Merlin: The Diamond Of The Day Part 1 Review

23 December 2012 1:34 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Well, how about that. For the past seven days, myself and countless other fans were left wondering just how the writing team on Merlin could ever possibly match the turn of Mordred in The Drawing Of The Dark. How could any writer hope to accomplish such a feat in the midst of such worthy competition? By bringing us a penultimate episode that truly delivers on so many promises of the show, that’s how. It’s hard to think of anything more we could have asked of The Diamond Of The Day Part 1, and for those whispering the words “magic reveal” in my ears, the Next Time trailer should be evidence enough that the big shocks do not end here. Writing this review becomes simple in many ways, then, because speaking to the praises of this week’s adventure is incredibly easy- what’s difficult is just knowing when to stop! »

Merlin series 5 episode 12 review: The Diamond Of The Day (Part 1)

22 December 2012 12:12 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Dave Adamson Dec 22, 2012

Merlin's penultimate episode is a slow-burner featuring hugely impressive performances and action...

This review contains spoilers.

5.12 Diamond of the Day (Part 1)

As ever, let's begin with a recap of the episode's events:

Morgana has a new weapon in her arsenal, a creature capable of draining the magic from people. She sees nothing wrong in using this upon her former ally, Ari, despite Mordred voicing his reservations. She’s unstoppable, though, as she knows that without his magic, Merlin is powerless and that Camelot will surely fall if Arthur doesn’t have a powerful wizard - albeit unknowingly - in his midst.

Meanwhile, Arthur and Merlin are playing a dice game that the servant appears to be winning with the aid of magic. There's humour and merriment, with Merlin showing a wicked streak, winning plenty of money and making his master look a tad foolish, before retiring to his chambers, »

10 Christmas TV shows to circle in the Radio Times

20 December 2012 1:39 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Louisa Mellor Dec 20, 2012

We’ve put a spotlight on some of the UK Christmas telly specials you won’t want to miss this festive season…

You know that pub conversation we’ve all had, the one about what you’d show an alien race on the brink of wiping out planet Earth to convince them we are essentially a well-meaning, productive, and often beautiful species that deserves to live? No contest: a Christmas issue of the Radio Times.

In 1969, an astronaut walked on the moon and someone thought up the Christmas Radio Times, both of them landmarks of brilliant stuff achieved by humans. They must have been thinner then - not astronauts, copies of the Radio Times - back when there were fewer TV channels than there are now Shrek films.

Between the covers of that hefty double edition sits the industry and imagination of generations. It »

Merlin: The Drawing Of The Dark Review

17 December 2012 12:20 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

If ever we needed proof that the final battle of Camlann is well and truly on its way to the small screen in the remaining fortnight of Merlin’s final season of broadcasting, then The Drawing Of The Dark was most certainly it. For weeks now, we’ve had teasers and hints aplenty at the terrible war that will ensue across the kingdom in the two-part finale The Diamond Of The Day, and indeed the corruptible Mordred’s role within it. It’s now, though, that we see the rumours and rumblings reach their incredible satisfying crescendo.

The Drawing Of The Dark mirrors the previous Season Five highlight The Disir not only in its increased focus on the Mordred arc, but additionally in its posing of an intense moral dilemma for the regular cast to deal with. Admittedly, Angel Coulby’s Gwen was relegated to dinner »

Grab Your Calendars: Syfy Announces Winter Schedule

4 December 2012 4:00 PM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

It’s true; no matter what certain networks may claim about their “winter finales,” winter doesn’t actually start until December 21, and isn’t over until March 20. Syfy, at least, understands this, and has announced their appropriately-titled winter schedule accordingly.

Happily this means that, starting on Monday, January 14, 2013, we will have some great television to get us through the cold months, including the return of Being Human and Lost Girl, and the premiere of Continuum, and later in the week, the return of Ghost Hunters and Face Off.

Here’s the schedule of premieres, along with series synopses:

Syfy’S 2013 Winter Programming Highlighted By Series Premieres Of Ghost Mine, Robot Combat League, Stranded And Continuum Season Returns Of Hits Being Human, Face Off, Total Blackout, Ghost Hunters, Lost Girl, Haunted Collector And Final Season Of Merlin

New York – December 4, 2012 – Syfy will kick off the New Year with a robust winter »

TV Review: Merlin – With All My Heart

2 December 2012 11:44 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Well, it had to happen sometime: finally, we’ve reached the culmination of the over-elongated ‘Puppet Queen’ arc which has helped Merlin tread water with solid-if-inconsistent offerings these past three weeks. With All My Heart truly feels as if it marks the beginning of the end for the show given what we know of its broadcast future, but as with Arthur’s Bane Part 2, it’s an arc-heavy episode that suffers from the weight of its various plot elements. As Merlin adventures go, it’s still a decent episode, but we’ve certainly seen far better work this season.

The first twist in the tale came with the revelation that Arthur had listened to Merlin’s suspicions of Gwen and that they were thus spying on the influenced Queen. Sure enough, Angel Coulby’s feisty monarch was seen plotting with Morgana once again, only for our »

Merlin: The Hollow Queen Review

28 November 2012 11:39 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

There’s a certain strange tinge of melancholy starting to surround the final episodes of Merlin’s fifth run, what with our new foreknowledge of the show’s impending demise. It’s a good job, then, that with the eighth instalment of Season Five- The Hollow Queen- the writers prove once again they’re not letting the downbeat future prospects get them down, with another strong offering at the centre of the three-part arc of Gwen’s possession by Morgana. Sure, there are faults here and there this time around, but this week’s romp is still leaps and bounds ahead of the earlier mediocre adventures of this series.

