Game Of Thrones Documentary Shows Emilia Clarke's Last Moment Of Filming

Whatever you think about the latest season of Game of Thrones - and there are some strong opinions out there - it has been a huge and impressive feat of TV. With that in mind, a documentary about how it is made will surely be an interesting watch, right?

Well, good news! Game of Thrones: The Last Watch will premiere a week after the conclusion of the final series on Sky Atlantic, and it will show us all the inner workings of the biggest undertaking in TV history.

One of the things that we see is the whole cast at a table-read through of the script, and the last ever shot that was filmed by Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen.

No, that doesn't mean that we're about to show you a spoiler for next week, although we all know by now how that is working out for her, but it looks like it was at the Battle of Winterfell a few weeks ago.

Outside of whatever you might make of how the characters' narrative arcs have worked out, and whether or not you're happy with how the pace has picked up since the TV series departed from author George R.R. Martin's original source material, it's worth taking into account that nothing like this has ever been attempted on the small screen before.

As one of the crew rightly points out, each single episode of this dramatic final season has been more like filming a feature film.

They've certainly come a long way since there were extras roaming around in the background wearing Patagonia jackets, jeans, and boots.

It promises to be emotional, too. After all, cast members like Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams started the show when they were 13 and 12 years old respectively.

This has been a big part of the lives of everyone involved. It's been a big part of the recent growth in Northern Ireland. It's been big, basically.

With that in mind, park your aspersions about how it has all turned out for a bit - there's nothing we can do about it now, anyway - and marvel at the sheer scale, the raw emotion, and human drama that has taken place over eight seasons of Game of Thrones.

We might not always agree with the decisions they've made, but we might one day understand why they made them.
