[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.

There were satisfyingly high production values, a bloodthirsty appetite for violence and a proper cliffhanger. Sign me up.

The Saxon Stories, Bernard Cornwell's novel series on which the show is based, are undoubtedly compelling reads. But as a television adaptation, The Last Kingdom is too little, too late, and comes across as too unoriginal.

As Thrones-aping series go, The Last Kingdom is a better bet than plenty of others. It's easier to follow than Bastard Executione" and less battle-crazy than Vikings, occupying a gentler middle ground.

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.
