Britannia Series II and I & II Box Set DVD and digital release

Ruthless Romans, drugged-up Druids and capricious Celts...welcome to Britannia. Olivier award-winning playwright Jez Butterworth (The Ferryman) pens this rich historical series that blends fact and fantasy to create a fever-dream drama. Recently returning for its second series on Sky Atlantic, Britannia Series II comes to DVD and digital from Acorn Media International on 10 February 2020 alongside a Series I & II Box Set.

43AD, Roman General Aulus Plautius (David Morrissey - The Missing) arrives in Britannia, determined to conquer it where Julius Caesar lost to the Druids 90 years earlier. He leverages rivalries between Celtic tribes led by Queen Antedia (Zoe Wanamaker - Harry Potter), and the aging King Pellenor (Ian McDiarmid - Star Wars).

High Druid Veran (Mackenzie Crook - Detectorists) summons spirits with gruesome rituals to achieve his own ends, while chosen child Cait (Eleanor Worthington-Cox - Gwen) seeks to fulfil a prophecy to oust the Romans with the help of demon-possessed madman Divis (Nikolaj Lie Kaas - The Killing).

Who will rule Britannia?

This enthralling, powerful six-part drama is set to air on BBC One this Christmas and arrives on DVD and digital from Acorn Media International on 27 January 2020.
