Brace yourselves. Season four is coming.
A new trailer for the latest series of HBO's fantasy epic Game of Thrones has emerged from the drizzle of January - a beacon of hope, promising morally-questionable drama and a spring spent in front of the TV.
Season three ended with quite the bloody bang, and given that we're the smug "already read the books" types, we can promise you that season four (which arrives on Sky Atlantic on 7 April) will be just as grizzly. As the trailer hints, you can expect flights of dragons, scores of put-downs and grave quantities of death.
