When Emperor Caligula abuses his power as ruler of Rome, Claudius is named the new leader. A stuttering and sickly man, he immediately encounters challenges and power struggles. Does Claudius shy away from his new position or does he become the Emperor Rome needs? Follow the span of Claudius’ life and the history of the Roman Empire with this enthralling marathon of the award-winning series I, Claudius this Sunday.
