Further Up Pompeii! (ITV 1991, Frankie Howerd, Joanna Dickens)



2nd belated and final revival of Up Pompeii, this time Lurcio was based in the reign of Caligula, was a freeman and ran his own wine bar.

Truth be told it was a special that definitely wasn’t special and probably shouldn’t have been made.
