Since the Arthurian legend played a part in the background of the series
(Arthur himself, Avalon, Merlin, and for your future plans, the Fisher
King heading the Illuminati), I thought that I'd ask you - what is your opinion
on the debate over whether Arthur was based on a historical figure or not?
Do you think that there may have been a real "Arthur" in the 5th and 6th
centuries (if no doubt very different from his legendary counterpart), or
do you view him as more likely to have been purely a creation of the
storytellers of the age?

I feel strongly that there must have been an historical Arthur. And
that he must have been fairly impressive in his own right.
