Just gets better and better, 29 Nov 2011
I'm always worried before a new series starts that it wont be as good as the last. Merlin never disappoints. It just gets better and better. Morgana is back and she will do anything to get the throne of Camelot. A new regular character is Agravaine, Arthur's uncle who isn't as benevolent as he seems. Our favourite regulars are back, great to see all the knights, some funny moments with them, in fact there are lots of laughs. Old Merlin returns and Colin Morgan is amazing. Series 4 looks great too. Some pretty impressive locations. And if you know anything about the Arthurian legends there are those moments where you go 'Oooooooo!'
For me, Merlin is superior to Doctor Who which has disappointed me in the last series. The writers always get it right, even if they deviate from the original legends. The storylines keep us gripped and are very teasing. What we loved about the characters in the first series is still there in the fourth.
I love this show and would highly recommend it. It's British family TV at its best. And as for wizards, Harry Potter eat your heart out!
