THE AD­VEN­TURES OF MER­LIN: SE­RIES 5

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

This fifth se­ries is tinged with sad­ness as it was the last one made, but at least it was a planned rather than a sur­prise ax­ing and the writ­ers were able to neatly – but not pre­dictably – tie up the half a cen­tury jour­ney of Mer­lin and the young prince Arthur. Mer­lin was the first UK drama to get a prime­time spot in the US af­ter TheAvengers three decades be­fore, but had dwin­dled to a “cult’’ fol­low­ing by its fi­nal year. While the last se­ries didn’t strictly ad­here to the Camelot le­gend, it is sto­ry­telling with great en­thu­si­asm. Fans won’t be dis­ap­pointed. ★★★ Ex­tras: The mak­ing of: cast and crew au­dio com­men­taries; out­takes; deleted scenes; fan videos. ★★★
