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

Most Angles and Saxons of the time had longer hair than is portrayed in the show. Maybe not as long as most Danes and Norsemen of the same period but they were neither short haired nor clean shaven. In most Germanic cultures (Saxons and Danes were both of Germanic stock) only slaves (thralls) wore their hair cropped short. See more »

Goofs

Alfred's crown features the Fleur-de-lis, which was not used by Anglo-Saxon royalty. See more »

Nothing but good things await!
26 October 2015 | by pipeace72-594-726054See all my reviews

Another BBC series hit! I am a big fan of Vikings, and am therefore suspicious of all imitations. But I must say that I am loving this show! The atmosphere and backdrop have a very authentic feel and the acting is superb. My favorites characters of this series are Uhtred and King Alfred. Uhtred's identity dilemma and King Alfred's presence as a wise and noble king are captivating. Their chemistry with each other creates a very interesting drama as they go back and forth with each other. As good as the characters and writing are, it is the acting that breath life into both. Make it part of your weekly viewing and you'll be rewarded. Well done!
