Roman Britain meets LA

An interesting attempt at setting a Chandleresque tale in the ancient past. It worked well enough but I struggled with 2 things:
1. It's set in London but all the natives had what were probably Irish accents 2. The Latin pronunciations were done in a style that was old fashioned when I learned 30 years ago. Pronouncing villa as wee-la made me laugh out loud. If you're not a pedant (like me), it's perfectly enjoyable.
