Major new BBC Series - 'Merlin'

A major new series - Merlin - started last night on BBC1. Because we had friends with us, we watched it on Sunday.

We enjoyed the first episode very much - Far better than BBC's 'Robin Hood'. A good story-line and good special effects (by 'The Mill' - who also do them for Doctor Who). The acting was great all-round, from Anthony Head's King Uther Pengragon; Richard Wilson's Gaius; Eve Myles's Old Woman; John Hurt's voice of the The Dragon; Katie McGrath's Morgana; and of course Colin Morgan as Merlin.


Can't wait for Episode 2 next week!

Digital Spy reported ratings of
6.6 million - not bad!!
