Director admits series finale was "really rushed"

Game of Thrones director Neil Marshall has revealed that he would have taken a "different approach" to the series' finale, which he agrees was "really rushed".

While Marshall directed key episodes such as 'Blackwater' and 'The Watchers on the Wall', he admitted it would have been difficult to question showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss when it came to the final few instalments.

"It’s very difficult to second guess those guys because they are geniuses and they have done such an amazing job," he told

"Inevitably, I would’ve taken a different approach to directing. One of the greatest experiences I had with working on both those episodes was that they were so open to bringing my ideas, particularly about battle scenes and how battles worked. I would’ve definitely added my strategy and knowledge to that."

Marshall even went on to agree with the copious fans who criticised the entire final season for being rushed.

"I kind of agree with a lot of the criticism that it was really rushed. Everyone ended up where they were meant to end up but they got there in a little bit of a rush in the end."

This comes after the comments of George RR Martin, who recently said that the show wasn't "completely faithful" to his books.

Oh well, maybe they'll spend a bit more time working on the millions of upcoming prequel shows.
