Sir Tony Robinson
4 August 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Superbly written, wonderfully acted, Brilliantly directed and who wrote those hilarious songs?

I loved this series when I was younger. It was unique, highly entertaining and amusing for all who watched, parents and children alike could and would enjoy. An interesting spin on the Robin Hood classics, made into a children's TV show by the BBC and written by Tony Robinson where by Maid Marrian was the principal leader and Robin Hood was bumbling buffoon!

The characters were rich and well thought out, the lines were down right side splitting at times. I really do hope they bring this one out on DVD and soon. As far as I'm concerned Tony Robinson should be knighted for services to children's TV for this awesome show!
