As we anxiously await the next (and final) run of the top-rated HBO fantasy show based on (and pulling ahead of) George R R Martin’s epic novels – to be shown sometime in 2019 – there’s at least the chance to keep in touch with fellow fans… and by a method almost as speedy as Westeros ravens.
The UK Post Office will be issuing a celebration set and first day cover based around the show. There will be a variety of presentation options available (special folders, packs etc) but the ten characters who will feature in the set are: Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) and Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister). Characters Stark (Sean Bean) and Olenna Tyrell (Dame Diana Rigg) also are in the mix, with Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jaime Lannister rounding out the set.
There will also be an additional five-stamp sheet that will feature the Night King (and his undead White Walkers) along with giants, direwolves, dragons and the Iron Throne itself.
