A Remedy To Cure All Ills - S1-E6

Character mistake: King Uther calls the Lady Morgana, Morgause. (00:11:50)

The Poisoned Chalice - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: During the Treaty signing Merlin's cape collar goes up and down depending on the type of shot it is - close up the collar is up, distance the collar is down.

Valiant - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Arthur is fighting Valiant, it switches to a long shot, but this mistakenly shows two of the other knights fighting each other before cutting back to Arthur and Valiant.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: The two vials are identified as Valerian sleeping potion (clear liquid) and Henbane (yellow liquid, deadly poison). Gwen pours the yellow liquid in the king's cup, but it's supposed to be the Valerian potion used here that puts the king to sleep. Gwen later dumps the sleeping potion into his ear when it should have been the poison. Then at the end when the Merchant identifies the 2 vials he identifies the yellow as Valerian and the clear vial as Henbane. (00:18:35 - 00:24:25)

The Wicked Day - S4-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When Arthur goes to Dragoon to ask for help, when Dragoon runs out of the hut to turn back into Merlin, on the left hand side of the screen you can see a camera crew in modern clothes. [Fixed in Netflix version]. (00:23:00)

New this month Suggested correction: When he exits the hut Arthur's and Merlin's horses are on the left partially obscured by the brush making what they are a little difficult to see and could have been mistaken for a camera crew dressed in dark clothing.

New this month Suggested correction: I don't see any crew. I'm watching it on Netflix. Perhaps they fixed or perhaps they edited it out after realizing the mistake. But they aren't there anymore.

Even if Netflix corrected the mistake doesn't mean the mistake is now invalid if the mistake existed in the original BBC One airing. Netflix is known to change or edit programs they stream (such as replacing soundtrack songs).

Excalibur - S1-E9

Other mistake: In the scene where Uther takes Excaliber from Merlin while preparing for his duel with the black knight, we see that Uther is left handed. He tests the balance of the sword with his left hand, and in fact wears his sword on his right hip in all other episodes. Once he puts his helmet on and begins his duel with the black knight he suddenly becomes right handed.

The Poisoned Chalice - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: After Merlin drinks from the goblet he puts his empty right hand up to his face. However, when he collapses the goblet is shown falling out of his right hand.
