Maid Marian's Arrest, Trial and Outcome
21 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

To say that this begins with a fit of comic rage from Friar Tuck might suggest that this is going to be a light-hearted episode. In fact, it's a dark tale, as Maid Marian is framed for a murder that she didn't commit. During the legal proceedings, she opts for trial by battle, overlooking the fact that Robin has been injured in combat. The outlook seems pretty hopeless. But can she get out of that? This gives an interesting insight into the legal system of the time and also shows that there are even more evil people about than the Sheriff, whose regard for Marian makes him a very reluctant participant in the process--though he can't resist some opportunistic moments. Look out for a young Nicholas Parsons, who plays the nice but wimpish Sir Walter.
