Entertaining 17 and 18 year old's is never easy and can be a difficult task. Firstly, Merlin arrived late after the majority of students had arrived. Perhaps arriving late put him off his game, but knowing the age of his audience well in advance, Merlin couldn't seem to capture their attention or connect with them, definitely falling flat! Originally the students seemed intent on watching the show but for only 5-10 minutes and then walked away. Disappointing.
