Clarke’s collaboration with director Stanley Kubrick on the iconic 2001 predicted videophones, iPads, and commercial spaceflight--while redefining science-fiction cinema for a new generation.

Exclusive interview: Merlin executive producers Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy

by Dave Golder
November 26 2011

You may have noticed the change, or maybe it’s just on the edge of your consciousness, but Merlin looks a little different this year. A little more cinematic. It’s not just the more ambitious effects, or the fact that exterior shots of Camelot seems to have been given an extreme makeover. It’s not just that the young cast suddenly seems to have matured a lot. It’s not just that the addition of the Knights of the Round Table seems to have ushered in grander action sequences. Although all those things are true, to be sure. But also, with series four, for the first time the show is being shot on proper, feature movie quality 35 mill film.

This is not just a mere technical adjustment. It’s a symbol of a show that’s going from strength to strength. This time last year, we thought that series four was going to be only ten episodes and American TV was planning a lavish new show called Camelot. It felt like, perhaps, Merlin was preparing to wind down. But then the viewing figures for the 2010 season turned out to be the best yet, and improved throughout the run. Suddenly, series four was back up to 13 episodes, it was to be shot on 35 mill and a massive new green screen was created in the show’s Cardiff studios to create even more grandiose effects. Camelot was cancelled. Series four started airing and is performing even better than series three, and the producers are now talking about a possible sixth series (if not more). The future looks bright in 35 mill.

Better than all that, the fourth series is turning out to be one of the best yet from what we’ve seen so far. And you can catch up with the first half when the Merlin Series Four Part One DVD is released on Monday [in the UK]...


Both Capps and Murphy are keen to point out the darkening, more adult tone of the series was pretty much an organic development rather than a calculated change. It’s reflected in a subtle change to the opening narration. Camelot’s destiny now lies with a “young man” rather than a “boy”.

Yes,” says Murphy, “that’s a response to what you’re seeing on screen. Colin is a long way from the innocent character he was in series one. He’s grown as a character. Merlin is very much a man now, and we need to reflect that.”

The series are also becoming more serialised, with more plots, as the years go by.

We have gradually increased that more over the four seasons and that was always really our plan,” agrees Murphy. “I think when you bring in these big adventure franchises, you’re quite conscious that you need the stories-of-the-week to dominate to begin with. Particularly when you’re going for a very young audience, I think that’s important...

... Mitch Albom's Have a Little Faith

9-11 PM ABC

This adaptation of Albom's faith-oriented 2009 nonfiction book stars Bradley Whitford as the author, Martin Landau as the kind of jovial rabbi who says that believing in God is an "occupational hazard," and Laurence Fishburne as the kind of pastor who used to deal blow. The result is a handsome, heartfelt sermon — but a sermon nonetheless.
