Storyline

The beautiful Jennet of Elsdon rejects the amorous advances of the Sheriff's steward, Sir Guy of Gisburne, and is as a consequence accused of witchcraft by Sir Guy and imprisoned in the Nottingham Castle dungeons together with her husband. The Sheriff, however, realises that Jennet has been set up by his very "susceptible" steward and thus gives Jennet the opportunity to save her and her husband's lives in return for a "small favour". This is an offer that Jennet just cannot refuse... Written by Anonymous

A nice episode, well spent 50 minutes...
29 May 2006 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

The witch of Elsdon has the same problems as most episodes in the first season of most series.

1 It is an episode that includes an episode villain (kind of). 2 It doesn't bring the plot of the series forward. 3 The main characters doesn't really develop.

Though this is one of the weaker episodes, it is still highly enjoyable and I definitively recommend not to miss this episode.

However as an episode with characters the viewer knows and loves it kind of works neatly. The plot is about a woman condemned for witchcraft forced to work for the sheriff of Nottingham to capture Robin and his merry men. She works as a threat in need of help.

The most memorable moment of this episode is: When Friar Tuck realizes that Gisburne is still tied with his head under the water.

The two characters that shine through in this episode are Marion and Will Scarlett. Marion is played by Judi Trott, a great actress that was very young at the time. In this episode she shows that she is annoyed that she is left behind when the rest is out at adventures. This episode is the beginning of Marions journey towards a heroine.

Will Scarlett is played by Ray Winstone, a brilliant British actor. In this episode he gets romantically interested in the antagonist. He gets to portray a more emotional side of Will in this episode.
