A Herald of the New Age

Series 4 - Episode 10 A Herald of the New Age



Where on earth is the Great Dragon? Are John Hurt’s voiceover fees prohibitive? Is the effects garage juggling too many bookings? I think we should be told. Whatever the reason, the wisdom- and fire-dispensing beastie has been sorely missed in recent weeks. And what about the cute baby dragon, Aithusa? It’s as if they’ve both just vanished in an enormous puff of noxious smoke.

Undeterred by such concerns, the knights of Camelot find a sinister shrine deep in the forest. Merlin believes some things are better left alone, but Sir Elyan (Adetomiwa Edun) is in gung-ho mood. The words “Pandora’s” and “box” spring to mind.


The knights discover an eerie shrine deep in the forest, which Merlin tells them is best left undisturbed. But the warlock's warnings go unheeded by Sir Elyan, whose careless actions spark a chain of events more terrifying than anyone could possibly have imagined. Sword-and-sorcery drama, starring Colin Morgan, Bradley James and Adetomiwa Edun.
