BBC’s “Last Kingdom” TV-series is based on Bernard Cornwell’s fantastic historic fiction novels about Uhtred of Bebbanburg. Season One is showing on the Discovery Channel in Europe. A season two has been confirmed.
In many ways History Channel’s “Vikings” about Ragnar and Rollo may have gotten a head start, but for entertaiment “Last Kingdom” is catching up and fast! And as credible historical fiction, “Last Kingdom” is clearly ahead!
