For a year, acclaimed British filmmaker Jeanie Finlay was embedded on the set of the hit HBO series "Game of Thrones," chronicling the creation of the show's most ambitious and complicated season. Debuting one week after the series finale, GAME OF THRONES: THE LAST WATCH delves deep into the mud and blood to reveal the tears and triumphs involved in the challenge of bringing the fantasy world of Westeros to life in the very real studios, fields and car-parks of Northern Ireland. Made with unprecedented access, GAME OF THRONES: THE LAST WATCH is an up-close and personal portrait from the trenches of production, following the crew and the cast as they contend with extreme weather, punishing deadlines and an ever-excited fandom hungry for spoilers. Much more than a "making of" documentary, this is a funny, heartbreaking story, told with wit and intimacy, about the bittersweet pleasures of what it means to create a world - and then have to say goodbye to it.Written by
At about the 3 minute mark, there's a shot of "detail reports" with character names hand-written in the corners in marker. The detail for Arya is spelled A-Y-R-A. See more »

Does not live up to the potential given it is making off of one of the best shows of all time
Given were talking about one of the best shows ever in the history of television I think behind the scenes documentary for the last season would have enormous potential
And I can say that in my view The Last Watch fails to live up to their potential
Why? Firstly because you would want to hear from the main actors and from the writers - controversy aside - the producers, etc.
Instead, most of the time is focused on a prosthetic artist (sure, she has a struggle by being away from their family but waay too much time is spent on this) and believe it or not on the Head of Snow, yes
the person responsiblee for coordinating the amount of snow in each of the scenes
Obviously these people are important for the show and convey the amount of man hours and work that going it to making, but it is not the ones I would like to hear from when such an epic journey reaches its final Destination
HBO had a small chance of giving a treat to some of the fans that were disappointed by season 8 and in my view failed to seize the opportunity
