See amateur historians?

They don’t half come up with some odd notions.

Maybe it’s the persuasive power of the way a character like Merlin is portrayed in the fantasy tradition, but Merlin as an auld geezer stoatin around Partick. It just doesn’t compute, y’know?

  1. Don’t know nothing ’bout your books and your learnin’ Mr Ariel, sir, but to a local it just doesn’t feel right…

    …unless Merlin, having never died, just sort of faded out of the picture, is the real name of the ageless and mercurial figure we know as “Billy Connolly”?

    That, I could believe.
