While Uhtred’s position as a hero torn between two worlds is central, it’s also not elevated much above the larger context of the story the show tells so consistently well.

There’s plenty of testosterone running through The Last Kingdom’s veins, though there is a potentially strong female perspective courtesy of the character of Brida (Emily Cox), a slave girl who becomes Uhtred’s lover, his closest confidant and an indispensable partner in battle.

The series has taken on a life of its own, offering a reminder that there’s always room, at least on a niche basis, for another good one.
