    @chayiana, Thanks for sharing your beautiful pics of Pierrefonds. I really loved the one with the rainbow arching over the castle, it was absolutely stunning.

    According to CultFix Merlin series 5 will air on September 29th Source. The BBC has confirmed that they will only air 6 new episodes of Doctor Who during 2012 (5 episodes from series 7 + a Christmas Specia) and then 8 further ones during 2013 Source.

    -That should leave room for 13 episodes of Merlin in the BBC's autumn schedule. If would premiere on August 25th (second half of Doctor Who's 6th series premiered on August 27th last year) then Merlin series 5 could air from on September 29th to December 22nd.

    -TPTB seem to believe that'd be the case as stated at the beginning of this article scan.

    There is no official confirmation on the matter yet though.

    That sounds right to me, as the 1st episode of the new series of Doctor Who is premiered in late August at the Edinburgh Festival. I take that to mean it will air on tv shortly afterwards. It will be like last year, Doctor Who in late August/September then Merlin right up 'til Christmas!

    Comic Con program here. My guess on the favourite gotta-be-there-to-see guests are John Bradley and probably Liam Cunningham who might be there as well with the GOT panel.

    Apparently the guest star is gonna be Anthony Head:

    "Colin Morgan, Katie McGrath, Anthony Head, Johnny Capps, Julian Murphy
    Drawing for Line Tickets to be held Sunday at 9:00 am in the Autograph Area
    Sunday AA3 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm"
    Source

    There goes my guess

    Nope, it's not Anthony Head, because Tony is appearing at London Film & Comic Con this weekend, not in San Diego. At least, that's what @MerlinOfficial tweeted.

    MerlinOfficial has proven to be really bad at updating cast gigs but it would be pretty if the ComicCon official site has the info wrong as well.

    No idea how they got that false info. Maybe they used the same text from 2 years ago, when Tony was at SDCC, and just added Katie.

    Oh, I really hope for Liam Cunningham!! I'm so curious about his character, and he's just a fantastic actor!

    Riiight. I don't trust this. How does this user know the team isn't just trying to throw people off the trail? The only way I'll believe Season 5 is the last is if I don't see "Merlin will Return" at the end of Episode 5.13. And even I don't see it, I'll still be keeping my eyes peeled just in case they change their minds and do end up doing a Season 6.
