Six-episode mini-series covering five centuries of the Roman Empire. Emperor Caligula's (John Simm) mind is unraveling, and in a fit of rage he murders his sister's husband on false charges of conspiracy and sends Agrippina (Laura Morante) into exile. Adopting Agrippina's son Nero (Hans Matheson) as his heir, the Emperor hands the young man the throne by means of a false will. Nero ascends to the throne as the most powerful man in Rome - but deteriorates and finally falls due to the paranoia, guilt, and bloodlust that haunt him.
