What a wonderfully bizarre reality Britannia has created.

In its second season, Britannia fully embraces the unique tone it started to develop in the first season while telling a rich story with increasingly nuanced characters.

I'm highly glad it's back, though. It makes little historical, theological, tribal or any other sense, but we get to see much fire and naked madness in Jez Butterworth's own vision.

Written by the playwright Jez Butterworth, it is an ethereal and wonderfully odd drama.

[Dave] Morrissey has the thrilled air of an actor who knows the show is so ludicrous, he literally cannot turn in a bad performance.

It is all a bit of a riot if you don't take a second of it seriously (which also helps to make the graphic violence less vile).

None of this amounts to much dramatically or emotionally, of course. Britannia is one of those shows you just have to imbibe, celebrating that it has the sheer cheek even to exist. Praise the capricious TV gods!

Astonishing costumes and make up, prop heads and limbs, brutal deaths, a jam factory's worth of red goo, brilliantly offbeat musical choices pillaged from Sixties and Seventies electro-folk -- everything has been ramped up for series two.
