All Critics (31) | Top Critics (14)

I'm already in the thrall of this somewhat peculiar series.

Uhtred's trials intensify when he joins Alfred's quest to unite the kingdoms into England, creating an epic backdrop for a handsome, stellar cast and expert storytellers to weave television's latest addictive historical fiction.

[The Last Kingdom] all meshes together in enthralling fashion with a tale that's understandable and a setting that's tailor made for picturesque vistas... livens up Saturday nights with Emmy caliber storytelling and oft-sumptuous production values.

Isn't in the same league as that other medievalesque literary adaptation Game of Thrones, nor does it have the epic scope of Vikings. But its breathtaking photography, glorious fight scenes, and fantastical story make it a worthwhile treat for genre fans.

There is plenty of spectacle in The Last Kingdom, but none quite as spellbinding as Alfred's quiet intelligence.

This should brighten up the long, Thrones-less winter.

Oct 26, 2015 | Full Review…

People who like large swords but little plot will enjoy this hairy fare.

Apr 2, 2019 | Full Review…

The series has been described in advance as the BBC's answer to Game of Thrones. Yet, apart perhaps from the level of the violence, the programme's real roots seem to belong to less sophisticated (and less expensive) shows.

Apr 2, 2019 | Full Review…

Overall though, thumbs up to a promising, bloody start.

Apr 2, 2019 | Full Review…

The Last Kingdom looks like a cross between History's Vikings and HBO's Game of Thrones, but over the course of its first two seasons, it establishes itself as a show that can stand on its own two feet without the comparisons.

Audience Reviews for The Last Kingdom: Season 1

½

I love the Last Kingdom, it was a realistic medieval historical drama centred on a young warrior who was born a Saxon but raised as a Dane, he must navigate through various plots and schemes from both sides of the war to survive. The production value was totally worth the end result, a must watch.
