The Last Kingdom BBC Two Trailer


Set during the year 872, virtually all of England’s kingdoms have now fallen into Viking hands. But despite the ruthless onslaught, King Alfred the Great is so far managing to keep the invaders out of Wessex – The Last Kingdom.

The stories hero Uhtred (Alexander Dreymon) is orphaned when the Vikings kill his Saxon nobleman father, after which the Norse invaders kidnap and raise Uhtred as their own. With mixed heritage, Uhtred must decide where his true loyalties now lay – with the people of his original homeland or with those who raised him.
