Cartoon film adaptation: Asterix in Britain in 1986

One little ancient Briiths village still holds out against the Roman invaders. Asterix and Obelix are invited to help. They must face fog, rain, warm beer and boiled boar with mint sauce, but they soon have Governor Encyclopaedicus Britannicus's Romans declining and falling.

Until a wild race for a barrel of magic potion lands them in the drink. It's not quite cricket - how about a nice cup of hot water, though? Or even the first ever tea-party?

What the druids have to say about Asterix in Britain

The visit to the Tower of Londinium is a brilliant example of the authors' humour and the complicity between text and image in their work.

This album is one of the greats. The authors run wild between the barrels of warm beer mixed up with the one containing the magic potion and the reference to hip Briton bards shown with screaming fans.

There's no point looking for the pun in the name of chief Cassivellaunos, on page 6, because there isn't one. Cassivellaunos did indeed exist: he was the supreme chief of the Britons. On the other hand, we're not so sure that Mykingdomforanos did actually thwart Caesar's plans.
