I’m always surprised at how fast a series can whizz by when you’re really into it. Game of Thrones is, I have no doubt now, the best show on TV at the present moment. And, of course, we are at the end of season four.
Whereas at the last season, I felt that the plot arc had dragged, padded out to fit ten episodes, here I think they have room for a few more. The story has pelted along at a frightening pace, with some truly well-made episodes. And the last of these is tantalisingly titled “The Children”.
