    If this is indeed the last series I hope the magic reveal happens within the first 3-5 episodes so we can the fallout and resolution in proper time.

    it seems that September 29th is not the air date for the first episode after all?

    That was only a speculated airdate based on what happened last year (Merlin started immediately after the last episode of Dr. Who's half series, this year's half series of Dr. Who ends September 29th), the BBC only releases the broadcast dates of their shows 2 weeks before they are set to start. The official word should happen either later this week or next week. (And I think the BBC announcements for that are done on Thursdays.)

    Crew members twittering and hinting about series 5 being the last (or at least twittering messages that could be interpreted like that) have removed their previous posts and replaced them like so:

    ”Let me clarify.....i am moving on to another show, this would have been my last time in france” Source.

    ”Last ever visit for Me with the crew to the castle. I'm off travelling around the world for a year or two” Source.

    Lol at Cultbox writing an article based on one of those tweets (here). Wasn't Cultfix who also reported the (possible) Alvar hoax?

    Anyway, crew member also posted over at Cultbox to 'clarify' his twitters: "Sorry guys....but my tweet was about me, not the show....I am moving on to another show, because of work commitments it would have been MY last ever block in France. Andy" Source.

    The echos of that wolves cry must have been awesome in that castle. I'm expecting there to be an epic battle in there sometime as well.

    Bit weird though, right? I thought the wolves would only be part of the opening two parter (the ones with the snow).

    September 11th
    -Angel, Bradley, Colin, Eoin, Rupert, Tom and Colin could be seen.
    -Wolves cries could be heard all over the castle Source.
    -A big scene was filmed in the courtyard with director Justin Molotnikov. Horses, lots of extra knights, as well as Bradley, Angel, Rupert and Tom. It seemed the knights were riding out on a mission. Gwen seemed to be needing to tell Arthur something rather urgently, which implies her usual role of farewelling them. There was a nice bit at the end where Gwen and Arthur join hands, for which Justin filmed a close-up.
    -Gwen was wearing a blue cloak, a purple costume and purple gloves. She could be seen wearing that dress in June already.
    -Then they moved to the throne room where the Round Table is set. Colin joined them.
    -Rachel Knight, and a man who seemed to be the director were around for another courtyard scene. A double for Gaius rode into the courtyard at a cracking pace, where he was met by Gwaine.

    Sorry to disappoint, but we haven't heard any wolves, all we heard was a friend's cocker spaniel crying for our friend, he actually sounded like a wolf. Do you know the "Merlin dog"? It was him!

    Me to, but knowing Merlin it will happen in 5x11 and then in 5x12 they will rush through everyone's emotions of surprise, anger, disbelief and acceptance in 10 - 15 minutes

    Sept 12th:
    -Alex, Bradley, Angel, Colin, Katie, Richard, Rupert, Tom and Eoin were around.
    -Mordred filmed a scene in the courtyard. It included several knights or guards, with lit braziers and torches, and was based around the drawbridge and entrance to the castle. He was wearing a brown cloak, and appeared to have been travelling. He seemed to be sneaking around.
    -Another team was working in throne room, the scene apparently involved Gwen, Gaius and Gwaine.
    -There was also filming going on in the woods.
    -Gwaine filmed a scene in the Griffin Hall, apparently with Gaius.
    -A courtyard scene included a stand-in for Merlin riding out of Camelot.
    -A structure was built in the courtyard, for a hanging. A blonde woman who looked defiant and a brunette one who walked with a limp and looked innocent were forced up onto the scaffolding to be hung. These scenes were apparently being filmed for two different episodes.

    ”My friend is in Pierrefonds (...) she was talking to the props master, and some castle staff and they said it was going be really sad when they left this time cause they wouldn't be coming back And apparently the producer said that it all depends on the ratings, but they've always been high, haven't they?” Source.

    ”One guy of the Merlin-crew (I think a producer) said, that there has been absolutely NO decision about whether Merlin goes on or not.” Source.

    The blonde being hanged looks likeErin Richards to me (Eira). If so, I guess Gwen followed through with her threat to execute Eira(going off the script in Poppy Drayton's audition tapes).

    Sorry but seeing those lovely young women being hung is difficult to watch. I only hope there is good reason. I can't shake all the unfair times Uther did or was about to execute an innocent person. I hope the king and queen of Camelot are always fair and just as she said to him that time she spoke to his subconscious long ago.

    true that was really hilarious.


    I was reading some tweets here and there and it seems that at the end of the filming today everyone was waving and shaking hands etc... seems like a decision on Season 6 has been taken after all
