MERLIN returns to the BBC, taking over the slot vacated by the DOCTOR WHO on October 1st.
All the favourite characters return and the series opens with a two-parter following on from the tumultuous events of the last series.
Here is what the BBC press office have to say on the matter of the wizards' return:
"Merlin faces his toughest challenge yet when Morgana's blinkered determination threatens not only Arthur's future, but also the very balance of the world. With her magic stronger than ever, the sorceress summons the mighty Callieach to tear open the veil between the worlds.
Hellish creatures pour forth, killing all who succumb to their touch. With Uther a shadow of his former self, it falls to Arthur and his loyal knights, including Lancelot, to protect the kingdom.
But it will take more than just swords to vanquish their enemy and Merlin is shocked to the core when he discovers the only way to restore the equilibrium requires a sacrifice of unimaginable proportions... "
