    Hahahahaha, best thing ever, hope they noticed it!



    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



    I dunno, they could just be saying good bye to the ppl who are leaving to work/travel besides I think their are still a bunch of negotiations going on and waiting to see what the ratings will be like : / It might be more of "Don't know if will see you next year cause we might end it here or start making a movie so see ya"

    That and I think if they had decided this was the last season they would have really hyped it up. But perhaps I'm just in denial lol

    Sept 13th report here and pics here thanks to merlinlocations.

    Sept 13th vids here and here thanks to drunkonlifeTTT.

    September 13th:

    September 13th:
    -Merlin, Arthur, Gwen and Sir Leon were around.
    -For the first scene of the day some fake flowers were dressing a hill directly opposite the chateau.
    -Merlin filmed a scene reacting to the hanging of one of the young women, it seemed that he was very sad to see the woman die.
    -Another scene in the courtyard which involved stand-ins for Merlin and Gwaine galloping out on horses (the director wanted as much speed and urgency from them as possible).
    -Another scene involved a crowd watching the hanging.
    -Gwen up on the balcony, witnessing an execution (different woman from the one Merlin witnessed earlier).
    -Then they filmed Arthur and Gwen's part in the other execution (the same that Merlin witnessed earlier but from their own point of view).
    -Another scene had Arthur, Gwen and Merlin riding in from a picnic to find Leon tending to some distressed villagers on the floor. Sir Leon comes to Arthur and shows him food on a table.

    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!



    Haha!


    Love Merlin the dog. He's such a star!

    I know this might be off topic and i'm not even sure if this Forum is where to post it but does Merlin have a start date yet? Only so many times you can rewatch the promo to get your Merlin fix.....lol My apologies BooMoo if this isn't the right place to post it.

    The proper place for the question would have been in the Q&A Thread. As for the answer to your question, it is posted in the last post of the Q&A. The BBC still have not given an official start date for Series 5.

    _____________

    Merlin article in the November issue of SFX magazine here:
    -Arthur is gambling at a tavern but repeatedly losing to Merlin and his magic.
    -In the three year gap they’ve gotten a lot closer to the Camelot that Arthur has wanted to achieve, but it’s now under threat.
    -There’s stuff happening up North in the frozen lands.
    -Merlin has a place in the new Camelot and the banter between him and Arthur is still present being very much part of who they are.
    -Merlin is more independent of Gaius and in general.
    -In episodes 1 and 2 Mordred has a lot of scenes with Arthur and Merlin and then some with the knights as well.
    -Mordred’s identity is revealed from minute 1 in a very surprising way. His role is more complicated than being in cahoots with Morgana. He is ambiguous and the audience won’t know where his real allegiances lie.
    -Mordred will talk in spells and have a telepathic connection with Merlin.
    -Morgana has been held captive by a bandit king as a consequence of her having magic. It’s a fulfillment of the fears she’s always had about being a magical being so she will become ever more committed to fight back.
    -At the beginning and at the end of the series there are a lot of knight related storylines. The knights are a bit more heroic as the stakes are higher: they are fighting a war not just a battle.

    Angel and Katie were apparently interviewed together and it was really funny and cute. Neither had a lot to say about what their characters will be doing but about working with the cast, costumes, etc. Mostly about them as actresses. It was cute.


    I'm a Guinevere fan but wasn't too disappointed as we've gotten quite a lot of info on the coming season re the queen already. Most of the info about Morgana came from Alex I think. Anyway, there was a gorgeous picture of Queen Guinevere in her red dress, though it was rather small relative to the other pictures. Trying not to have a complaining spirit here even though there have been disappointments along the way, but from what I've seen in other interviews and photos, etc. Gwen is going to have a big part in the season.

    Sept ember pics here thanks to bookwormmoona.

    Any idea who the ladies on horseback are? (Just after the Merlin dog pics). The blonde one might be Eira. What about the brunette? Morgana double? The brunette lady who also gets hanged? It doesn't look like her to me though.

    I think the brunette is Morgana's double, aside from that not sure, I don't remember what the actress who plays Eira looks like (and I'm to lazy to go and check) but maybe she's someone who had to something with her plan. The fact that Eoin is there make's me think it is Eira.

    yes that is true I agree. the problem is that iv been disappointed sooo many ties int e past re Gwen (who is my fav character lol) that I am quite skeptical about them doing her justice this season.

    Thank you, yafu2

    Since Eira and Morgana are in cahoots the brunette one might be a stunt for her indeed.The dress seems to have elaborated pattern on the sleeves like Morgana's.

    Piece of news on French tv about the filming of Merlin in Pierrefonds and the future of the show here.

    Crew and French extras say no more Merlin (at least no more Merlin in France) but at the same time someone involved in the production team says that BBC and Shine want more Merlin but that contracts (originally signed for 5 years) need renegotiating.

    The contract with Pierrefonds may need to be renegotiated as well. Maybe they meant there was no more currently negotiated Pierrefonds dates?


    Or maybe they have enough of the castle set built and enough images for green screen.


    Tis a beautiful castle, though.
