07Episode 7: Sigrid20190528

By Lucy Catherine.

Set in the 11th century, the series follows Gudrun in the New World, and her estranged daughter Sigrid in England. Both mother and daughter have reasons to seek forgiveness as they forge a path through lands of unearthly beauty and uncompromising harshness.

Sigrid escaped the wrath of her intended husband when he was killed by his Saxon neighbours. Now she's a fugitive on the run in the English wilderness, with only the boy Canute as company.

Sigrid ..... Hollie Burgess
The Virgin ..... Marilyn Nnadebe
Tofa ..... Debbie Korley
Saxon ..... Joseph Ayre
Gorm ..... David Hounslow
Canute ..... Aaron Gelkoff

Notes:

The series is inspired by the famous Icelanders' saga known as The Laxdoela Saga. Written in the 13th century, it tells of people in the Breiðafjörður area of Iceland from the late 9th century to the early 11th century. The Laxdæla saga remains popular and appreciated for its poetic beauty and pathetic sentiment. Since the saga has often been regarded as an unusually feminine saga, it has been speculated that it was composed by a woman.
