Roman Mysteries Blog: Meeting Colombo


The Roman Mysteries TV series, which was recently suspended due to sensitivity about the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, is to 'reboot' on BBC1 on Tuesdays at 4.30pm from 19 June, starting again from the first episode, The Secrets of Vesuvius

The series cost �1 million per episode to film (on location in Tunisia and Malta), making it the most expensive British children's TV series to date. It stars Simon Callow, Nicholas Farrell and Liz May Brice and has cinematic sets, costumes and soundtrack.
There is a BBC website with clips and interactive games based on the series:

You can read the roller coaster account of its making on Caroline Lawrence's TV series diary on this page of her website:

I have chosen to link this blog entry to the author's account of her appearance at the Hay Festival, which focuses on her movingly recorded encounter with Peter Falk, the actor who played Colombo in the TV series of that name.
