Take the Black: House of the Dragon rumors, Vikings surprise, and more


We talk about Matt Smith (maybe) being in House of the Dragon, Vikings jumping ship for Amazon Prime Video, Elliot Page coming out as trans, and more.

We’ve got a whopper of an episode of Take the Black for you to today. Watch below!

The biggest story here is the rumor that Matt Smith — of Doctor Who and The Crown may play Daemon Targaryen in House of the Dragon, HBO’s upcoming Game of Thrones prequel series. This is just a rumor, but it’s a juicy one we’re happy to talk about.

In other news, the final season of Vikings is premiering on…Amazon Prime Video, not History? What’s up with that? Also, we talk over the coming exodus of companions from Doctor Who, review the latest (excellent) episode of The Mandalorian, and congratulate Elliot Page on his coming out as trans!
