Superb continuation of the definitive version of the Robin Hood legend,
This review is from: Robin Of Sherwood - Series 3 - Part 1 - Episodes 1 To 6  [DVD] (DVD)
After a superb two seasons with Michael Praed at the helm as Robin of Loxley, how do you continue the story when that character is dead? Easy, you do this...
At the end of Season 2, with the outlaws captured and Robin trapped and killed on the hillside, who then is the mysterious hooded man who frees the merry men and appears at the finale to fire his own arrow of tribute into the lake?
We find out. This mysterious figure is revealed to be Robert of Huntingdon, played by Jason Connery, and he can seamlessly fit into the alternative legend of Robin Hood, that of the son of the Earl of Huntingdon, a nobleman.
Connery's blond hair contrasting with the dark hair of Michael Praed tells you that there is a new Hooded Man in Sherwood, and the Sheriff of Nottigham, and Guy of Gisburne are both fearful and angry at the news. So the series begins with the outlaws disbanded, and distrusting of this pretender who tries to rally them together again. Robin of Loxley may be dead, but Herne's Son lives again...
