Storyline

Young Merlin is a teenager, discovering and then learning to master his magical gift. Magister Gaius, King Uther Pendragon's learned court physician to whom he's assigned as humble page, teaches him medicine, coaches his magical self-study, and warns him of Uther's strong aversion to magic. Merlin becomes squire to the noble but imprudent crown prince, Arthur, whose fate is linked with Merlin. Written by KGF Vissers

fun, thrills and all round family entertainment
8 November 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Folloing on in the BBC's rich vein of mythical/historical adventures, in Merlin we have another entertaining, fast paced, family thriller sure to please countless people of all ages and backgrounds. Merlin follows a simple but effective structure often found in its genre, with Merlin as the unsung hero often struggling to keep his magical talents and work secret, Arthur the kings' son who often appears unfriendly and arrogant but shines and shifts when called to make tough decisions, and a slightly evil king whos' path of unfortunate events has ultimately led to his personality and biased hatred of magic. Add to the mix some romantic plot lines that never quite seem to materialize and the constant fret of fiends and enemies to the kingdom, occasionally intertwined with some harsh prophecy and the result is a 5 star exciting, fun adventure.
