Review

Princess Mithian (Janet Montgomery), once engaged to Arthur, turns up at Camelot pleading for help in rescuing her father, King Rodor (James Fox, the latest feather in the series’ casting cap). This pits Arthur against his gnarled foe King Odin (Fintan McKeown). Odin, you may remember, was behind the death of Arthur’s father Uther, after Arthur had killed Odin’s son in a duel. Where do they go from here?

Merlin is a little less sure of itself this week in a largely surprise-free story of spiralling revenge. But there are pleasing scenes between court physician Gaius and Merlin, and also Merlin and Arthur, the latter showing just how far our young heroes have come.

Summary

Morgana makes a sinister pact with Nemeth and King Odin, using Princess Mithian as bait to lure Arthur to his death - a deception so powerful that the whole of Camelot, even Merlin, is taken in. Can the young warlock see through the lies before it is too late? Fantasy adventure, starring Colin Morgan, Bradley James, Katie McGrath and Janet Montgomery.
