BBCs The Last Kingdom (shields!?)

I just finished watching episode three. Although not a bad show and some very good story telling. Some of the technology is wrong. My main focus is the Saxon shields, a square shield? And plain? 

This is very wrong, Saxon shields are round and they painted with a standard crest, they would of used a red and white round shield for Wessex. And why are they saying they wouldn’t know a shield wall? This is incorrect during the time period they would of known Roman battle technics and probably could perform a successful shield wall. 

The costomes annoy me also, the elite wealthy Vikings and Saxons would of had more intricate dress and armour.

  
  

Has Doctor Who lost the plot?

Have you watched the latest Doctor Who? Did you even understand what was going on? The plot was so thin and poorly delivered no amount of acting, scenes, settings can help if you don’t have a story to deliver. The only real good thing was the music, it did add to the show. But that still doesn’t save this episode. It took so long to get going and then… well nothing really happened.

For heavens sake BBC. get some decent writers!
