HBO has released a bonus two-hour documentary of Game of Thrones. Directed by British filmmaker Jeanie Finlay, the film shows the creation of the show’s most ambitious and controversial season. The Last Watch: production of Glimmer Films aired 9 to 11 p.m this Sunday on HBO Go and HBO NOW. Game Of Thrones is over and many are still heartbroken but this documentary might just be exactly the kind of closure the show deserved.

The official description for the episode on HBO reads: “Game of Thrones: The Last Watch delves deep into the mud and blood to reveal the tears and triumphs involved in the challenge of bringing the fantasy world of Westeros to life in the very real studios, fields and car-parks of Northern Ireland. Made with unprecedented access, Game of Thrones: The Last Watch is an up-close and personal report from the trenches of production, following the crew and the cast as they contend with extreme weather, punishing deadlines and an ever-excited fandom hungry for spoilers. Much more than a ‘making of' documentary, this is a funny, heartbreaking story, told with wit and intimacy, about the bittersweet pleasures of what it means to create a world — and then have to say goodbye to it.”

This is Jeanie Finlay’s eighth feature film. Her previous credits include documentaries like Seahorse, Orion: The Man Who Would Be King, Pantomime, The Great Hip Hop Hoax, Sound It Out and Goth Cruise. The documentary offers fans an in-depth look at the making of Game of Thrones season 8 and it has everything, from the table reads involving the cast and the creators to the creation of the massive sets . Twitter hashtag #TheLastWatch is trending and fans have so much say!

Game Of Thrones holds the record for the largest number of Primetime awards won and is the most watched HBO series of all time, surpassing even The Sopranos by several million viewers. The most emotional and popular scene from the documentary comes from the final table read where we see all the characters together getting emotional about their characters and when we hear in the background as the camera moves over crying cast members and crew. “This is strange. Here we are at the last table read, it’s like looking around and seeing your family.”

The Game is over and my watch has ended.
