    Ten days to go before the new season starts - at last! I'm very much looking forward to it.

    In order to fully enjoy the new episodes and to freshen up my memory it's been a long, long winter - I started to watch the first season again. Oh joy. Unlike the first time that I saw the show, I now know the whole backdrop of the characters and all their future entanglements. Suddenly it's easy to see tiny allusions to things to come, references that I missed the first time et cetera.

    This series is well-made indeed. Very well-made.

    Werthead added Oona Chaplin to the pool of actors: in an interview published yesterday, Chaplin announced that she has secured a part in Game of Thrones. She didn't mention which part, however.

    So: place your bets. Who will she be?

    My money is on Ygritte :)
