"Ang Panday" or simply "Panday" (The Blacksmith) is a fantaserye television series that was aired in the Philippines by ABS-CBN. The pilot episode of the first book (Panday: Unang Yugto) aired on November 7, 2005 and ended with its last episode on December 9, 2005. The second book (Panday: Ang Ikalawang Yugto), aired its pilot episode on April 3, 2006, and ended with the series' finale on May 26, 2006. The series is based on the fictional comics character of the same name, which was created by Carlo J. Caparas and illustrated by Steve Gan.



A meteor crashes into the desert of Sto. Sepulcro. The town blacksmith, Flavio, forges a dagger and a churchbell from the remains of the meteor. He uses the dagger to fight off the evil Sombra Oscura, who constantly attacks the town. By some mystical power, the dagger transforms into a great sword every time Flavio wields it.

In his final battle against evil, the Panday faces off against Lizardo, the son of the devil and the leader of the Sombras. The battle is intense, but Flavio prevails in the end, vanquishing Lizardo.

Having saved Sto. Sepulcro, Flavio decides to give up his sword. He goes to the church and casts his fabled weapon into the bell he also made. A white light then shoots out from the sky, and it lifts up Panday into the heavens.

The people of Sto. Sepulcro rejoice now that Panday has brought them peace. Unbeknownst to them, the Sombras discover that there is a part of Lizardo that is still alive - his brain.

In order to bring him back to life, they must transcend time and space to look for the girl who can resurrect their master.


Despite the promotions for the series, "Panday's" First Chapter wasn't able to surpass the ratings of its competitors, Sugo and Encantadia. Because of this, the show's airing was temporarily halted and was due to be back in January 2006 as seen in several plugs. Although the reason was not clear for the show's delay, it ultimately returned to its primetime block on April 3, 2006 for its Second Chapter. The initial episode according to AGB Nielsen Media Research spun a 34.6% overnight rating, few points below than its rival show.

It's highest rating was 44.7%, the lowest was 18.1%.


Panday literally means "the blacksmith", "Ang Panday" is the TV adaptation of the hit Fernando Poe Jr. movie-series "Ang Panday" that lorded the silverscreens during the early 1980s. It is about a blacksmith who made an enchanted sword that gives him special powers to embattle the dark forces.

Today, Philippine TV station ABS-CBN relives the magic of Panday as they bring it on TV.This soap opera was actually claimed not to be shot as an actual soap opera, but a movie.

Some of the location shots were taken in a remote town in Bohol, where the beach is white as the folks called it "colgate-white".
