Fans of historical epic dramas like Vikings or Game of Thrones (ok, GOT isn’t exactly historical, but you know what we mean – it has that whole medieval feel) will want to check out this one next. The show follows Uhtred (Alexander Dreymon), a headstrong warrior born into a Saxon noble family but raised by Viking Danes. Series two commences tonight and sees Uhtred head north to recapture his ancestral lands of Bebbanburg and to avenge the death of Earl Ragnar, the man who raised him. Meanwhile, King Alfred (David Dawson) sets on uniting the kingdoms of England and champions a new king - a Christian Dane - to exert his influence beyond Wessex.
