Spring is coming. And with it a new season of HBO's wintry celebration of incest and backstabbing that is Game of Thrones. The highbrow US TV maker says the fourth series of the fantasy gorefest will start on 6 April in the US. Last year Sky aired episodes on Monday nights after airing on Sundays in the US, so expect to see it in the UK on 7 April.
That's a week later than the show debuted last year, in order to avoid competition from fellow nerd-gatherer The Walking Dead, according to a report in Hollywood gossip rag Variety.
