, psychotic generals, a couple of weed smoking Roman junkies and the only even remotely likeable character dead right after she finally became the Celtic

Her beloved partner of 20 years is no more, and now she can’t open the garage doors. If that were her only problem… Men have a habit of hiding stuff that they don’t want to deal with, and Alice discovers that Harry was worse than most.
