The series premiere of Merlin on September 20, 2008 set us off on a magical five-year journey - one with mythical monsters, wicked warlocks and excessive amounts of bromantic banter.
Millions tuned in each Saturday night for the show's blend of fun, fantasy and friendship - because Merlin and Arthur (Bradley James) were definitely just friends, Ok? - but what's happened to Camelot's finest since that epic final episode?
The aged Emrys might still be waiting for King Arthur to revive, but Merlin lead Colin Morgan hasn't lain dormant these past few years. He appeared opposite fellow Irish legend Gabriel Byrne in BBC One's moody detective drama Quirke in 2014, was seduced by Gillian Anderson as mercurial copper Tom Anderson in The Fall and played cyborg Leo in Channel 4's smash hit Humans.
Indeed, die-hard fans will be happy to hear that a good deal remains unchanged - from the off, Peter Dyneley's stirring countdown-to-launch and the subsequent swell of that classic theme tune deliver a rush of glorious nostalgia.
But it's also more than a mere nostalgia trip, with enough changes put into place to ensure that the show works as colourful, engaging fodder for the 6-11 year-olds of today.
As befits a modern series, and one intended primarily for children, the pace is utterly relentless throughout - a lack of incident is certainly not a problem that Thunderbirds Are Go! suffers from.
Produced using a blend of CGI animation and live-action model sets, the returning Thunderbirds Are Go! features the vocal talents of Rosamund Pike, Angel Coulby and Kayvan Novak, with David Graham also reprising his original role of Parker.

Over the years, there have been several - mostly unsuccessful - attempts to bring back Thunderbirds.
However, where others failed, Thunderbirds Are Go! looks set to succeed.
Debuting 50 years after the original series first aired, Digital Spy sat down with the cast to talk comparisons to 24, why the show is "the opposite of naff" - and why fans of the original will be happy to see this incarnation of International Rescue back at work.
Lady Penelope - Rosamund Pike
"It was an easy 'yes' as soon as ITV asked me to voice Lady Penelope. It was a huge compliment and I knew it would be a very exciting adventure.
"Exploring the scenes with David Graham has been an absolute delight. The scripts are very modern, very fresh and very funny. I love working with him, and the bond between Parker and Penelope and the humour that is batted between them is really fun to play.
ITV's revamp of the classic '60s show will launch this Saturday (April 4) at 5pm with a special double episode.
A 15ft model of underwater rescue vehicle Thunderbird 4 departed from East London, passing iconic landmarks including Tower Bridge and the Houses of Parliament.
A team of TV prop builders took more than six weeks to design, construct and paint the model, which was made from fibre-glass.
In both the original and revamped Thunderbirds, Thunderbird 4 is piloted by aquanaut Gordon Tracy, and is often delivered to the danger zone by Thunderbird 2.
Thunderbirds Are Go! - produced using a blend of CGI animation and live-action model sets - features the vocal talents of Rosamund Pike, Angel Coulby and Kayvan Novak, with David Graham also reprising his original role of Parker.
A pivotal character in the original '60s series, Jeff was the father of the Tracy brothers and head of International Rescue, but Hoegee recently confirmed in a Reddit Ama that he will not appear in ITV's new reboot.
Speaking at a press screening for Thunderbirds Are Go! last night (March 31), Hoegee clarified the decision, suggesting that Jeff's absence allows the show's younger characters to "shine".
"Jeff Tracy is not a character that can be sidelined or minimised in any way shape or form," he explained. "He is a huge presence - in the world of Thunderbirds and on the screen - [and] the show we're making right now couldn't be about Jeff Tracy - it has to be about the boys, and Kayo (Angel Coulby).
"Our feeling was… what would be a way

Ridge said that while it would appeal to a modern audience, many of the original elements would be retained.
He said: "We had no intention of messing with what already worked.
"It's a classic for a reason - it's a show that has a lot of cultural relevance for a lot of people, and so the decisions and changes we have made were not entered into lightly.
"Equally though, the series needs to appeal to a new modern audience, so whilst the iconic characters… music and story elements are largely retained, they are realised with production values that deliver an even greater dynamic and emotional experience for today's audience."
Ridge also spoke about some of the new vehicles that would appear on the show, before saying that the characters' heroism held the key to its appeal.
