7 June 2018

How much do the cast of Cicero actually know about their protagonist? Director Scott Handcock puts lead star Samuel Barnett through his paces as he quizzes him on the man that is the legend in Cicero.

Think you know Cicero? Watch Scott Handcock quizzing Samuel Barnett on Cicero here:

Cicero, the second of our Big Finish Originals range, was released as a full series this May. Telling the tale of one of history’s greatest orators, Big Finish was delighted to have Samuel Barnett and George Naylor return to their roles exploring Ancient Rome and the lives of the brothers Cicero.

Nominated for the Best Audio Drama at the 2018 Audies, the pilot of Cicero, Though Scoundrels are Discovered, was released in February 2017. Cicero: The Complete Series Episodes I – VI continues the adventures of Cicero in an ancient world of murder, romance and revolution.

Rome, 80BC. An age of bloody civil war and dictatorship is at an end.

In its turbulent aftermath, an ambitious young lawyer, Marcus Tullius Cicero, is beginning to make a name for himself. But does he have what it takes, and can this new era of peace and prosperity truly last? When he defends the accused in a prominent murder trial, Cicero's path crosses with that of Sulla, the former dictator and a war hero of the Republic.

Soon, Cicero will discover that beneath Rome’s civilised and sophisticated veneer lies corruption, cruelty and vice. Taking on the Roman underworld may come at a considerable cost, and so Cicero must find a way to balance family and friendship with his unwavering commitment to justice. 

The Roman world is on the brink of revolution. The age of Caesar is drawing near. And Cicero will have to do everything he can to survive the storm.

Cicero is available as part of the Big Finish Originals range, a new wave of original full-cast plays launched to celebrate 20 years of publishing award-winning audio drama. A free excerpt of Cicero can be downloaded here.
