I quite liked this latest one. Felt like a return to form after the last series was more disappointing.

Something about his coverage of ancient Rome really works for me.

In the end I listened to this episode at least 4 times. I put it on at night, fell asleep, rewound in the morning to something I titn't recognize, and started again. Turns out there's so much in the epic-sode that I listened to the same sections several times.

Same here!!

Something about reading on the subject (granted it may be the writing which is the problem) feels so cold and distant. DC makes me feel like I'm hearing about something which might have occurred 100 years ago.
