So Merlin dies because he allows his desire to overcome his common sense. He knows he shouldn’t give away his secrets, but he does it anyway –and pays the price when he is betrayed. But he is as much betrayed by himself, as by the woman (Nimue/Viviane) who seduces him, and uses his magic against him.
That’s the origin of the story of Enchantress. In spite of the magical background, this story happens to real people, and it happens in real places today.
Production was entirely on locations in and around Farnham, about 60 kilometres south-west of London, England, where we're lucky to have a tremendous variety of scenery and bulding in a small area.

This is a contemporary story – a thriller - but it has its roots in the stories of Merlin, which go back perhaps 1500 years. In these and other ancient stories, there is no separation between “magic” and “real life”. Goblins, fairies, and magicians are as much a part of everyday life as people or animals that inexplicably fall ill; unseasonal weather; and sudden death.
