Okay, so like a lot of viewers I was left rather baffled at the conclusion of Merlin: that despite what the show-runners had been telling us for the past four series (and much of the fifth) the much-vaunted Golden Age of Camelot, in which the kingdoms of Albion were to be united and the ban on magic was to be lifted, never actually happened. Arthur dies at the tender age of twenty-nine without really achieving much of anything during his lifetime and without really deserving the moniker of the Bestest King Ever. So, what gives?
Okay, but there were news articles earlier this week about how they’d cast John Hurt to play a ‘lost regeneration’ of the Doctor, because Someone got his panties in a twist because Chris Eccleston wouldn’t come back for the 50th.
And, you know, god forbid he get someone from Classic Who.
