The Cleopatras: Episode 4

on BBC Two England

An eight-part serial written by Philip Mackie.
100 BC. The Ptolemy version of monarchical chairs continues as Berenike plots to get rid of her drunken husband Alexander. Chickpea reclaims the throne and Berenike's ambition is realised when he makes her joint monarch. However, his death leaves a dangerous power vacuum - and Rome is now taking a more than friendly interest.
