The Last Kingdom (BBC America) – Starts 10th October – Renewed
Period drama set during the viking invasion of Blighty. During a battle between vikings and a local army the unscrupulous danes kidnap the heir to the region in the shape of a small boy called Uhtred. The kid is raised as one of their own until an internal dispute leads to Ragnar being murdered and the town burned to the ground.
With now adult Uhtred being framed for the murder he scarpers to Wessex and ends up helping the future King Alfred to fight the vikings and help in the creation of a unified England.
Like an english take on Vikings, and well worth a watch.
