    Product Details

    PLEBS follows three desperate young men from the suburbs as they try to get laid, hold down jobs and climb the social ladder in the big city... of Ancient Rome! Marcus (Tom Rosenthal), Stylax (Joel Fry) and their lazy slave Grumio (Ryan Sampson) live in a grotty apartment block run by a dodgy Landlord (Karl Theobald) and work in dead end jobs for a ruthless boss Flavia (Doon Mackichan). But when a couple of fit Britons Cynthia (Sophie Colquhoun) and Metella (Lydia Rose Bewley) arrive in the neighbourhood things start to look up. Also featuring cameo stars including Danny Dyer, from orgy etiquette to being bashful down the bathhouse, this is Ancient Rome like you ve never seen before. Since series one the world has progressed (from 27BC to 26BC) but flat-mates Marcus, Stylax, and slave Grumio have made no strides whatsoever. Marcus ongoing crush Cynthia is still ignoring his advances, and Stylax wants to become a champion charioteer. Who cares if he doesn't own a chariot and can't drive? Their fearsome boss Flavia and water-pouring colleague, Aurelius (Tom Basden) torment them at work. While at home, business is booming for their dodgy Landlord who is now accompanied by massive henchman, Davus (Tom Davis). Guest Stars include Simon Callow, Shaun Williamson, Lauren Socha, Tim Key, and James Fleet. Our resident Plebs are residents of a squalid block overseen by a ruthless Landlady (Maureen Lipman). They work dead-end jobs and, with the Games in town, can't get tickets for any event - not even the pig chase. But an encounter with a fiery Gallic activist, Delphine (Bella Dayne) might at least improve Marcus romantic stakes. Could she become his Gaul-friend? As well as their regular nemeses, this year our Plebs encounter a legion of new Roman recruits including visiting parents (Samantha Spiro, Danny Webb, Steve Edge), a brazen Vestal Virgin (Michelle Keegan), a theatrical grande dame (Miriam Margolyes) and an ancient weatherman (David Bamber). The sudden departure of Stylax and sudden arrival of dappy blonde builder Jason (Jonathan Pointing) throws the Plebs into turmoil. But hope arrives in the form of wangle an abandoned toilet from crooked property developer Crassus (Robert Lindsay) which they aim to convert into Rome's hottest new wine-bar - The Crown and Toga. This could be their chance to finally hit the big time, but first they have to grapple with Rome's leading food critic (Annette Badland), launch a cabaret night with scathing satirist (Aisling Bea), take part in the city's Marathon and host a snail-racing syndicate.
