Trivia

Written and made as the two part second series premiere, this was held back until the bank holiday and shown as a double length episode/TVM in a bid for higher ratings. The story of this episode comes first in the second series novelisation 'Robin of Sherwood and the Hounds of Lucifer' and the original order was restored for the Blu-ray release of the complete series. Some small plot points in the episode demonstrate its original placing. Marion talks of her father as being dead, despite discovering in 'The Prophecy' (which was intended to have been shown later) that he was secretly imprisoned and only reported dead. See more »
