Merlin and Doctor Who

As many of you know, Doctor Who is my favorite show to watch. I started watching it a couple of years ago when I read an article that said "Weeping Angels" were the scariest monster ever shown on television. So I found the Doctor Who episode "Blink" and tried it out. After that, I got hooked and have converted many to "Whovianism" and now we watch it as a family.

I started watching a new British show, Merlin and quickly discovered that many of the actors on Merlin have also been guests on Doctor Who. Here are some fun facts about Merlin actors who made surprise visits on Doctor Who.

MERLIN- Colin Morgan- The main character of the show Merlin who plays a gifted young wizard with a great destiny.




 He was the snarky teen, Jethro, on the Doctor Who episode, "Midnight"

 GAIUS- Richard Wilson- Merlin's mentor
