Game of Thrones: “Here be Dragons!” – by Olga A.
Picture yourself an idyllic walk alongside the sea, hair streaming in gentle breeze, on a scorching July morning. Then, all of a sudden, a forty foot-long head eclipses the sea view: the head brandishing a formidable set of gnashers and a terrifying coxcomb crest.
“We are not in Kansas anymore, Toto?”
No, this is not the Desolation of Smaug – or Red Keep, for that matter. The explanation is far more prosaic – as Blinkbox, the veteran of UK streaming services, has called upon some serious design magic to advertise the release of the Game of Thrones season 3 series made available for streaming.
Undoubtedly, this is going to be a popular tourist attraction (is it a sudden yearning for a weekend by the sea that I feel?). Although perhaps mixing together dragons and dinosaurs is never a wise idea (the latter had a lot less panache, for starters), Blinkbox have chosen a stretch of the aptly-named “Jurassic Coast” near Dorset as home for its new, fanged installation masterpiece.

About Reporter: Olga A.
Hailing from the swirling mists of London, I am a freelance journalist in my free time, and a huge fan of J R Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings,” as well as an admirer of the “Game of Thrones,” a worshipper of H P Lovecraft, a follower of R. Howard, a Star Wars aficionado and an Ursula Le Guin enthusiast. My other favourite things include Middle Eastern dance (sometimes somewhat discourteously referred to as “belly” dancing), Yoga, sunsets over the dreaming spires of Oxford and plush owls. Oh, and green tea too.
