Plebs Series 4 is still hilarious but Jason not Stylax

The ITV2 comedy has undergone a major revamp with great success. But Thomas Ling finds it hard to adjust to new laddish character Jason...

Thomas Ling, Radio Times, 10th April 2018

The fourth in this amiably anachronistic series set in ancient Rome begins with the humorously sudden death of a key character, crushed by a stone on the construction site of "Number One, The Forum" - the project of Robert Lindsay's smooth, prattling property developer. Marcus (Tom Rosenthal) makes a lame bid for compensation as Ryan Sampson's Grumio eats his way through his grief. But then Jason (Jonathan Pointing), the builder responsible for the accident, enters their lives.
