Review

As Game of Thrones enters its third season, there’s no escaping the shadow of the dragon that adorns every shred of publicity material – or the fact that series two culminated in our first proper glimpse of chilling supernatural army the White Walkers. Yet this is the sword-and-sorcery drama that always ensures its characters speak louder than its fantasy elements.

Fans will be looking forward in particular to discovering how the politically sidelined Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) aims to work his way back into influence, while intriguing new personnel include Diana Rigg as Tyrell matriarch Lady Olenna — aka the Queen of Thorns — and Mackenzie Crook’s wildling “skinchanger” Orell.

Summary

In King's Landing, Sansa grows in confidence under the watchful eye of the Machiavellian Lord Baelish, while Tyrion is after his just reward for the part he played in the Battle of the Blackwater. In the far North, Jon Snow is brought before formidable wildling leader Mance Rayder (Ciaran Hinds) and attempts to earn the trust of the King-beyond-the-Wall. Across the Narrow Sea, Daenerys Targaryen arrives in Slaver's Bay with adviser Ser Jorah Mormont looking to form an army. Fantasy drama based on George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series of novels, starring Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington.
