The fourth season of fantasy drama Merlin starts on BBC One on Saturday 1 October 2011 with a two-part thriller that sees Merlin (played by Colin Morgan) again up against the evil Morgana (played by Katie McGrath). The third season ended with Merlin coming out on top of his battle with Morgana and her sister Morgause (played by Emilia Fox) but this has left Morgause disfigured.
Morgana finds her powers stronger than ever and so calls forth the Callieach (played by Gemma Jones) to open up the veil between the worlds causing hellish creatures to attack and kill. Uther (played by Anthony Head) is still out of sorts because of Morgana’s betrayal and thus it falls to Arthur (played by Bradley James) to defend the realm. But it will take more than swords, as Merlin soon realises, but can he help while still protecting his secret?
