The last ever episode of Merlin will air this Sunday on TEN, which co-creators and executive producers Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy have dubbed “a natural climax …. bringing an end to the battle for Camelot.”
This aired in the UK on the weekend so it’s great to see that TEN has been fast-tracking this through summer.
The show been a savvy mix of adventure, romance and fantasy with a cast clearly having a rollicking time on the small screen.
I interviewed Johnny Capps back in 2009 when he attributed its success to the popularity of Doctor Who, Torchwood, and Primeval. You can read that one here.
As a fierce battle rages on Camlann’s mighty plain, just as the prophecies foresaw, Merlin must find the strength to overcome his greatest challenge yet as he seeks a way to protect Camelot. As he fights to save the kingdom from the attacking hordes and keep Arthur safe from harm, the young wizard finally comes face to face with his destiny.
Will Merlin save all that he holds dear: the man he made a King, the Camelot they fought to build and the brotherhood they shared?
6:30pm Sunday on TEN.
