Step into the magically mundane world that is the life of 21st century wizard Mordrin McDonald. An isolated 2000-year-old sorcerer with enough power in his small finger to destroy a town, yet not even enough clout to get his bins emptied on time by the local council. Even for such a skilful sorcerer modern life is rubbish!

Mordrin is deadpan, dry and makes delicious jams. He initially set up as a plc for income tax relief, but has found it a useful vehicle to help him bolster his Wizard skill set and his range of services. (Even a wizard has to diversify). He's been running Fruity Potions from his cave for the past few years, in between completing the odd quest as instructed by the Wizard Council. In the past his services were to help kings in battles of good and evil, or as he prefers to put it, assisting with neighbour disputes

Step into the magically mundane world that is the life of 21st century wizard Mordrin McDonald.

An isolated 2000-year-old sorcerer with enough power in his small finger to destroy a town, yet not even enough clout to get his bins emptied on time by the local council.

Even for such a skilful sorcerer - modern life is rubbish!

Mordrin is deadpan, dry and makes delicious jams.

He initially set up as a plc for income tax relief, but has found it a useful vehicle to help him bolster his Wizard skill set and his range of services.

(Even a wizard has to diversify).

He's been running Fruity Potions from his cave for the past few years, in between completing the odd quest as instructed by the Wizard Council.

In the past his services were to help kings in battles of good and evil, or as he prefers to put it, 'assisting with neighbour disputes.'

This week Mordrin has to prepare for the visit of Merlin to Blairochil, and eyeing an opportunity for a promotion, pulls out all the stops.

Even for such a skilful sorcerer, modern life is rubbish!

In this episode, Mordrin (David Kay) is enlisted by fellow wizard Bernard The Blue (Jack Docherty) to help tackle a fiery meteor which is heading straight to earth and is threatening to wipe out all civilisation. However, Mordrin's attention is swayed from the task in hand by news that Heather has a new boyfriend in the shape of slimy patter merchant Aiden. (Donald Pirie). Will Mordrin be able to be distracted long enough from aiming pot shots at Aiden to save the world from certain doom?

Mordrin is deadpan, dry and makes delicious jams. He initially set up his jam-making business Fruity Potions as a plc for income tax relief, but has found it a useful vehicle to help him bolster his skill set and his range of products and services. (Even a wizard has to diversify these days.) He's been running Fruity Potions from his cave for the past few years, in between completing the odd quest as instructed by the Wizard Council. In the past, his services were to help kings in battles of good and evil, or as he prefers to put it 'assisting with neighbour disputes'. Now it can range from killing the odd Jakonty Dragon to an array of end of the world-type scenarios.

Step into the magically mundane world that is the life of 21st Century Wizard Mordrin McDonald. An isolated 2000 year-old Scottish sorcerer with enough power in his small finger to destroy a town, yet insufficient clout to get a speed bump installed outside his cave by the local council. Even for such a skilful sorcerer, modern life is rubbish!

In this episode, Mordrin (David Kay) finally gets an opportunity to get a seat on the Wizard Council. The Golden Phoenix has flown down the chimney at the Wizard Chambers signifying the start of the election process, which only happens every 150 years, and Mordrin has been called to stand. It's a brilliant chance for Mordrin to finally get some clout in the Wizard community, the only downside is that failure to win at the ballot box will result in certain fiery death under the Golden Phoenix. Mordrin decides to call upon Bernard (Jack Docherty) to be his campaign manager.
