A Servant of Two Masters

Series 4 - Episode 6 A Servant of Two Masters



Merlin turns into The Hex Factor tonight when the sorcerer falls under Morgana’s deadly spell. Using ancient magic, and no doubt one of those guttural invocations so beloved of the series, she turns him into her superweapon against the smiling world of Camelot. Will an oblivious king notice anything untoward in Merlin’s behaviour? Arthur passed off his serf’s recent “woodworm-search” with a shrug,so the signs aren’t good.

Whether or not it’s benefiting from the Strictly effect, the series has retained robust viewing figures, and deservedly so, but the story could do with another galvanising kick in the arc.


Morgana uses ancient magic to bend Merlin to her will, turning him into a deadly assassin on a mission to kill the king. But with Arthur oblivious to the danger, his only hope rests with someone else noticing his manservant's strange behaviour before he commits the evil deed. Colin Morgan, Bradley James and Katie McGrath star.
