The last episode in the current series of 'Game of Thrones' will be the longest so far, according to HBO.

It will last 69 minutes. That's 14 minutes longer than other episodes.

The episode will be called 'The Winds of Winter', which is also the name of the as-yet-unreleased sixth novel in George RR Martin's series.

HBO also released the name of the penultimate episode: 'Battle of the Bastards'. This too will be longer than a normal episode, at 60 minutes. The name suggests Jon Snow and Ramsay Bolton will finally fight for Winterfell.

The show airs on Sky Atlantic here in Britain. The premiere episode of this series was the most watched entertainment programme ever in Sky's history. However, it seems there's not much of the epic saga left to go. Recently it was revealed that series seven will only consist of seven episodes, fuelling previous rumours that the last two series will be severely truncated.

However, HBO is yet to release any details on forthcoming series. So there's hope for fans yet.
