Product description

Product Description

Three episodes from the third series based on the legendary outlaw. In 'The Inheritance', young Isadora asks Robin (Jason Connery) for his help when she and her father Agrivaine, guardians of a priceless treasure, fall prey to a pair of pillagers. 'The Sheriff of Nottingham' sees the present Sheriff replaced by Philip Mark (Lewis Collins) - 'The Butcher of Lincoln' - who immediately sets about capturing Robin and his men. In 'The Cross of St Ciricus', Robin discovers a hidden connection between himself and the victim of a robbery whom he comes across in the road.

From Amazon.co.uk

When Robin of Loxley transformed into Robert of Huntingdon in the third series of Robin of Sherwood, many viewers were understandably confused. Michael Praed left the series for reasons that never really became apparent while Jason Connery clearly wasn't a replacement chosen for similar looks or performance. Across the 13 episodes of the third series, Connery's choice became slowly apparent. The magical stories frequently dipped into darker territory as much as they aimed for uplifting humour. The new Hood was at ease with both, while reuniting the merry band and ultimately wooing the fair Marion all over again. Connery turned in a very confident embodiment of the character, clearly bonding well with the established team of actors. Guest stars lined up to contribute alongside him. Memorable appearances include those of Richard O'Brien, David Rappaport, Matt Frewer, Patricia Hodge, Ian Ogilvy and Lewis Collins. (It's fascinating to speculate how different things could have been if the close-second casting choice of Neil Morrissey had been pursued.) The strangest aspect of the series, however, is knowing in retrospect that everyone's confidence and merriment was for nothing. Scripts were written in readiness for the fourth series, but then the studio went bankrupt. Cliffhangers therefore remain that will confuse viewers far more than the lead's replacement. --Paul Tonks
