First collection of episodes from the fifth series of the BBC fantasy drama set in the mythical city of Camelot. The show follows the relationship between the young King Arthur (Bradley James) and Merlin (Colin Morgan), the wise sorcerer who guides him to power and beyond. In this series, a number of unexplained disappearances in a remote northern kingdom compel Arthur and his knights to investigate. But are they journeying towards danger?

The series continues and enters a more mature level of drama...The acting is amazing--Colin Morgan and Bradley James shine in this series--they deserve to win a BAFTA for this! The story is closer to the legend than ever before but there are many unexpected twists throughout...It was great to see Angel Coulby with an intersting story line this year. This was just part one of two parts of Merlin's final series...can't wait to see volume 2 and the final installment. I only wish they had continued with this show into a 6th and 7th series. I will miss it terribly when it is gone, but at least I will be able to re-watch it on DVD.

Delighted to finally complete my collection of Merlin DVD's that I received quickly and were as described from a seller that I can recommend. I am looking forward to watching them all again, but if I can put the family through (including my Hubby!) the ending again I really do not know. We all cries buckets the first time round. As a person who has a great interest in the Arthurian saga this series was a delight to see, combining stories from old to medieval tales and I thought it was very well done and the acting just got better and better through out. Utterly devastated when it ended. A huge well done to the BBC and all involved.

This is an episode-by-episode review.

Episode 1. Arthur's Bane - Part 1: 7/10
This starts of series 5 well, but it is not as strong as I was expecting it to be. It is clear from just the first few minuets in that the series has got a lot darker. It is set 3 years after the events of the finale to the fourth series. It has the return of Mordred and Queen Anis (two characters who have previously been in the show), it has a good cliffhanger than falls nicely into Part 2. However, I thought this episode was slow at times, and the character ''Sefa'' is yet another character who is a ''traitor'', this has happened too many times now, in series 3 it was Morgana and in series 4 it was Agravaine, it's getting old now. But this is still a good start to the series, and had a good ending that involved the return of Mordred, who has not been in the show since the second series.

Episode 2 Arthur's Bane - Part 2: 8/10
This episode did not fail to deliver. There is a relation to the cliffhanger at the end of series 4, that of cores involved the return of the white Dragon ''Aithusa''. There is also an scene that refers to events that took place in-between the previous series and this series. There is a scene where Katie McGrath is giving her very best performance and this scene also shows just how much Morgana's character has changed. The episode has a very unexpected event that has a big effect on the series. Then comes a chilling ending, however, the ending of this episode is actually quite disappointing as it is one that has just happened so many times before. But still, I did enjoyed this episode.

Episode 3.

*Please Note, this is purely a review of THE EPISODES on this DVD, which I will be updating weekly, and then again when I have the genuine article.

MERLIN has come to the darkest part of the legend now, I've noticed, and It's not so much a family show anymore. In my opinion, this is a brilliant thing, as I much prefer the darker episodes to the light-hearted ones in the first series.

ARTHUR'S BANE - PART ONE kicks off the series brilliantly, and it's clear from just the opening two minuets that this series has got a lot, lot darker. However, this does not stop the friendly banter between Merlin and Arthur: "Is there anything you're actually good at?" - "Putting up with you!?" Very nice to see Liam Cunningham as well, after seeing him in Outcast, which I personally thought was very good, but it didn't do too well. Gwen seems to be settling in to the role of Queen very nicely too, even if a bit harsh. The episode, even though I found it slow in parts, was great entertainment, and really made me excited for Part Two. (8/10)

ARTHUR'S BANE - PART TWO continued the story, and let me say, it really delivered. Aithusa, Mordred, Slow-mo sword fights, Morgana going absolutely stark-raving MENTAL and a weird blue thing, I thought it was already a treat, but it was really the last ten minuets that got my brain going "WOW!" I know the writers said Mordred in series 5 would be 'complicated', but who's side is he really on? All I can say is, if it's Morgana's, then Arthur's in deep $#!% (9/10)

THE DEATH SONG OF UTHER PENDRAGON was an episode I had been looking forward to ever since I found out that Anthony Head would be returning as a guest.

I liked a lot the 1st part of the 5th serie "Merlin" full of surprises and new developments. The good turns bad and the bad seems good. The characters are bobbing up and down in the waves of their desires, duties and destiny and we never know what will be the new trick of their fate...Their fates are the writers of the serie and they are very clever... I am Impatient to see the 2cd part.
In France, in university, I studied the old french langage with the roud table ' Knights. They are myths and legends that means they can come back in all times of history with the shapes, the behaviours and the adventures that we can appreciate in our own time. It is what did the BBC that, from my point of view, is the best in making series that enjoy kids and adults in a same time.
All along the series, I was always curious of what the writers do with the legend. I was often surprised and I liked that! For example, I could never have imagine Mordred like that! This charactere is a great "trouvaille", a great success. Bravo!
I dream of a spin-off for adults, epic and comic.....
