Merlin casts a new spell
THIS standout episode of the smash hit BBC TV series Merlin is a feast in more ways than one.
The palace is buzzing with a grand banquet planned for Prince Arthur’s ( Bradley James) birthday but, as always, there’s no shortage of villains wanting to spoil the party – assassins lurk among those carousing at Camelot.
The fallout leaves Camelot devastated and is a gamechanger for the show as the hero Merlin ( played by Colin Morgan) weighs up how far he’ll go to put things right.
Suspend belief and lap up the mix of drama and comic banter.
