"Exciting & Dramatic"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I'm really enjoying this series, similar to ‘Vikings’ but from the English perspective, and without the very graphic brutality. There is humour, history, and some very interesting characters. Well acted and well produced, and a fascinating storyline, I am looking forward to ‘hopefully’ many seasons of this great series.

This series is awesome. Keeps you clued to the screen. Hope season two is out soon.

"Rather Disappointing"
2 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

If you are a fan of The Vikings, you may be disappointed with The Last Kingdom.

It does show basically the same story but from the other side. It plays more like Hercules and Xena – the sets, costumes and acting are all similar. Stupid lines and jokes are also there.

It didn't come across as a mature production like The Vikings, it is probably aimed at a younger audience – teens and early 20s.

"Pretty darned good. Historically interesting."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

As others have said, this is like Vikings but told from an English perspective at a slightly advanced time. Alfred is King. The story and characters are quite good and the production also quite believable. Not quite as good as Vikings perhaps but certainly close.

"Great! Just waiting for the next season!"

Superb Bernard Cornwell. Well adapted to a TV with a great cast.

"Seeks authenticity of Saxon/Norse times and troubles."

Purchased on Mighty Ape

Hard to recreate such outstanding novels but does a fairly good job. Unfortunate that some of the storylines have been missed.Would like to think Uhtred looked more rugged and meaner. Still, we can't have the hero blending in too fully can we-

Description

The year is 872, and many of the separate kingdoms of what we now know as England have fallen to the invading Danes, leaving the great kingdom of Wessex standing alone and defiant under the command of King Alfred. Against this turbulent backdrop lives our hero, Uhtred.

Born the son of a Saxon nobleman, he is captured by the Danes and raised as one of their own. Forced to choose between the country of his birth and the people of his upbringing, his loyalties are ever tested.

What is he? Saxon or Dane?

On a quest to reclaim his birthright, Uhtred must tread a dangerous path between both sides if he is to play his part in the birth of a new nation and, ultimately, recapture his ancestral lands.

Reviews

“This should brighten up the long, Thrones-less winter.” – Daily Telegraph

“With high production values, strong writing, and compelling characters, The Last Kingdom rivals some of the best and bloodiest epics on TV – a good thing, considering it's a pretty crowded race.” – Common Sense Media

“The Last Kingdom, remarkably, already feels lived in, the focus on character motivation and thematic depth making sure that the show is more than just an excuse to watch Vikings and Englishmen rip each other apart.” – AV Club
