MERLIN ALTERNATIVE TO X FACTOR
GREAT news for Northern Ireland actor Colin Morgan last week as BBC bosses revealed there are commissioning a fourth series of the hit drama Merlin.
Ben Stephenson, Controller of Drama Commissioning, said: â€œMerlin continues to perform outstandingly well against X Factor and offers audiences an alternative treat on Saturday nights.
â€œI’m pleased to confirm that the magical world of Camelot will be returning next year for a fourth series of this fresh and modern retelling of a classic British legend.â€
Series three will continue on Saturday evenings on BBC One until the finale on December 4. The new ten part series will start filming in March 2011.
