Game of thrones

monday / Sky ATLANTIC My team have all been talking about the muchanticipated return of the fantasy drama, which sees Jim Broadbent join the cast for series seven. We look at how the show has taken the world by storm.
pic battles on land and sea, and dragons unleashed in all their fire-breathing glory are promised when the muchanticipated seventh and penultimate season of Game of Thrones airs this week.
The fantasy drama, based on George RR Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels, has steadily grown in popularity – the last series attracted an average audience of 25 million per episode worldwide.
But for all its global appeal, there’s a distinctly local feel to proceedings. Jim Broadbent, who joins the drama this run, describes it as ‘A misshapen Great Britain!’ Dame Diana Rigg and Charles Dance are among the many British luminaries who have taken roles, the show’s break-out stars Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke are also Brits, and filming locations have included sites in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
So, for both fans and those yet to be enthralled, we give you six reasons why you must watch the seventh installment of Game of Thrones.
