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.
