The phenomenally successful TV series Game of Thrones is nearing its conclusion with the deadly threat of the White Walkers; creatures who dwell north of the Wall of Westeros.
Winter is coming in a new collection of stamps honouring Britain's contribution to Game of Thrones. The Royal Mail has unveiled a set of 15 first-class stamps featuring characters from the fantasy TV show, which will go on sale later this month.
New Game of Thrones stamp set unveiled
The stamp set celebrates British contributions to the hit US fantasy series, Royal Mail says.
The HBO series, based on the books by George RR Martin, is filmed principally in Northern Ireland and has a mainly British and Irish cast. The stamps include the "Mother of Dragons" Daenerys Targaryen, played by Emilia Clarke, Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) and Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey).
Other characters to feature are Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance), Eddard Stark (Sean Bean), Olenna Tyrell (Dame Diana Rigg), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), and Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau).
Five stamps include images of the Night King and the White Walkers, giants, direwolves and dragons, and of course the famous Iron Throne. The collection's release comes ahead of the eighth and final series of Game of Thrones, which is currently in production. Most of the filming on the previous seven series has taken place at Titanic Studios in Belfast, Linen Mill Studios in Banbridge and on location across Northern Ireland, while some scenes were shot in Scotland.
Fans can pre-order online, this Game of Thrones merchandise now, from the Royal Mail website and buy them from 23rd January 2018, at Post Office branches across the UK or by calling Royal Mail's customer service line (Tel: 0845 600 3210):
It is ironic that the latest Game of Thrones series starts with the ominous warning that “Winter is Coming”. The children of Westeros are raised hearing stories of "the Long Night," when man first encountered the White Walkers, an ancient race of ice creatures looking to devour all things good and cover the lands in ice and snow. The Wall of Westeros was designed to keep out all these baddy, zombie like creatures.
A parallel can be drawn this winter, with the HBO (Home Box Office - American premium cable and satellite television network) hack that saw spoilers for Game of Thrones and complete unseen episodes of other shows released in a massive data breach. A wall of cyber security could not keep these baddies. Hackers claimed to have stolen 1.5 terabytes of data and are threatening to leak even more content, it emerged, after the group illegally broke into HBO's computer networks. The hackers have apparently already leaked what appears to be the personal data of at least one senior HBO executive, including details of her finance and health plan. Leaked stolen information also provided a link to the script for the fourth Game of Thrones episode, with the hackers promising that there was much more to come.

Entertainment firm HBO is facing another cyber breach, as it social media accounts are compromised.
