Full disclosure – This latest season of Game of Thrones is about as exciting as watching paint dry. Only without the psychotropic fumes (the obvious benefit of the paint drying pastime.)

Perhaps this will all change with next week’s instalment, Oathbreaker, in which the Kingslayer is asked to chop off a little girl’s head, Bran Stark enjoys another scene, despite the fact no-one wants him too and Jon Snow faces prejudices because of his questionable parentage FOR THE FOURTH SEASON RUNNING!
Seriously, those Dragons better make with the Flambé. And soon…
