Been watching this today - the movie from 2010. Anyone else seen it? I can't but think it was a chance lost. I certainly don't think it was as good as the book or, in fact the 1977 BBC series which, unfortunately, doesn't appear to be available anywhere.

Here is a link with some footage from the 1977 series for those interested...

It has motivated me to get my 15mm minifig strip Romans done though
