The Cleopatras: Episode 2

on BBC Two England

An eight-part serial written by Philip Mackie.
128 BC. Pot Belly and the younger Cleopatra re-invade Egypt, banishing Cleopatra the mother to Syria, where her daughter Cleopatra Thea is maintaining the best family traditions of remorseless feuding. Meanwhile Pot Belly announces a sudden change of character - henceforth he is to be known as 'Pot Belly the Benign'. The results are startling.
