The exec producers of Merlin have admitted that they regret certain aspects of the show’s early years.
At a press screening for the fantasy drama’s fifth series, Julian Murphy admitted that he is now “horrified” by how certain scenes were realised.
“If we look back at the first and second series, we’re pretty horrified at the way we executed it – genuinely – ’cause we can do things so much better now,” he explained. “The look and feel of the show is richer and more detailed [now], and that had a real effect on how you experience it as a viewer. We’re quite proud of that shift.”
