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

The relationship between the Danes and the Saxons is thought to also be a link in language. Unlike the need for translators noted in the Vikings series, philologists suggest that the Danes and Saxons could communicate fairly well, much as a Spaniard and Portuguese can in our time with a little effort.

So far, i'm happy
30 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

I am a big fan of the books, so I was worried that this would not work for me.

I am not one of the fan boys who expects the on screen version to word for word and scene for scene mimic the exact story line from the novels, so I wasn't raging around my living room when Uhtred's childhood wasn't given 4 episodes to develop. I am only two episodes in and it seems tales from uhtred's childhood are being told, but he is witnessing them as a adult instead, and I can see why, with time constraints, this has been done. If things like this annoy you, then just re read the books, and rant to yourself about how much of a better job you would have done, but nobody would trust you with.

I have spent the last 10 years casting this in my head, who I would get to play the characters, never envisaging a time when it would be made, and I must admit, I am impressed with the casting. I especially think Ubba is spot on.

All in all so far, I am very happy. Things are different, but I can accept that, I think it is going to be excellent, and lets the BBC's budget allows for the full tale to be told through to when Bernard calls a day on Uhthred.
