BBC (ended 2012)
|But one of the spoilers, I think is a red herring - for Mr Vlahos, as an example, we see him in his typical green druid cloak, if M&M are supposed to be teaming up, how does that fit with Katie's description of medival cotoure?|
If you are talking about this picture. It is a fan manip of Alexander Vlahos as Mordred, there are no pictures from current filming at the moment.
|-(April 3rd) Snow is playing merry hell with our fake snow. |
-(April 3rd) Mmm, problem, How to get snarling wolf leaping at camera.....I know, tie a chicken leg to the end of the lens....brilliant.
-(April 2nd) Have just been howling with the wolves.
-(April 1st) Off to play with magic wolves for 'merlin' in Wales tomorrow. Very exciting.
|I was thinking the same, Liviana178. A snowed on Pierrefonds is too lovely but I also think that the scenes with the wolves are gonna be random forest ones *pouts*|
I think its a mistake for them to get too hush hush about everything. If no one's talking about your show, eventually no one will be talking about your show. They have to spread some tidbits around to keep the interest up. We need something to turn the motors of speculation!
If we can't speculate, we'll have to extrapolate (I think I have a piece of fairy cake here somewhere... ah yes)
The only reason I can think of for such secrecy is that the PTB don't want us to see Merlin using magic in front of Arthur while Arthur is conscience and Arthur being perfectly fine with that... which means a non season ender reveal, but a mid season one.
I'll have you know PTB, I am more excited about the eventuality of that possibility possibly occurring than I would be if I were to have no indirect lack of evidence to prove otherwisely contradictory, so THERE!
If that is the case, then hopefully the PTB have figured out that, yes, this show can continue beyond a reveal for seasons to come as long as the Even Greater Powers That Be (EGPTB a.k.a the BBC) deem Merlinnecessary to continue. All they have to do is move from one bit of angst to the next, just like people do in life anyway.
...wow, that was some fairy cake.
-(April 5th) Winter wonderland! Was very cool to work with the BBCs Merlin crew and cameraman Toby Strong! -(April 5th) Incredible couple of days in Wales with wolves and 7 inches of snow!! Source.
|Concerning Merlin (This quote was in your initial list of spoilers, but wasn't properly cited), he adds "The stakes are becoming higher now that Arthur is king and the future of Albion is being created, there's more for Merlin to fight for and more for him to protect so as he gets older, he's tested as a character because everything in the world becomes more serious." |
|-Merlin has gone from reluctantly killing enemies to protect the king to becoming a much more focused, powerful and stronger wizard (as killing Agravaine and his attempt on Morgana's life prove) as he grows into the sorcerer of legend. Series 5 will take him on that journey with all the dangers and temptations that it brings. With Arthur being King and Albion already in the making there'll be more for Merlin to fight for and to protect. As he gets older, he's tested as a character because everything in the world becomes more serious (...)Source and Source.|
|I have a feeling it's gonna be the last season and they want to keep plots a bit more secret than usual. If there isn't any block 1 filming at Pierrefonds this year as reported before, that'll work toward their goal... until they release very revealing promo pics like the did with 4x03. |

not sure if you know and forgot to remove it, but the Joseph Mawle thing was fake.
Both sources you posted have nothing: http://www.simplesite.com/JosephMawle/ andhttp://cultfix.co.uk/merlin-series-5-another-returning-character-17191.htm
|-Joseph Mawle to return as Alvarr in eps 5x01 and 5x02: "Yes! It's exciting I know! Last time I was in it my character just disappeared and I wondered if we'd see him again, and here we are! Only the first two episodes of the series but I'm still stoked!" Source and Source ---> This information was apparently a hoax due to April Fools Source.|
I almost posted this in the UFOM, and then realized that Alex Vlahos as Mordred in Series 5 is a spoiler.
Just for general interest, Alex will be joining Bradley, Tom, Adetomiwa and Eoin as Team Merlin for the Soccer Six tournament on May 20.
Speculation but Liam Cunningham might have been filming for Merlin: -Been filming with the wonderful Richard Wilson. Can you believe it?
-Flew from Dublin to Cardiff yesterday to be a corpse today. I rehearsed the scene after a few pints last night.
-That a Game of Thrones spoiler?? Definitely not! A different job.
Apri 12th twitters Source (and Source).
-so ur gonna be on Merlin?
-it's not beyond the realms of speculation.
April 15th twitters Source.
Back to the Soccer Six team, actor Ross Machin seems to play another character in series 5.
..Alexander Vlahos & Ross Machin, new characters in Series 5! Exciting stuff, can the new additions live up to the title- reigning champs?! Source.
Merlin filming wolves in Wales with wolves and fake snow pictures here and here.
Edit: The original source (cameraman Ryan Edwards) has removed the twitters. You can see the pictures here.
