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.

Uhtred son of Uhtred
11 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'll admit I've read just about everything Bernard Cornwell has ever written, and thoroughly enjoyed the premiere. After slogging through the Bastard Executioner, this series is refreshingly straight forward. Some high points: The depiction of a shield wall was awesome, Ravn is perfectly cast, uhtred as a child was great, the opening credits . Not sure about: How the casting of adult Uhtred will pan out, would be nice to see some development of Brida's character, how much plot can be crammed into each episode? I'm a bit disappointed that so much of the plot was condensed into episode one. Those unfamiliar with Cornwell's work might not enjoy the series quite as much.