Once again, Arthur finds himself at the hands of a cunning plot by the ever-reliable witch who’s plagued him for three entire seasons now, this time manifesting itself in Gwen’s attempts to have the Sarrum murder her betrothed. »

Merlin Ends With Fifth Season

27 November 2012 3:32 PM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

I see an end to magic in your future, especially if you are a fan of Merlin. The BBC series has announced that it’s fifth season will also be it’s last. There is; however, a silver lining. Are you game for some spin-offs?

BBC One will say good-bye to the Arthurian legend-rich series, Merlin, which stars Colin Morgan, Bradley James and Katie McGrath, this Christmas. Don’t take the news as anti-climactic, though. The show’s final notes involve an epic fight for Camelot.

Behind the scenes, this ending is actually a new beginning. According to THR, co-creators and executive producers Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy will use the opportunity to depart Elisabeth Murdoch’s Shine TV and set up their own outfit.

Capps and Murphy said, “We always felt the story of the legend was best told across five series, leading to a spectacular finale that draws »

Fans of the hit BBC One Fantasy Drama Merlin will be both joyful and sad to learn that the current series of the show will be its last.  Joyful because the show is getting a proper ending and not being cancelled, sad because it’s the last we’ll see of  the excellent saga of young Merlin.  The show will end at Christmas with a special two-part finale.

‘Merlin’ To End After 5 Seasons; Spinoffs Being Explored

26 November 2012 2:51 AM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Merlin will cast its final spell on BBC One this Christmas. The fantasy-adventure show that’s loosely based on Arthurian legend airs on Syfy in the U.S. and will end after five seasons. Co-creators and exec producers Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy say the series is bowing out at its natural climax, with the finale bringing an end to the battle for Camelot. Capps and Murphy have also announced they are leaving Shine TV, producer of the show, at the end of the year to start their own production company. Shine and FremantleMedia Enterprises, which handles the show internationally, are in the early stages of developing potential Merlin spinoffs using the universe created in the series. Any future shows would be produced by Shine’s Kudos in partnership with Fme. Merlin debuted in 2008 and stars Colin Morgan, Bradley James, Katie McGrath, Angel Coulby, Richard Wilson and the voice of John Hurt. »

Merlin: A Lesson In Vengeance Review

18 November 2012 3:01 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Well, colour me surprised once again. Far from letting the quality of its episode roster dip with a new instalment that clearly has ‘filler’ written all over it, the writers of Merlin have brought us another solid adventure in A Lesson In Vengeance. There are one or two gripes that hold it back from being a quintessential instalment, but all the same the positives far outweigh the negatives this week; something I’m glad to say given the opposite being true of some of the earlier episodes this season.

Leading on from the events of The Dark Tower, we head back to Camelot this week to discover the ramifications of Morgana’s magical influence over Queen Gwen. It turns out the monarch has now been turned fully against her husband, attempting to murder her betrothed at any possible moment. Merlin rightly notices the change of heart »

Merlin: The Dark Tower Review

12 November 2012 11:58 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

For all its faults, the fifth season of Merlin has so far been full of surprises. From prophecies of impending doom for the kingdom of Camelot to the return of the ambiguous Mordred, it’s been pretty challenging to keep a tap on what’s true and what’s going to change this year, though that’s working more in the show’s favour this week. The Dark Tower remains another strong offering that almost makes it up for the lows of Resurrection and Another’s Sorrow.

First up, let’s get the obvious talking point out into the open- two game-changing twists came late in the day that are sure to shape the second half of the season. Elyan’s death was slightly foreshadowed by star Adeotimiwa Edun announcing his departure from the show on Twitter recently, yet it still came as enough as a »

Merlin: The Death Song Of Uther Pendragon Review

21 October 2012 12:37 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Merlin has got off to a solid if unspectacular start this season with Arthur’s Bane, but I couldn’t help but having been left wanting more from the opening two-parter. It fell to Episode 3, then, to lay down the gauntlet and up the stakes in terms of the fifth series’ quality, but did The Death Song Of Uther Pendragon make the cut in this respect, besting its opposition to become one of the show’s greatst hits yet? The answer, sadly, once again is not quite.

Undoubtedly, the draw of Anthony Head’s return to the cast of Merlin for one week only was at the core of the marketing team’s promo campaign for this week’s adventure, and rightly so. For all the theatricality with which Head was often forced to perform his regular role in the opening three seasons, Uther Pendragon was »

Merlin: Arthur’s Bane Part 2 Review

14 October 2012 2:27 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Heading into the conclusion of a two-parter is no easy job for a writer on a British televised drama- you need only look at the likes of Doctor Who, Wild At Heart and countless other recent TV seasons for evidence of that. Merlin’s faring on double-barrelled episodes has been hit-and-miss at best in series gone by, and try as he might, Julian Jones still can’t quite seem to get the handle on how to balance action, emotion and arcs in this week’s second instalment of Series Five. Arthur’s Bane Part 2 most certainly has its merits, yet it’s definitely a step down from last week’s cracking opener.

Not keen to shy away from one of the obvious main arcs for the series narrative, Jones places an intense focus on the character of Mordred this week, presenting him in a number of »
