Storyline

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.

Trivia

Danes shared the same ethnic background with the Angles, Saxons and Jutes who had migrated to Britain from Denmark and Northern Germany some four centuries ago. Thus, they were technically kin. See more »

Goofs

Lots of the women are seen wearing knitted shawls, often using a cable stitch. Knitting did not reach the UK until medieval times, probably from the middle east via Spain. See more »

This show will pull you in if you give it a chance, a well done historical drama
30 October 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I've heard of the books but have yet to read them. I binged watched the 1st 3 episodes so far, and was surprised that I really liked the adaptation. I've seen other pieces of this period (The Vikings, The Bastard Executioner) recently and liked this much more. I'm sort of glad I didn't read the Cornwell's books before seeing the show, as I did with the Outlander Series. I was constantly comparing the Outlander books to the show and disappointed at times that it was not same as the books which I loved. I'm sure the readers of Bernard Cornwell's books will be doing the same. However, not knowing the original story, I can just judge the show on what I see presented.

So far, I really like the story. I like the acting all the characters are doing a great job. I very much like Alexander Dreymon's portrayal of Uhtred. He brings the character to life. His acting makes me root for the character, and makes me want to see him succeed in gaining his land's back. I also liked Emily Cox portrayal of Brida, Uhtred's strength, I'm curious as to why Uhtred let her go back to the Danes when he obviously loves her. Their story has captured my interest and I'm looking forward to the rest of the episode. My one disappointment, was that I was sorry to see Matthew Macfadyen was only in the 1st episode. I really like Mathew's acting and would of liked to see more of him. But that being said, the casting is brilliant. All the characters seem to fit my impression of who they should be.

BBC does a great job with its historical dramas. I don't think you can go wrong watching this show. I'm glad I've something else I like now that I have to wait for more of the Outlander series. This will do nicely.

Watch out Sam Heughan, Alexander Dreymon has that same sex appeal.
