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...

User Reviews

 
An amazing show that will keep you wanting more.
20 November 2018 | by DeminosSee all my reviews

Without going into too much detail, this show will slowly but surely get you attached to the main character Uhtred son of Uhtred. The immersion that this show provides leaves you stunned at times and it never fails to disappoint in terms of character development. It shows how a man who carries himself with honor and conviction doesn't always get what's due never the less that doesn't hinder him in pursuing his dreams and his birthright.
