The epic fifth and final series of Merlin sees Camelot at the height of its golden age. With Queen Guinevere and the Knights of the Round Table at his side, Arthur has never felt stronger.

But even as Camelot flowers, the seeds of her destruction are being sown... As the forces of darkness gather, only Merlin stands between Arthur and a fate that has been written since the dawn of time...

Three years on from where Series Four ended, Morgana is more powerful than ever and is still hell bent on destroying Arthur and claiming the Throne of Camelot as her own. Old friends and new enemies threaten to switch sides as we see the return of Mordred (Alexander Vlahos), Princess Mithian (Janet Montgomery), Queen Annis (Lindsay Duncan) and even the deceased King Uther (Anthony Head).

With a stellar guest cast including John Shrapnel (Waking the Dead, Gladiator), Peter Guinness (Silent Witness, Sleepy Hollow) and the return of Gary Lewis (Billy Elliot, Gangs of New York), as well as superb action sequences and stunning CGI effects, the fifth series of MERLIN is the greatest ever.

*SPOILERS*

This being the final series of Merlin, expectations were high. As a lover of Merlin since it first began, I'm disappointed to say that it didn't quite reach those expectations.

There were some wonderful, stand out episodes, such as 'The Deathsong of Uther Pendragon,' 'The Dark Tower,' and, in particular, 'The Diamond of the Day, part 1.'

However, since the announcement that series 5 would be the last series, what we were all looking forward to was the magic reveal, and sadly, this didn't come until the very last episode. What we got in the meantime were many unecessary 'filler' episodes where the plot didn't move forward, which was very frustrating as we knew that we only had limited time left.

Part 1 of the finale is, hands down, the best episode of Merlin, ever, for me. It sets the stage for an outstanding last episode, which is a horrific let down. The ending is most clearly not what,(from the state of the show's Facebook page,)fans were looking for, and I wasn't too pleased either. For 5 seasons, we're told that Arthur and Merlin will create Albion together, but we're left not even knowing if magic is accepted in Camelot. Surely that was the whole point? And Arthur is meant to die as an old man, having ruled for years with Merlin at his side. However, whilst annoying, this is not what ruined the ending for me. The writers have never stuck to legend, so it's hardly fair to expect them to start now.

No, what ruined Merlin's finale was how rushed it was. It's almost as though they decided they weren't going to make a series 6 and then realised they had a lot of ends to tie up and not much time to do it in. Morgana's death, Mordred and Arthur's 'battle,' Gwaine's out of character stupid assasination attempt- all were rushed.

There has been much of interest and value in series 5 of Merlin and other reviewers have explored each episode in some detail. But because all good things must come to an end it is often the final episode of any series that defines everything that went before. No doubt some viewers, honed on plots where the hero lives happily ever, will find the final episode emotionally challenging. But a "happy ending" in the conventional sense would radically have departed from the traditional Arthurian legends. It would also have restricted Arthur to a mere mortal ruler, when in fact he achieved mythical status by transcending the limits of an earthly king and the equally limited boundaries of an earthly Camelot.

This vital magical feature was implicit in the final scene where we see Merlin in the present day strolling along a road next to the Isle of Avalon, illustrating that the greatest sorcerer of all time, along with King Arthur, is alive and well. Could he be on his way to meet Arthur with the intention of saving Albion from the perils of our present age? If so, then the story has ended not in loss and defeat, as some commentators are saying, but in a triumph far exceeding that which can be conceived of by mere mortals. Merlin has been a great series, and is highly recommended to anyone who loves not only "swords and sorcery", but stories with a meaning on more than one level.

Same story carried on from season 4. No real new change in the story line. howver must have if you colleting the whole set. Ending was totally out of place. Wonder if they made Series 6 what the story would be?

ARTHUR'S BANE - PART ONE: A strong opener with amazing visuals. Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones) is a great guest star and steals most of the scenes he is in. Gwen has come far in the three-year gap between Series Four and Five. She appears to be much stronger and confident in her role as Queen - at one point even proving that she can make tough decisions when Arthur is away from Camelot. The episode ends on a great cliffhanger which leads nicely into Part Two. (4/5)

ARTHUR'S BANE - PART TWO: This episode follows on from the previous and like episode one, does not disappoint. The visuals are just as good and in some parts better than the first and the fight scenes are great. This episode also sees the return of Aithusa (from Series Four) and also another character who plays a huge part in Arthur's fate... Morgana appears to be slightly psychotic and in one particular scene shows how much she despises Arthur. There is no going back for her character, who appears to be a cat with nine lives. The ending is a huge surprise and will get viewers excited for the rest of the series. (4/5)

THE DEATH SONG OF UTHER PENDRAGON: Whenever a TV series has a really strong opening story, the following episode sometimes seems to be a little bit of a letdown. Episode Three however proves that this never has to always be the case. Anthony Head (Uther Pendragon) obviously returns as a guest star and proves that just because his titular character is dead, doesn't mean he cannot be a threat. Arthur, being a very different king to his father, has brought more peace to Camelot and even allowed men who are not born noble to become knights. This would always have shocked Uther and viewers are able to see his disgust. Uther's words at times are truly harsh to the son he craved so much.
