There are just four weeks left until the fifth season of Game of Thrones block-books our Monday evenings. That means those uninitiated in the world of Westeros are going to need to start marathoniong 10 episodes a week to stand a chance of blending in at the water cooler.
But there is another way to keep up with the murderous chat that's a darn sight more interesting than reading Wikipedia summaries.
The team of 1A4 Studio has partnered with Vanity Fair to create a series of 60-second 'Quick Draw' videos, recapping the lives of key characters in the battle for the Iron Throne. Following Ned Stark's bloody short, summaries for Khal Drogo, Joffrey Baratheon and Robb Stark have joined the rostra.
Be warned: given that they revisit the previous seasons in brief, there are spoilers aplenty.
