Uther (Anthony Head) is gravely ill, Morgana (Katie McGrath) is officially evil, the sword has been placed in the stone, the Round Table is up and running and Arthur (Bradley James) still has no idea that Merlin (Colin Morgan) is magic...if you didn't know that, then you didn't watch Season 3 of "Merlin." (Shame on you.)

Fortunately, you've got a chance to catch up when Syfy runs its Christmas Day "Merlin" marathon (from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.) as a lead up to the series' Season 4 premiere on Jan. 6.

Meanwhile, BBC Home Video has revealed that the Season 3 box set will hit stores on Jan. 17. The 5-disc set retails for $49.98 and will include select episode audio commentaries, a "Making of" featurette, outtakes and video from the inaugural "Merlin" panel at last year's San Diego Comic Con.

Curious about what series stars Colin Morgan (Merlin) and Bradley James (Arthur) have to say about this season? Here's some of what they told their production company...


... Q: What’s Arthur and Merlin's relationship like at the start of this season?

COLIN MORGAN: "They are master and servant, but they have also always been friends. They can't help but like each other for their own quirks. What is different this season is that you see a vulnerable prince making use of Merlin as an adviser. For his part, Merlin realizes how much he needs to be strong for Arthur's sake..."

... Q: What has happened to Arthur since we last saw him?

BRADLEY JAMES: "Arthur has to take the responsibility for the kingdom on his shoulders because his father has lost his mind. All eyes in the kingdom are now upon Arthur, looking to him, not to Uther, who is hiding in the corner of the room, rocking back and forth. Morgana poses an enormous threat to the kingdom Arthur is trying to protect. He has been thrown into the deep end of a very grave situation indeed..."
