An agreeable piece of hokum for Hallowe'en, in which Robin, Marian and a group of the Merrie Men go to Thorkil Castle, partly to exercise their right to cakes and ale at that time of year and partly to check out reports of a murdering ghost, which they appear to encounter about halfway through the episode. But is all as it seems? A mystery is solved with the help of a deaf mute using sign language. The Sheriff, Little John and Friar Tuck are all absent from this episode, meaning that some minor characters, such as Derwent, can be featured more prominently than usual. Look out for Barbara Mullen playing an aristocrat of latent evil, in the days long before she progressed to serving the tea at Arden House in Dr Finlay's Casebook.
