    Welcome aboard

    Well, having beer cans on Hengist's table was stretching the magic a bit too far but I don't mind about those things at all. If only, they make me smile.

    I don't mind the historical inaccuracies either, ok i don't spot most of them! (tho i did see the beer cans ) I don't get the people who go on and on about all the historical issues, there's a dragon in the show for goodness stake!! It real bugs me, people should just enjoy it as a show set in a mythical place like we do!

    rant over

    For those of you who have watched the last episode of Secrets and Magic, here you can find the caricaturist posing with Colin, Bradley and Katie and of course, their caricatures

    An unusual and completely unnecessary fact:

    If 'Merlin' is to be aired as last year on September 19th, then we have approximately nine months and eight days until then. If a lady on this forum has become pregnant on this very day, then she would most probably deliver before the show begins.

    Lmfao! I wouldn't mind putting your theory into test if only Bradley would give me a hand there... did I say that out loud?

    Wow, she's hot, and smart, and has a good sense of humour, and has graduated English (like me ), from Oxford (unlike me, unfortunately) I WANT HER!

    Official BBC Statement:

    Dear Merlin fan,

    Unfortunately, we have been quite unable to comply with your request of ownership over Miss Fox.

    Best regards,

    BBC and Shine Limited.

    P.S. However, if you would like, we could ask some other female member of the cast for availability.

    Haha

    That was hilarious. Oh, this evil, evil BBC who doesn't yield to the heart's desires...

    Ahem,.. if Katie is available, then I wouldn't mind

    Edit: Not that I find Katie McGrath a second choice to Miss Fox I watched several interviews with Katie, and I like how simple-minded (in a very, very positive sense) she appears to be; very sincere and humble, when she has every reason that other girls as beautiful and gracious as her would use to act snobbishly and almost impossible to approach. So, Katie rocks! I'd miss her very much if she wasn't a regular in Season 3 (BBC and Shine, do you hear?)

    I think the Merlin withdrawal is taking effect big time!!! It is only three and half weeks* since the last episode and 35/36 weeks to go to S3 .

    Good luck boom-moo / illegalferret with Bradley and dpebbleson with Katie and/or Emilia - you are all cracking me up with lots of laughter

    But remember we don't want to postpone or even worse cancel filming of S3!!!

    * though it seems three and half years

    Hmm good point, maybe stalking would be a better plan? Or maybe we could move into the castle in France, or carry out a stake out in the Forest of Dean and Cardiff?!

    Thanks! And/or? Tempting! Maybe I shouldn't be so modest, and should ask BBC to lend me both of them

    Yeah, it seems like three and a half years indeed... That way these 35/36 weeks, are like 35/36 years until Season 3, which will only last for three months, and then again nine months of nothing... Having in mind that BBC released promos for season 2 in September, we'll be waiting for quite some time for any kind of info.

    Well, they start filming in March and a lot of fans go and visit the castle during the summer so I believe we will be getting bits and pieces every now and then

    Can't stop laughing, I'm sure it's going to lead to a serious injury.

    Definitely feels like a lifetime away to S3.

    Re: Stalking

    You know there are anti-stalking / harassment laws ... but I suppose it carries less a prison sentence than kidnapping. We could plead insanity due to our Merlin / Bradley fixation, do you think?

    But I like the idea of moving into the castle, that wouldn't be classed as stalking? Would we be squatting or renting? Can we afford it? Shall we start a charity to raise the funds?
