A benchmark of quality television drama in the 1980s and arguably the definitive interpretation of the Robin Hood legend, this BAFTA-winning series is presented here in its entirety - complete and uncut. Michael Praed and Jason Connery star in Richard Carpenter's influential and highly acclaimed re-working of the classic myth. Combining equal parts high drama, historical accuracy and atmospheric mysticism, Carpenter's reboot pitched a band of not-so-Merry Men against a decidedly brutal and waspish Sheriff of Nottingham. With a haunting theme from Clannad, strong scripts and outstanding performances from Ray Winstone, Clive Mantle, Judi Trott and Nickolas Grace, to name a few, Robin of Sherwood was, and remains, a worldwide hit.

The series however is no mistake, it is fantastic, enthralling & the out-takes the best ever! But come on producers, it is the 21st century, there is NO excuse for dvds of such popular series to not have subtitles.
This series was produced in the 1980s and it was created by Richard Carpenter who earlier had worked on the series Dick Turpin.
Robin of Sherwood is a fabulous series. There are some great original stories and ideas here. And the DVD set brings together all of the episodes from all of the series as well as some good special features.
Robin of Sherwood weaves the legend of Robin Hood together with pagan beliefs that people of the 12th Century would no doubt be more familiar with. Seeking revenge, Robin encounters mystical "Herne the hunter" a sort of spirit protector of nature and the oppressed Saxon folk. A shamanic figure who is believed to be a forest spirit representing the powers of light and goodness, inspiring and protecting the Hooded Man. Herne appears as a man with a Stag's head.
Here Herne appears to Robin as a man wearing a stag's head. He tells him that he has chosen him to be the peoples champion and to be the son of .Herne. He endows Robin with the sword Albion. Robin then becomes "The Hooded Man" also known as Robin in the Hood, and better known as simply Robin Hood.
Lady Marion, Maid Marion of Leaford (Judi Trott), Little John, (Clive Mantle) Will Scarlet, (Ray Winstone) and Friar Tuck, (Phil Rose) are all familiar characters that join Robin. Also in this version we get the wonderful character of "Nasir" (Mark Ryan). A Saracen assassin, who had been captured in Palestine by Baron de Belleme, and brought back to England to work as his henchman.Read more ›
Back to Robin of Sherwood, the first two series with Michael Praed as Robin of Loxley/Sherwood were great because it actually had the main character in the show, whereas in series 3 Jason Connery (son of Sir Sean Connery) was brought in to the show as Robert of Huntingdon who later became the second Robin Hood because Michael Praed left the show after two series. The third (and final) series was good enough to watch, although if I have to be accurate, I would say that it perhaps wasn't quite a patch on the first two. But still, I would highly recommend this series to anyone who is a fan of the Robin Hood legend.
