Merlin!! When, when's it starting?! I love Merlin! And that looks really good!

And, although I didn't think much of the last season of Dr Who that trailer looks good and yay for Rory and River and TRICERATOPS!!!! And Daleks!

I know! TRICERATOPS!!!!!! Rory and River were both the best things about the last series of DW.

Merlin looks interesting, and it does seem to have been getting darker every series. Is it me, or is Bradley James looking *a lot* older now? Okay, I know he *is* about five years older than he was when they started, but I wonder if they've emphasised it deliberately now that he's king?

I have no idea when either of them are starting, just 'coming soon' and 'Autumn'.

I've been writing about Triceratops all week, and then there they were!! Yay! They're the best dinos! And agree on Rory and River.

I think Bradley looks a bit older, yes, but he needs to, he's king as you say. BUT I'm sure that Merlin was supposed to end when Arthur became king - glad to see they changed their mind about that.

It must be Autumn soon.

You have triceratops in fic? Yey! Triceratops is my second favourite dinosaur (after deinonychus, of course :-)).

I think they had always hoped they would get five series, but anything after five might be a bit iffy. I was quite surprised when he became king so early in the previous series, though.

OMG the Who trailer! Daleks! Millions of 'em! :-D Old Skool and Smartie Daleks together. That should be fun.

Really must try to catch up with Merlin, too - still haven't seen the latter half of the last series.

The trailer for DW looks awesome, I am really looking forward to it.

My memories of the last series of Merlin were that it was a bit up and down. It started really well, but there was a real dip in the middle, with several quite forgettable episodes, and then it picked up again for the big finale.

I may need to rewatch S4 Merlin before it comes back, to see if my opinion has changed on a second watching.

I think I've got it all recorded on my PVR, it's just a matter of finding the time to rewatch/watch it before the new series starts. Maybe I'll skip the middle and just watch the last few, then go back and pick the rest up later.

Definitely looking forward to Doctor Who.

They're good aren't they? I'm definitely looking forward to Merlin and I'm a bit worried that however Amy and Rory leave Doctor Who is going to break me.

Yes, I do think I may need to have a box of tissues handy for Amy and Rory. Meep!

Saw the Merlin trailer for the first time the other night, and then the Doctor Who trailer a couple of nights later - BBC1 have been broadcasting the trailers for their Autumn dramas every night at the same time in the middle of the Olympic broadcasts.

The Merlin trailer has an epic soundtrack too (just saw it again this morning and jumped up and down in excitement!).

I caught half of the DW trailer while I was channel hopping, and then *had* to go online and see the full thing. And then rewatch it twice! And then decided while I was there, I may as well check out the Merlin trailer as well.

Also, vaguely related due to Matt Smith, I finally got round to watching Bert and Dickie this morning. Rather good, actually.

I may have let out a very small squeal of delight when I saw the Dr Who trailer as apparently Rupert Graves is going to be in the dinosaur episode. Dinosaurs AND Rupert Graves *g*
