|Merlin returns to BBC One on Saturday 8th October. It's in the BBC handbook for their Autumn lineup. They have it as a preliminary date so could change but I also worked out that Doctor Who returns to BBC on 27 August for 6 episodes, (last episode on 1st Oct) So Merlin returning the week after works out right Source and Source.|
That's good news even though we have to wait a few weeks longer. I was worried that if Merlin aired at the same time as Dr Who then it might have been on a different day. Merlin is perfect for Saturday nights. So I have worked out that Merlin will run to the end of December which means episode 12 could be a funny Christmassy one or more like previous series building up to a dramatic series finale.
Two month countdown starts tomorrow!
