    He seems to have done most of his acting work in the UK, so it wouldn't appear to be a problem for him working in the UK.

    yeah, he's actually from America, but moved here did a load of work, briefly went back to America as Isaac in Heroes and returned to the UK where he's doing the narration for Heroes Unmasked for S3.

    i havnt bothred with Heroes Unmasked, TBH I only watch Doctor Who Confidential, in that genre of programming, nice for Heroes Unmasked to have an ex Heroes actor doing the voice however.

    Best episode so far. The show rose above its fluffy origins here. I figured the kid was Mordred, but still a heck of a reveal at the end, and the fact that Merlin was quite prepared to let the boy die was quite shocking, and just on the word of a dragon!

    Plus we're starting to see little moments that will surely bult towards Morgana going bad, and I really like how they've continued the evolution of Arthur. Anyone else thinking that eventually it will come down to Arthur having to take the crown from Uther?

    Yeah, I was thinking that, Uther seems to be blinded by his hatred of magic, to the point where he'd end up causing the destruction of the kingdom in order to fight it.

    He's a fanatic alright, and he doesn't seem to comprehend that magic is a natural thing, that people will continue to be born magical as Morgana and Merlin have been, he can never eradicate it.

    Well you might be out of luck there, the first volume is out soon, but it doesn't look like it's gonna be all that cheap, £24.99 RRP, or around £15.99 online.

    "Do you believe in political parties?" "Yeah, I believe in them, they exist." That was a fantastic answer. :lol:

    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. :confused:

    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 ;)
