Summary

Richard Carpenter’s Robin of Sherwood

‘King of Sherwood’

(Set during Series Two)

Wickham is not a happy village and, when Meg is threatened by Gisburne’s soldiers, Will Scarlet loses his temper and Wickham fears reprisals. The once loyal villagers, without Edward of Wickham to guide them, begin to turn on the outlaws who regularly save their lives. Fortunately, another Hooded Man has entered the first - with his own good lady and band of men. Is he the saviour or the charlatan of Sherwood?

Robin of Sherwood: King of Sherwood

A difference of opinion over how to deal with a soldier threatening the village of Wickham causes Will Scarlet to leave Robin's band and join forces with a new Hooded Man, who claims to have answered Herne's call after a fire and who promises that those who live by the sword shall surely die by the sword.

Jon Culshaw's impersonation of Ray Winstone is given a chance to shine in this story, which moves along at a decent pace. The script is reasonably good and is in the style of its parent series. A slight drawback is Freddie Fox's Gisburne. It's not that he doesn't sound like the late Robert Addie (he doesn't), but rather that he doesn't play the role as a surly, arrogant and ultimately useless man at arms to the always brilliant Nickolas Grace as Robert de Rainault.
