Winter is here. The Long Night has settled in, and the seemingly eternal wait for summer is well underway.
Game of Thrones has only been off our screen a few months, but it already seems a lifetime. What's worse is that the time between seasons is even longer now, thanks to the arrival of winter in Westeros. No more can we dream of spring, but instead have to look forward to the show starting at the time it's usually ending.
With filming pushed back to account for the new climate in Westeros, it's meant we've had to wait a bit longer for the usual snippets of information to start coming out. Now that production is very much in full swing, though, they are trickling out - and there are some biggies.
Like last year brought early talk of the Battle of the Bastards, so too are the winds of winter carrying a number of rumours and set-leaks. All are quite exciting, though a lot of them might be bullsh*t, or not what they seem (a set photo doesn't carry any context, after all). Nonetheless, spoilers are coming.
NCTJ-qualified journalist. Most definitely not a racing driver. Drink too much tea; eat too much peanut butter; watch too much TV. Sadly only the latter paying off so far.
A mix of wise-old man in a young man's body with a child-like wonder about him and a great otherworldly sensibility.
