Product description

Product Description

Episodes 1 to 6 from the third series of the popular TV show based on the legendary outlaw. In 'Herne's Son (Parts 1 and 2)' the Merry Men have disbanded following the death of the original Robin of Loxley; however, when he learns that Marion has been abducted by Lord Owen of Clun, young Robert of Huntingdon (Jason Connery) dons the late Robin's trademark hood and, with the encouragement of Herne the Hunter, sets about regrouping Robin's band. 'The Power of Albion' sees Robert call upon Marion's medical skills when he is wounded during a raid. 'The Inheritance' has young Isadora ask Robert 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' finds the Sheriff's position filled by Philip Mark (Lewis Collins), the infamous Butcher of Lincoln, who immediately sets about capturing Robin and his men. Finally, in 'The Cross of St Ciricus', Robert discovers a hidden connection between himself and the victim of a recent robbery.

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
