Against this turbulent backdrop lives our hero, Uhtred. Born the son of a Saxon nobleman, he is captured by the Danes and raised as one of their own. Forced to choose between the country of his birth and the people of his upbringing, his loyalties are ever tested. What is he? Saxon or Dane? On a quest to reclaim his birthright, Uhtred must tread a dangerous path between both sides if he is to play his part in the birth of a new nation and, ultimately, recapture his ancestral lands. Directed by: Nick Murphy, Anthony Byrne, Ben Chanan, Peter Hoar Written by: Stephen Butchard, based on Bernard Cornwell’s The Saxon Stories Cast: Alexander Dreymon, David Dawson, Jason Flemyng and Matthew Macfadyen
