I'm having fun looking at the many "spoiler" photos of Merlin 4 shooting at Pierrefonds Castle in France. Some really good ones, but not really spoilers. Knights on horseback, some practice fighting, Gwen in a lovely new dress, no longer a servant type garment, and lots of photos of Rupert Young/Sir Leon having a great time. There are also snippets of information about new characters.

Some fans went too far and kept trying to get through security. They found a script and photographed some pages. That's really going too far. Dishonourable behaviour. The pages are on the Internet but I won't read them.

One of the qualities of Merlin that I like is the relative innocence. No graphic violence and sex, which makes a refreshing change. (That is not to say I don't enjoy series with those elements.) I avoid fanfic and sites with slash pairings, which would spoil the series for me. An example of the innocence is Arthur wanting to marry Guinevere rather than making her his mistress, which would be realistic.

It's enjoyable to see photos while waiting for the series to come out, sometime between September and November. Then I'll have to wait a couple of months for the DVDs. But, with the year running away with itself as it is, that's not long.

I haven't found the pics that spoilerish either. Definitely enjoying looking at them during the long wait for Series 4. I really love seeing the knights more.

The thought of fans sneaking through security and taking pictures of scripts though...Yikes. I can't fathom what some people will go through to find out info. :(

Yes, seeing the knights more is great. Having a core group of knights is way overdue. Apart from Arthur, my favourite is Sir Leon. He's tall and gangly, has a lovely voice, is sweet, and enjoys himself (well, Rupert Young really) thoroughly.

Fans who try to breach security on sets may lead to the producers tightening up security. Idiots!

I agree with all your comments. I love seeing all the PF and other pics and videos. I don't consider them all that spoilery, as they are only showing a tiny part of the story and could have a totally different meaning when put in context.

I'll probably have to wait until next May before it's shown on TV here, so thank heavens for online sites!
