News & Interviews for The Last Kingdom: Season 1
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.
Audience Reviews for The Last Kingdom: Season 1
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.
