I know that Game of Thrones has never been shy about running its characters though with a dozen sharp blades before sewing their severed head onto the body of their dead Direwolf, but this is a different kind of overkill. Deadline has the details, noting that Game of Thrones series creators and showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will be credited as executive producers on any spin-offs, but won’t have any involvement in the writing (possibly because they are tired).

Missandei's translations for Daenerys and her entourage are the work of David Peterson, the linguist who created Dothraki, High Valyrian and multiple dialects of Low Valyrian. By his own estimate, Peterson has crafted over 5,000 words. Peterson shares the unique challenges of creating languages for the show, writing dialogue for Dany and what 'Monty Python' has to do with Meereen. HBO: How did the culture of Essos influence you the languages you created? David Peterson: Two major factors come into play. The second factor is their level of technology. HBO: Was your process similar for creating Valyrian?

David Peterson: Valyrian is a very different type of language. In that sense, it's been difficult for me. That isn't the same with the Low Valyrian speakers.

There is no disguising George RR Martin’s sources when he wrote Game of Thrones.

Game of Thrones has hacked our history

He’s quite open about it. History, he says, is “endlessly fascinating ... the wars and battles and seductions and betrayals ... so many things that you’d be hard pressed to make up”. So, “I don’t make it up; I take it and I file off the serial numbers and I turn it up to 11.” The TV fantasy drama series that shocks and appals in equal measure returns to UK screens on Monday, with millions of fans in eager anticipation. Chief among the historical stories that Martin has turned up to 11 are, of course, the 15th-century Wars of the Roses.
