Product Description

It’s been three months since Marian's untimely death and Robin is a changed man. Tougher, he's sacked his gang since they all returned from the Holy Land. Not only that – he's hell bent on avenging his wife's tragic end. Her slayer, Guy of Gisborne is a marked man. Fuelled by anger and grief, Robin seems stuck in a downward spiral, but a new beacon of hope arrives in the form of a travelling monk called Tuck (David Harewood), who soon gets our hooded hero back on track. Meanwhile, the wickedness of the Sheriff continues unabated. A spirited Locksley girl named Kate (Joanne Froggatt) objects to her brother's forced conscription. As a result she inadvertently gets caught up in the cause of Robin Hood and becomes an indispensable member of the gang. As the threat of Prince John (Toby Stephens)looms larger, Robin and Gisborne have to reach an uneasy truce as it emerges that they may have rather more in common than they thought.

From Amazon.co.uk

For the third series of Robin Hood, the BBC proves itself more willing than ever to muddle around with the common perception of the story that underpins it. By the time we pick the action up, Marian has been dead for several months, and we find Robin in vengeful mood. Returning from the Holy Land, he’s hell-bent on taking down Guy Of Gisborne, but as you’d expect, things don’t quite go the way that you might expect.

Elsewhere, this third series brings in Friar Tuck, and Robin crosses paths with a new face in his life, Kate. Yet the joy of Robin Hood is in the returning characters. Jonas Armstrong in the title role has grown into the part well, even if the scripts have him dealing with the aftermath of Marian’s death a little quicker than you’d have thought. But it’s Keith Allen as the dastardly Sheriff of Nottingham that has a habit of ritually stealing scenes, while Richard Armitage as Guy Of Gisborne is quite superb, and arguably the highlight. It’s a strong ensemble cast that underpins the show, and by this third series, it’s clear that they’re having a whale of a time.

Series three of Robin Hood isn’t perfect, and sometimes the writing feels a little underwhelming. But even in its weaker moments, such is the strength of the cast that it’s hard not to get a generous dose of entertainment from each episode. It’s shameless blockbuster Saturday night viewing, and all the better for it. --Jon Foster

Series 3 seemed more predicatable then the others, perhaps because I was able to guess some of the plot twists before seeing the episode, but there were some positives.

Some of the plotlines were good, and even satisfying, such as Robin and Gisborne's alliance, and the series finale. I also liked some of the new characters.
Prince John was my personal favourite, a delightfully slippery little weasel, and hopelessly vain. A little too gullible though, I felt.

Kate was just a blonde Marion with a Midlands accent. There seemed little difference between the two, with Kate insisting she was perfectly capable of looking after herself, despite her uncanny knack for being captured. She was not very well developed, and rather too full of herself.

Isabella's seems to have a serious identity crisis . Throughout the series she took on many personas. At first a poor, innocent, victim of abuse, then an angered avenger, a fifth columnist, a manipulative treacherous seductress, and a helpless victim again when her husband comes back, who runs to Robin begging for help. In one episode she promises to bring justice and fairness to Nottingham, the next she is an evil tyrant.

The costumes were better in this series, the plumed helmets are gone, and there are no women in trousers. Does that mean the programme makers have embraced accuracy and realism? Not really.

One of the most irksome, albiet minor inconsistencies was the way that the characters kept referring to Brother Tuck who was quite obviously a monk as a 'priest'. There is a vast difference between the two and 12th century British people would have known this.

Format: DVD
I love Robin Hood and always have since like, series 1. So I was really excited for this series (even if Marian, Djaq and Will were missing)
I've gotta say that Tuck and Kate were a bit pointless in my opinion, and Kate got slightly annoying by the end with the crying and whinging, and more since Robin shouldn't really have gone on about always loving Marian just to move on to Kate that quickly.
But, as with other reviewers, I have to say Gisborne completely carried this whole series, and even though I've always liked his character, by the end I was practically in love (lol) and watching the show was mainly through seeing his character progress. I have to say seeing the Sheriff and Gisbornes fight cracks me up every time and has to be one of the best fight scene's I've ever seen, and the moment he has with Meg is another one of the best parts of any of the series' so far.
The last episodes were really good too (I cried) and even though I think the connection between Robin and Gisborne was left a little too late for the explaination, it was a nice... twist? Sort of twist anyway. I gotta say though, Keith Allen wasn't in it enough (he made me laugh a lot) and Prince John was pretty funny, even if very very camp and basically the lion from the Disney film in human form.
Anyway, I say 5 stars for not just this, but all the series together. Its a really great programme, and its one of those light hearted, feel good Saturday night TV shows that the BBC should make more of (since this is now done; there's only Doctor Who and Tennant's leaving and Merlin - which is okay, but not as good as RH really) So yeah... =] Pretty good overall.

I have to admit my rating is a little bit biased as I would give anything with the gorgeous Richard Armitage in it 5 stars. The man is sex on legs and I could write this whole review about his smile, his voice, the black leather clothes, the fact that he plays a baddie who could be good if he wanted to...You get the idea.
However I have been a fan of Robin Hood since the very first episode, even before I set eyes on gorgeous Guy of Gisborne, and I couldn't wait for the third series to start. Historically accurate it ain't, and it could have been written better, but it has always been enjoyable Saturday evening TV.
I don't think this series is as good as the previous two and the new characters haven't brought much to it; Tuck is neither fat nor funny, and I found Kate to be a mildly annoying Marian wannabe. I do like Isabella and the unhinged Prince John though. Unfortunately the brilliant Keith Allen as the Sheriff is missing for most of the series, but that just makes his reappearance in the finale even more explosive (no pun intended).
Robin Hood has always been a bit predictable - someone in Nottingham is causing trouble, Robin and co try to help the villagers, one of the outlaws gets captured, Robin and co manage to rescue them in the nick of time, and everyone lives to fight another day. That all changes at the end of this series though.
It's been known for a while that Jonas Armstrong would hang up his bow and arrow at the end of series three, so the ending is not entirely unexpected, although it is still very emotional. A fourth series may be in the pipeline, but I think the BBC should quit while they're ahead, considering that the majority of characters have been blown up, stabbed, or poisoned, and only a handful of the original cast members remain.
This series may not have been as good as the previous two, but it is still worth a look at, especially the brilliant final episode.
