This is a bit late. (Sorry, I'm from the US). But, I like the program for a number of reasons. Primarily these are:

1) The use of the Hero Archetype of story telling in literature coupled with elements of comedy in the format of melodrama using a backdrop of Romance, Myth and Legend. It makes for a charming diversion.

2) The use of basic psychologic principles regarding Ego Defense Mechanisms and Group dynamics to show how healthy versus non-healthy methods can lead to success or failure (It's very simplified but like a morality play it is there and teaches an important lesson about maturity and growth).

What I don't like is that in Series 4, Merlin has been emotionally stunted--- delayed if not taken back a bit.
