Another fine new series from the Beeb, taking the Dr.Who/Robin Hood slot. Drawing on our tales of myth and folklore, Merlin looks very promising, I thoroughly enjoyed the first episode. With a dragon at its heart, the tale has been twisted away from the usual telling, has a stellar cast including Richard Wilson and Anthony Head, and already the characters and premise have drawn me in.

I'm just glad I'd written my take on the story before I saw this! (Arthur's Destiny on 30th June and on The Daily Scatter 'Fights on the Pound Table' - I'd be conflicted as to which variant to use!
