This dropped today. Yet to see it, but as last season was very good, I'm really looking forward to it. But I'll miss Alfred.
Upping the thread. Series 4 was very good, albeit Alfred's absence is palpable. Aethelflaed continues being awesome. Edward tries and fails, and tries again. I like that he's very much imperfect.
I thought doing the "party A just misses party B" trick twice was a bit lazy storytelling, but otherwise the series was pretty solid.
Good thing though, the show has been renewed for series 5 - once the situation permits production. And the final book (number 13) is being published this year, so we're looking at 6 or 7 series in total, all being well.
Aethelflaed is definitely my favorite character in all this. I also have far more appreciation for Aelswith than ever before. Aedward should just listen to them and all would be well.
(relatedly, strange Saxon spelling is fun -- the whole name-changing thing with the establishing shots is still my favorite).
(Also it's hard to understate how little I care about Utred, for me this story is about Wessex )
