Usual high standard production.

Was somewhat bemused by the strong regional accents, notably from Northern Ireland and Scotland used by a couple of cast members. Also found Cleopatra extremely annoying, but this series is so superb that it never deserves less than 4 stars, usually 5. Enjoyed this less than the others I have listened to but perhaps that it is because the play seems somewhat overlong and long winded at times.
