The Plebs: Series 3 (2016)
Monday 30th May 2016
The Plebs are back again! Released on DVD by Universal Pictures (UK) on 18th July 2016, in series 3 of the award-winning sitcom set in ancient Rome, Grumio, Marcus and Stylax come up against ferocious lions at the games, a vicious landlady, an estranged father and a vestal virgin who is anything but!
25BC Rome. One year on in the eternal city... Tempus fugit.
Emperor Augustus Caesar is still the most powerful man in the known world. And languishing somewhere near the other end of the food chain are three lowly plebs: Marcus, Stylax and their feckless slave, Grumio (Tom Rosenthal, Joel Fry and Ryan Sampson).
As the ancestors of 'generation rent', they live in a squalid block in the worst part of town - presided over by the ruthless Landlady (Maureen Lipman). They work dead-end jobs for Rome's third largest grain supply company. And though the Games are in town, they 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 possibly become his Gaul-friend? Or is she just a bit too real for him?
As well as their regular nemeses, this year our Plebs encounter a legion of new Roman recruits: visiting parents (Samantha Spiro, Danny Webb, Steve Edge), a brazen Vestal Virgin (Michelle Keegan), a doping discus thrower (Ingrid Oliver), a theatrical grande dame (Miriam Margolyes) and an ancient weatherman (David Bamber).
Let the Games begin...
