Game of Thrones Back in the UK on April 7th

Sky Atlantic HD today announces that the highly anticipated, ten-episode fourth season of HBO’s drama epic Game of Thrones will return to the channel on Monday 7 April at 9pm, less than 24 hours after it returns in the US.

Of all the reasons I could bring to your attention to be excited for this new series, I think the one I’m going to opt for is the topical and timely casting of the incredible Mark Gatiss as Tycho Nestoris of the Iron Bank of Braavos. Whether this will be a significant role or not time will only tell (I haven’t read the books), but you can’t deny that Gatiss’ brand of passive aggressive diplomacy as Mycroft in Sherlock, would certainly make him fit right into the villainous band of schemers Westeros calls home.
