THE WITCHER

(Netflix)

- PAUL NOLAN

If Ride Upon The Storm whets your appetite for more quality fare starring the brilliant Lars Mikkelsen, we’d recommend checking out Netflix fantasy hit The Witcher, which debuted in December of 2019.

Based on the series of books by Polish author Andrej Sapkowski, the show is set on medieval landmass the Continent, and explores the legend of Geralt of Rivia and Princess Ciri, who destiny has linked together. With

Man Of Steel/Mission Impossible star Henry Cavill and Freya Allan excelling as the two leads, there are also superb performanc­es from the supporting cast, including Mikkelsen as Stregobor, the rector of mage academy Ban Ard.

The good news for Witcher fans is that season two recently commenced shooting in the UK, with new cast members including Peaky Blinders’ Paul Bullion and

Game Of Thrones’ Kristofer Hivju. Set to launch in 2021, it will no doubt be another irresistib­le mix of action and intrigue.All together now.,”Toss a coin to your Witcher..”
