With its thrilling mix of action, adventure and pure magic, the fourth series of Merlin will captivate the imagination as never before…

5.0 out of 5 stars MAGNIFICENTLY MAGICAL 17 July 2012
By Mr. D. L. Rees TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Onwards and upwards, the best season yet - tone ever darker, threats ever more real. Time and time again Camelot faces danger as Morgana, now openly evil, conjures up ancient forces to help her secure its throne. Here are thirteen episodes crammed with excitement, witchcraft and seriously scary moments - not least those screeching, swirling Spirits of the Dead. (BBBC1 screened the series later in the evening than before, a hint to parents of more adult content.)

Thankfully there is still humour, much of it in the banter between Merlin and Arthur - a great double act. Many sequences are also very moving - as when Arthur and knights mourn those dead or believed to be.

As the young Merlin, Colin Morgan is superb - totally likeable and self-effacing, conveying so much with just a look. Arthur increasingly appreciates his loyal (if clumsy) servant's worth. (Not before time, many would say.) Bradley James impresses as Arthur strives to be the king Camelot deserves, he winning over those who previously held him in contempt. (Lindsay Duncan and Ben Daniels are excellent as two of those converted.) How splendid Gaius (Richard Wilson) is still around, his scenes with Merlin a particular pleasure. One to hiss is Arthur's seemingly devoted uncle (Nathaniel Parker) - he in fact plotting much villainy. (The actor features prominently in out-takes.)

Bonuses include commentaries, deleted scenes and an interesting feature on the making of this season.

The series' continued success owes everything to the converging of talents - crackling scripts, so ingeniously plotted; a fine cast doing them full justice; breathtaking special effects; music that even further enhances. Full marks also to whoever had that brainwave of making Merlin and Arthur the same age!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good series, dissapointed with the end 5 Jan 2012
By KG
Format:DVD
Series 4 of Merlin is darker than the past series and I love it for that. Morgana's powers become greater and her allies increase in numbers. Arthur and Gwen experiece some hardship in their relationship. Merlin more regularly takes on his old alias Dragoon. The series as a whole is very good and the episodes are gripping.
Only three things I wasn't impressed with this series (WARNING-SPOILERS):

1) The finale. Morgana attempts to take over Camelot with her army. This is mostly very similar to the series three finale, with one big difference: the witch doesn't really get to fight. Unlike in the series three finale when Morgause takes on Arthur, Morgana simply has her powers bound by Merlin and runs. I couldn't help but be very dissapointed at that... it just seemed a bit too easy.

2) Merlin has a magical move where he throws the enemy off their feet and knocks them out. This is starting to get old and makes for a few very anticlimactic endings.

3) A lot in Merlin isn't accurate to the legend and usually I don't mind that... but I didn't like that Merlin had to magically cast the sword out of the stone for Arthur. In the legend, the one true king is the only one able to lift the sword from the stone, while in Merlin he simply uses this story as a way to build up Arthur's confidence by fooling Arthur. As I said, I'm usually not bothered by how close to the legend Merlin is, but I strongly felt they should have kept that VERY significant scene the way the legend told it.

However, overall this series deleivers another great load of enchanting episodes and magical adventures.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tomatoes in the 5th century? 19 Mar 2013
By Sundew
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
An excellent family programme full of humour and silliness. I occasionally get surprised by how readily available tomatoes are in Arthurian England some 900 years before Colombus reached America, but I don't watch it for the historical accuracy :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic boxset 24 Aug 2012
By Amy
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is such a wonderful series. Full of magic (obviously), love, danger and lots of humour. The relationship between Merlin and Arthur is probably the best thing about the series. Colin and Bradley have brilliant comic timing.

I am more than happy with my purchase for Merlin - Complete BBC Series 4 (DVD). The item arrived in excellent condition plus, I found no faults with any of the DVDs. One thing I will say however is that the bonus feature DVD was missing. This wasn't an essential for me though and I can't say it's occurred with any of my other purchases with amazon. On the whole, I am happy with this item.
