Presto adds The Bastard Executioner to its December lineup

With a title like that, you can guess that this isn’t a series for everybody.

The Bastard Executioner is available to stream on Presto from today, and as you might expect with a title like that, it’s not a series aimed at the entire family.

Starring Wilkin Brattle, Katey Segal and Stephen Moyer, it’s a dark medieval tale set in 14th century north Wales that tells the story of a warrior given divine inspiration to lay down his battle sword and instead become a journeyman executioner. As you do.

Yes, that’s a weird precis for a series, but the trailer is rather evocative of certain other series. We’re pretty sure you can work out which ones.

The Bastard Executioner joins Presto’s existing announced lineup for December.

Can’t pick between Presto, Stan or Netflix? You can compare each service’s December offerings right here.
