How could it possibly be a spoiler? The only thing it could possibly be is that they were on set at the same time, which they've already been in the series I believe.

yes they have been on set together briefly, but they have a history I was wondering if we were going to see more of that

Hopefully, but that doesn't mean the quote was a spoiler.

Re: Merlin on BBC1 (SPOILERS)

I like this show. Its lightweight entertaiment and is perfect for Saturday nights (well nothing can be worse than that bloody Hole in the Wall show!!)

Anyone think that this particular episode is inspired by a certain Monty Python sketch

Re: Merlin on BBC1 (SPOILERS)

dunno, but it's definitely interesting to learn what was between Uther and Nimueh and that sword's certainly got a role to play!

Re: Merlin on BBC1 (SPOILERS)

I've just been thinking the real reason they've not stuck to the legend at all could very well be to keep us guessing, rather than to insult anyone's intelligence or lazy writing as some people are thinking.

Good episode, nice revelations about just why Uther hates magic so much, and I have to admit I actually though they might kill Uther...I also had a fear Uther was going to kill Gaius at one point.

And hooray, Alexander Siddig next week!!

Maybe the title of the episode had something to do with the name of the sword?

Yeah, it was nice to see why Uther hates magic, and it was nice to see some spark of a different side of him.
I thought the same thing, I knew they wouldn't, but I couldn't help but think it.

Yeah, it's nice to see Sid in something again.

yes that had been bugging me, and I assume you all know what the episode was called.

There was actually a reason I put a wink after wondering if the sword has a name!

Because you expected a huge spaceship commanded by Captain Matthew Gideon?

Re: Merlin on BBC1 (SPOILERS)

Alexander Siddig looked fantastic in this weeks episode.

I guess we must be heading towards the end of this now.

Is Giles going to survive the season, he must die so Arthur can become king.
