In an article about Russell Davis, the Telegraph mentions that the BBC are working on a new series, called Merlin, for the 7pm Saturday evening time slot (it will apparently be broadcast next year).

There's not much more than that to go on at present, but you can read the full interview here: Russell Davis Interview (the Merlin comments are on page 3 of the interview).

Let's hope they do a better job of it than they did with Robin Hood!

Depends who they get to play Merlin, to be honest. Track record on this hasn't been great with Sam Neill and Rik Mayall being two very odd choices. Neither were great, really.

I agree. Shitness will inevitably ensue.

He bums Sir Galahad. I always wondered about him.

I hope everyone in Camelot is at least bi-curious.

Merlin will be a cocky northerner with a McFly haircut and no arse. The direction will be slovenly, the production values as low as Merlin's jeans, the writing unrealistic and clunky, and the effects even less so. The forum will love it.

I didn't think the original series with Sam Neill was that bad (the Return of Merlin that followed it was pretty dire though . . .).

I fear this will be the case exactly.

You also forgot that Guinevere will be some fresh out of LAMBDA girly who speaks in a Sloaney-slumming way and the 'modern' soundtrack full of beeps and twiddles and geeee-tar.

It already sounds great to me. I look forward to that gimp off About a Boy and Skins being cast in the title role.

The series looked great, I'll give you that. Neill has all the charisma of a wet flannel though, and let's face it, Merlin needs to be charismatic.

No chance of a complete retelling of Malory's Morte d'Arthur entirely in Middle English then?

Shame, because reading that at university was a hoot and a half.
