The Last Kingdom: Seasons 1 – 5
The year is 872 and England is divided. In a clash of heroes one man, born Saxon but raised a Dane, must choose between the two and play his part in the birth of a kingdom. Visceral, action-packed, full of pagan ritual and dynastic drama, The Last Kingdom is an ensemble character drama about people fighting for their lives and their identity. Based on Bernard Cornwell's The Saxon Stories.
- " I'm already in the thrall of this somewhat peculiar series. " – Rachel Cooke (New Statesman)
- " 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. " – Kari Croop (Common Sense Media)
- " There are no dragons in Last Kingdom, or need for fantasy at all, for that matter. History proves every bit as engaging as make-believe. " – David Wiegand (San Francisco Chronicle)
