"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"--From

Very much enjoyed this series. Great narrative, acting that makes you believe the actors are their characters, plus impressive landscapes and convincing sets. It's also well worth watching the documentary footage about the making of the sets, costumes, etc. Thoroughly recommended.

Very well-developed characters, including valiant and strong women. The care taken with costumes and make-up bring the period to life, and also the story line follows the lives of Uhtred and Alfred. I must read the books now!

Loved it even though I expected not to. Hope there is a season 2 to watch.

Excellent historical series; action packed, great set and costuming. English King Alfred (the Great) faces Viking invaders. Fans of the Viking series and Games of Thrones should really enjoy this series based on the novels by Bernard Cornwell.

Very well done. Some parts are a bit stretched.

Wish I could give it ten stars, it has all the excitement and charm of the novels -- well done.
