The End Is Nigh: Celebrating Five Seasons of MERLIN


 
As we say goodbye to MERLIN, it is time to take a quick look back at the series which swept us off our feet and into a magical world of kings and queens, wizards and dragons.  In fantasy lore there is no more famous name than Merlin; for everyone has heard of the young warlock and his nemesis Morgana – not to mention King Arthur, who was destined to pull a sword out of stone to unite the kingdom of Camelot.   When MERLIN debuted 5 years ago, fans across the globe were struck by the refreshing tale of how a young Merlin (Colin Morgan) came to meet his future king, then known as only Prince Arthur (Bradley James), and the infamous women that would shape their lives: Morgana (Katie McGrath) and Guinevere (Angel Coulby).  [Read more...]
