#3. Seven Kings Must Die review
Source: Radio Times
A synopsis for the Seven Kings Must Die feature film reads: "For a century war has raged through the land between its inhabitants and the Danish invaders. But now a peace has settled with the country nearly united – only Lord Uhtred of Bebbanburg, ruling over Northumbria, is yet to pledge his land to the throne.
"But when King Edward dies the peace is threatened as his two potential heirs, Aethelstan and Aelfweard, battle to claim the crown. When Uhtred hears that Aethelstan – once his ward and protégé ‐ is to fight, he rides to help him secure victory, but the young prince has fallen under a dark influence and is not the same boy Uhtred once knew. And when Aethelstan’s actions threatens the life Uhtred has known, Uhtred must decide where his loyalties lie – with the king, or with his homeland.
"Meanwhile, a new threat has reached these shores – the Danish Warrior‐King Anlaf has arrived, hoping to wreak chaos and use the discord for his own ends. As Aethelstan’s actions make enemies across the British Isles, Anlaf brings the king’s enemies together in a great alliance that threatens the vision of uniting England. And when the alliance comes seeking Uhtred’s help in their plans, Uhtred faces a choice between those he cares for most, and the dream of a united kingdom."
#4. Why isn't there a season six of The Last Kingdom?
At MCM London Comic Con last year, Alexander Dreymon said the plan was always to end the series with season five. This was because when the series first aired back in 2015, there were only 10 books that Bernard Cornwell had written.
The actor explained: "When we started shooting the show there were ten books that Bernard Cornwell had written. And we had structured the show in a way that season five was always going to be the last season."
However following the publication of extra books, executive producer Nigel Marchant told RadioTimes last year that the team spoke to Netflix fairly early about whether they could "tell that end piece of the jigsaw so that it would feel complete".
Nigel said: "It was felt that the movie version was the right format to do that. Season 5 does feel like the end of the TV series, and the movie will be much more stand-alone.
