In a wide ranging discussion Dissecting Worlds looks at such versions of Arthur as:
TV’s Merlin (BBC series) and Camelot (Starz series.)
Film’s Excalibur and First Knight
The History of the Kings of Britain by Geoffrey of Monmouth
Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Mists of Avalon
TH White’s entire Once and Future King series
Bernard Cornwell’s Warlord series
Lord Alfred Tennyson’s poetry
D’Morte D’Arthur by Sir Thomas Mallory
& in the process they invoke:
SunTsu’s The Art of War
John Adair’s Action Centred Leadership model
Former English Cricket Captain & Psychoanalyst Mike Brearley’s ‘The Art of Captaincy.’
And fall out over Vikings !

If you  have a lot of time to listen to this while you do something else that doesn't require a lot of thought; I highly reccomend listening to this podcast, Merlin fans.  You will hear many references to BBC's Merlin and the character Arthur in particular.  -EmrysDragolord

  1. Do you know if there is any academic papers on BBC Merlin? I'm a grad student, who is working on paper on Harry Potter and BBC Merlin. I haven't found any thing academic so far for BBC Merlin, besides the Arthurian legend (which I'll also use). I just really want to see if there is any papers that might be useful to cite for BBC Merlin. If you're able to help, I would really appreciate it. Thanks.
