Fabulous show - intelligently scripted and cleverly produced. There are very few familiar names (unless you have watched a lot of British TV) but the cast are excellent and Alex Dreymon wonderfully captures the feisty and irreverent essence of Uhtred. Hats off to the BBC with this one.
WOW... Incredibly entertaining!
The first two episodes were brilliant. Room to expand the storyline for years to come. Strong characters and enjoyable plots. Highly recommend.
This show is based on the Saxon Tales series of historical novels by Bernard Cornwell. The show is necessarily abridged, but it sticks to the essence and character of the books remarkably well. The casting is excellent. Not exactly how I imagined every character, but some are spot on while the others are close enough. I am excited to see how far they take the TV series! I hope to the last book, which is yet to be published, coming this January, 2016.
