Re: Merlin getting better and better

An Arthurian series set in the time of the 6th century historical Arthur - or the closest history gets to him - could be interesting (and was, as Arthur of the Britons), but it's got nothing to do with the Camelot myths. So black characters in Merlin has never been a problem.
The multi-racial world of the 2006-2009 Robin Hood was more dubious, but not entirely ahistorical. Compared with that series's greater problems - in terms of history, or basic quality until a new writing team came in for season 3 - it was a minor niggle.
