And as a bonus, here’s what Anthony Stewart Head (Uther) had to say about the series coming to an end:
“Hats off to Julian and Johnny, the producers, for sticking to their guns with the five season story arc of Merlin. It would have been too easy to give in to demand and stretch the show on beyond their original plan because of its incredible success. Instead, Merlin finishes at the height of its success and will, therefore, live on in people’s memory. That’s certainly what happened with Buffy – and it really doesn’t happen that often.
“As for myself, I really miss working with such a talented and warm-hearted bunch of people – cast, crew, production. Everyone in London, Wales and France made the Merlin experience a very, very special one. Thank you all.”
