Das hebt die Serie qualitativ auf ein hohes Niveau und wirkt als angenehmer Gegenpol zu den Actionszenen.
Julie Müller. Die ersten 4 Folgen der 1. Staffel verlangten von mir Sitzfleisch, doch dann war ich plötzlich am Haken.
Die Serie wurde in den ersten beiden Staffeln eng so eng wie möglich an der literarischen Vorlage umgesetzt. Ansehnliche bis hohe Schauspielkunst David Dawson als Alfred!
Ch geben der Serie hohes Suchtpotenzial. Die Charaktere bekommen von Staffel zu Staffel mehr Tiefe- oder finden für Nicht-Leser der Uhtred-Saga unerwartet ihr Ende.
Ab Staffel 3 nahmen sich die Drehbuchautoren zwar mehr Freiheiten, doch aus meiner Sicht ist dies gut gelungen. Die Geschichte bleibt im Kern erhalten, die zwischenmenschlichen Beziehungen sind nachvollziehbar und liebevoll gezeichnet.
Zudem scheint der gesamte Cast mit grosser Lust am Spiel dabei zu sein. Also, für mich ist diese Serie ein Fest.
Dorothee Schönig. Staffel 2 Kritik. Eine der wenigen Serien die mit jeder Staffel besser werden! Normalerweise ist die erste ja die beste und dann lässt es nach!
Bei LTK ist es genau anders herum!! Volker M. Staffel 1 war etwas langatmig und düster, Staffel 2 ist sehr zu empfehlen, nimmt sehr an fahrt auf.

All Critics 31 Top Critics 19 Fresh 27 Rotten 4. Uhtred's trials intensify when he joins Alfred's quest to unite the kingdoms into England, creating an epic backdrop for a handsome, stellar cast and expert storytellers to weave television's latest addictive historical fiction.
Isn't in the same league as that other medievalesque literary adaptation Game of Thrones, nor does it have the epic scope of Vikings.
But its breathtaking photography, glorious fight scenes, and fantastical story make it a worthwhile treat for genre fans. There is plenty of spectacle in The Last Kingdom, but none quite as spellbinding as Alfred's quiet intelligence.
There are admittedly few better ways to open an engagingly grimy and gory adventure show about the 9th century Viking invasion of the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms than with the title card: "Special Guest Star Rutger Hauer.
The series has been described in advance as the BBC's answer to Game of Thrones. Yet, apart perhaps from the level of the violence, the programme's real roots seem to belong to less sophisticated and less expensive shows.
The Last Kingdom looks like a cross between History's Vikings and HBO's Game of Thrones, but over the course of its first two seasons, it establishes itself as a show that can stand on its own two feet without the comparisons.
A mix of historical and fictional characters, The Last Kingdom presents the birth of Britain as an uneasy alliance between the Christian Alfred, the sickly but learned and wise youngest son of King Aethelwulf, and the pagan peoples The Saxon Stories, Bernard Cornwell's novel series on which the show is based, are undoubtedly compelling reads.
But as a television adaptation, The Last Kingdom is too little, too late, and comes across as too unoriginal.
