It’s official: HBO have bought into making a full series of GRRM’s A Game of Thrones after shooting a pilot last autumn. Sean Bean gets to die (again), Lena Headey gets to play an ambitious queen (again), and Harry Lloyd gets to be evil (again). No type-casting here, oh no.

Now to control both my impatience and my expectations.

FAIL.

Edit: And HBO don’t appear to have let slip any clips from the pilot. I’m dying to see some footage. I’ve not been this excited since Lord of the Rings. It appears my inner fangirl never, ever learns.
