Here’s the first full trailer for the BBC’s Merlin replacement Atlantis. It looks epic in scale with the now standard trope of lead character being a chosen one with a great destiny ahead of him. Perhaps you can blame the period setting but it seems somewhat disappointing that there isn’t a female lead apparent from this trailer with boys going on adventures and only Juliet Stevenson present here acting as the oracle. Perhaps more will become apparent as we learn more about the show.
