I think it certainly makes a change to see a handsome trainee wizard like Zachary Rogers! Makes a nice change from the irritating Sabrina! I was only 12 when I first saw Mr Merlin and could remember his big blue eyes (sigh!). It always had a moral to the story ie. Dont go for the best looking girls as the plainer ones are nicer people. Which is good advice!! Mr Merlin isnt the sort of comedy that has you in fits of laughter, but its still very good. I`m so pleased to see it after all these years and have just watched 18 episodes of it!
