I watched the first episode of this series and thought it was only kind a sort a ok, I found the dialog awkward and stiff at times and the action lackluster , did not pull me in.

His Danish accent? Or his English, which is pretty funny. Though does sound very skandinavian.

Yes, he is a Saxon who was brought up by a Dane in the Danelaw. He has never been to Denmark. However, does anyone really know how people spoke then? There is probably a great deal of academic study and argument, and there is language that survives within regional accents and regional words, but can we ever know for certain? I doubt it.

David Dawsen as King Alfred was brilliant in the series. He gave Alfred depth and us an insight into what kingship was possibly like at this time. His scenes with Uthred where always a highlight.
