In the ninth century, Anglo-Saxon lands are attacked and in many instances ruled by Viking forces. The main protagonist, Uhtred - the orphaned son of a Saxon nobleman, is kidnapped by norsemen and raised as one of them. Forced to choose between a kingdom that shares his ancestry and the people of his upbringing, his loyalties are ever tested.
FOR CONCLUDED SHOWS
Not much to add but the fact that as the shows were airing, they were on my list of top 5 to watch first, every week. Even wish some series running more seasons than I normally think should be avg. for a show, but I still find myself wanting the shows to comeback.
