    Do we know if the current rewatch on BBC3 is just going to be series 1, or will they over time re-show all the episodes?

    Robin Hood, or Legend of the Seeker. Or maybe Doctor Who.


    It depends what similarities you're looking for. Fantasy, historical setting or something with the same format.


    Robin Hood is another BBC family show, it's not really a fantasy but it has other things in common with Merlin. It's set in the middle ages.


    Legend of the Seeker is a fantasy show, more suitable for teens and up rather than children. It's set in another world but the setting is somewhat like our past (the style of it). It's more like Xena than Merlin, with some of the same actors/writers etc.


    Doctor Who has a similar format (also a BBC family show like Merlin was) with some 'monster of the week' singular episodes with longer running stories too. It's a scifi rather than a fantasy, though the only thing holding up the science is technobabble so it could be classified as a fantasy.

    Hi, long time lurker here!
    I remember seeing something ages ago about there being another Arthur/Gwen deletedscene from 5x03 that isn't with all the other deleted scenes, just wondering if anyone knows where I could find it?


    Thanks

    Hello there

    As per my post #1308 at the series 5 spoilers thread I list below the deleted scenes (that I know of) in 5x03. I can provide with a more detailed information on either of them in case any is the one that you are looking for:

    -When Merlin and Arthur reach the top of a pass that overlooks Camelot, Arthur tells Merlin how time isn’t making it any easier and how much he misses his father. -Valdis had in her neck a tattoo depicting the Tree of Life that could be seen in Morgause’s bloodguard tunics, blood stained clothes and a ghastly wound on her back (making clear she hasn’t got much life left in her).
    -Merlin rides with Valdis (the sorceress) in his horse but she can barely stay put in the saddle.
    -Merlin is tending to Valdis’ back wound. When Arthur is not close he tries to heal her with magic.
    -Valdis warns Arthur to never look back when the veil is closing if he decides to use the horn.
    -When Vadies dies Arthur is lost in thought, staring at the horn.
    -During the banquet, Percival raises his goblet and says a toss to the king. All join in. Arthur tells Gwen that he is tired from the hunting and getting an early night but her face acknowledges that she knows what really troubles him. She asks him if he wants some time alone and he says that he does, is grateful for the offer and tells her to enjoy the feast. Merlin watches Arthur leave the room with some concern.
    -In the scene where Arthur is hiding the horn under the bowl Merlin asks Arthur if he has got him a present before realizing it’s an stupid question. When Merlin goes for the bowl Arthur whacks him with the spoon.
    -Gwen runs into Merlin when he is getting Arthur’s horse ready. She recognizes the saddle and Merlin blurts out that they are going hunting. Gwen wishes to join but Merlin says that it’s going to rain. Gwen corners him into almost admitting that it's Arthur who doesn’t want her joining them. She is hurt but Merlin says that it’s because Arthur cares for her safety. It doesn’t make things better and Gwen walks into the castle saddened.
    -On their way to the stones Merlin tells Arthur to spend some time with Gwen when they are back, maybe pick some flowers for her too.
    -Merlin reminds Arthur that he has always considered dangerous meddling with magic. Arthur replies that that’s why no one must know about what he is to do.
    -Merlin reminds Arthur about Valdis’ warning not to look back as the veil closes.
    -Arthur and Merlin are spending the night around a campfire. Merlin is awaken by a funny feeling.
    -When they are going up the castle stairs Arthur reminds Merlin not to tell anyone about where they’ve been. Merlin gives Arthur a bunch of flowers that he was hiding behind his back just as Gwaine pops in. Arthur and Merlin look uncomfortable and say at the same time that they are for Gwen as Gwaine smiles at the awkward pair.
    -Gwen is staring out of the window, Arthur places the flowers in front of her face, she turns around to a smiling Arthur. He says the flowers are a token of his affection. She puts them in a vase, asks about the hunting. Arthur hesitates and says it wan’t fruitful. Gwen tells him that she understands that here and there he needs time for himself and that if he doesn’t Gwen to accompany him, she’d rather hear it from his lips and not Merlin’s. Arthur says that he only wanted to get her some flowers and for it to be a surprise. Gwen isn’t convinced, and asks if there’s anything that he isn’t telling her. Arthur denies it. Gwen remains unconvinced but lets it drop. The walk together to a round table meeting, the vase flies across the room and smashes against the wall.
    -Before Leon’s boring account at the round table, Elyan has one of his own as well.
    -During Leon’s account the candelabra sways gently to a breeze in the room. Merlin is the only one to notice and seems to wonder about it.
    -After the meeting, Gwen finds the broken vase and the flowers on the floor. She starts to tidy up and the candles flicker. Some antlers are about to fall on her when Arthur enters. Arthur asks what happened but Gwen can’t tell. Arthur says that it was probably Merlin being clumsy and jokes about sending him back for more flowers. Gwen tells him not to be mean and both smile.
    -Arthur and Gwen are having dinner and the door flies open, but it’s Merlin this time. He needs to talk to Arthur urgently. Gwen takes the hint and leaves them alone knowing that something is going on. Arthur thinks that it is about the vase but Merlin says that he had nothing to do with it and that he believes that Uther is behind it. Arthur doesn’t want to believe it.
    -Uther knocks Arthur out with a fying chair instead of a shield.
    -Arthur and Gwen are sitting in bed, he confesses it all to her. Gwen says that most people would have done the same and wishes he would have told her about it. Arthur promises not to keep anything from her again. Then he points to a vase and tells her that he’s got her flowers. She gives him a look and rephrases his words into having sent Merlin to pick them. Arthur says that’s what he meant. Both smile.

    Unfortunately that particular deleted scene wasn't part of the Series 5 DVD extras. If it was filmed it was not one of their choices for the Series 5 Deleted scenes that were released.
