I can say little more. The presence of Hugh Burden wasn't enough to keep me awake I'm afraid.

3/10

There are some really great sets in this one but the story just isn't engaging. Kim Mills direction (despite improving for season three) never really lifts anything. It's not as deeply boring as The Trojan Horse though!

8 for me. I can't help liking this tale of a man obsessed with this past era and finding out his all too familiar related fate.

Saw this one last Sunday, seemed appropriate as its about the threat of a virus, but it was also the 15th the Ides of March.


I liked it, a bit of weird Steed undercover action, diabolical if mad mastermind. Sadly falls completely flat at the end the last minutes feel rushed and without any point or charm.

CALPURNIA (in a thick Bronx accent)
I told him, Julie, don't go. Don't go Julie, I said. Don't go, it's the Ides of March.

FLAVIUS
Now look, Mrs. Caesar, I'd ---

CALPURNIA
If I told him once, I'd told him a thousand times, Julie, don't go ...

FLAVIUS
Please, don't upset yourself.

CALPURNIA
Julie, don't go, I said. It's the Ides of March. Beware already.

Exactly the same here. Worst episode. The only one that ever sent me to sleep.
