The Last Kingdom was a major hit amongst period-drama fans and historical fiction lovers. The setting of the show and the environment established by the cinematography crew and the designers transported the viewers to that era. Not only this, the costume designed for the show, the makeup and the thick British accent that had to be adopted by the actors really brought the book to life.

According to sources, the scriptwriter of the show included as much of the book as possible in the script for the show. The director too in order to maintain the sanctity of the show shot the scenes at dawn and dusk, odd hours of the day to give it a more rustic and authentic touch.
