Merlin – [Series 4 Episode 4]  "Aithusa"

Saturday 22 October
8.15-9.00pm BBC ONE

The mysterious Julius Borden arrives in Camelot with news of a magical secret that threatens to change the landscape of the kingdom for ever, as the fantasy drama continues. He has located the final part of the key to the tomb of Ashkanar – an ancient mausoleum which holds a very special treasure: the last remaining dragon's egg.

Merlin is understandably drawn in by Borden's news and promises to help him. But just who is this enigmatic stranger and, more importantly, what does he really want with the egg?

Merlin is played by Colin Morgan and Julius Borden by James Callis.

James Callis and Lindsay Duncan have signed up for guest roles on Merlin.

The pair will both appear in the fantasy drama's upcoming fourth series, it was recently confirmed at a special BFI screening.

Duncan will play the character of Queen Annis in the fourth episode. The actress has previously appeared in Doctor Who special 'The Waters of Mars', HBO and BBC co-production Rome and Tim Burton's 2010 film version of Alice in Wonderland.

Battlestar Galactica's Callis will feature in the fifth episode as Borden, an old pupil of Gaius (Richard Wilson).

His past credits include recurring roles on FlashForward and Syfy's recently-axed drama Eureka.

Whitechapel's Phil Davis and former Spooks star Gemma Jones have also signed up for guest roles, while Nathaniel Parker will join the regular cast as Agravaine, the uncle of Arthur (Bradley James).

Merlin co-creators Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy recently revealed that a film version of the hit series is in the works.

ARTHUR What on earth are you doing? 
MERLIN Looking for woodworm. 
ARTHUR Before breakfast! 
MERLIN That's when the worms are most active.
Oddly enough, James Callis has also played “Merlin” in “Merlin & the Book of Beasts” which incidentally I DO NOT recommend, Merlin fans. 
Oddly enough again, he has also played a man named Dr. Gaius Baltar in “Battle Star Galactica” which I am a fan of and DO recommend esp. if you love Sci-fi.
