Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon has been criticised over the lack of trigger warnings for a graphic birth scene in its first episode.

But it’s not the first show to hit the headlines over a lack of such warnings.

Netflix series 13 Reasons Why changed a series one scene in 2019, after criticism of how it handled suicide, while more recently fans of Thor: Love and Thunder called for warnings over cancer scenes.

A record-breaking 10 million fans watched the House of the Dragon premiere, which contained a graphic scene called “triggering” by many people on social media.

Charities and some people who watched the show think there should be a trigger warning to let people know the gruesome scene is coming up.
