Asterix in Britain

Having conquered (nearly) all of Gaul, Julius Caeser turns his attention to Britain. Noticing that British warriors stop fighting at 5 O'clock to drink boiled water, and on weekends, Caeser cleverly orders his troops to attack only at 5 PM on weekdays, and all day on weekends. Britain is soon under Roman occupation except for one small village, where Asterix's British cousin lives. Word gets to Gaul, and Asterix and company set off across the Channel with their famous strength-giving magic potion to try to help turn back the Romans.
