The Last Kingdom

Adapted from British novelist Bernard Cornwell’s Saxon Stories, this Vikings-based Game Of Thrones-esque historical epic is a fast-paced and furiously-plotted exploration of faith, family and sacrifice. Bloodthirsty battles and political manoeuvring might sound familiar, but this British-produced series treads new ground with its historical accuracy and canny character development.



In the year 972, Saxon-born but Danish-raised Uhtred is forced to choose between his birth country and the people of his upbringing against the backdrop of a divided England ruled by King Alfred.
