The Cast of ‘Merlin’: Where Are They Now?

It doesn’t seem all that long since BBC AMERICA’s Merlin came to an end, but in actuality it’s been three years. And quite a lot can happen in a few years’ time. It may seem longer because we grew attached to the series and its characters after five seasons (2008-2012). If you’re missing the cast, you can […]

Rupert Grint, Colin Morgan and Ben Whishaw in ‘Mojo’

Merlin, Q, Bates and Ron Weasley Have Formed A Gang

‘Merlin’ Recap: ‘The Kindness of Strangers’

We begin in the dark, with a chase. There are dogs, there are explosions, and Morgana has caught someone. It’s Alator the torturer.
