Merlin has been cancelled, just when it was getting really good

Merlin as we know it will not be returning to our Saturday teatime screens, and I for one am quite upset

After five years, Merlin is about to bite the dust. Despite hopes that the series would be renewed for a sixth year, it has been announced that the show will wrap up with a two-part story at Christmas. There may be films or spinoffs after that, which could either continue the story or reboot it completely, but that's beside the point.

Wild Nothing – Nocturne Review

25 August 2012 7:27 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

I didn’t go to Reading, or Leeds, this year. I haven’t woken this morning in a field. No, I’ve woken this morning surrounded by empty cans wearing pyjama bottoms and a Converge T Shirt. Most painful of all about my not having gone to Reading, or Leeds, most heartachingly painful of all, is that I didn’t see The Cure play a majestic three hour set.

Watching them from the comfort of my bed, attired in the aforementioned, on BBC iPlayer is not the same. Hangover breakfast of champions or not; gammon steak and scrambled egg (I like protein) splashed with mustard and red sauce. Chased of course with a coffee and a cigarette.

However, by way of compensation I have been gifted with something this week. That something is Wild Nothing’s sophomore effort Nocturne. How this is compensation will be made clear soon. »
