Character Actor Reading at Its Best

I have never watched the TV series from which these stories are taken, but I know a good impression of Keith Allen when I hear it. Sympathy for Marion throughout, as she fights for her own values, and a very creditable female voice helps. I really enjoy this audio book as a one man radio play, fun for grown-ups, and no doubt enjoyable for young boys on long journeys.

Great fun

Another fun story wonderfully read by Richard Armitage. He does all the voices so well especially the Sherriff and of course his own character Guy of Gisborne.

Just as good as the original episode

I love the sound of Richard Armitage’s voice, it is like silk. He is an excellent narrator and really brings the story to life.

Fun re-visit

I watched these episodes on TV years ago and thought it would be fun to listen to them as a story. Armitage is an excellent storyteller and I can't wait to listen to the rest of these.

He gave each character a voice of their own and made them easier to identify.
