Did You Know?


When Guy and robin are fighting in the forest, Guy denounces King Richard I (Richard the Lionheart) as a terrible ruler who fought other people's wars rather than take care of his own people. This is actually a very true statement. During Richard's ten year reign, he spent only six months in England. Even though he was born in Oxford, he spoke only French, seeing no need to learn English. He saw England largely as a place that could finance his conquests and crusades. Thus, Guy's hatred and distrust of the king are understandable, a sentiment that was shared by many real citizens of the time. See more »


When Much unties Robin, you can see that his hands are not actually tied up, but he is holding them up and has them looped over the rope. See more »


Marian: You leave me little choice.
Guy of Gisborne: I thought you'd already made your choice.

The best in the series so far!
27 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode was by far the best in the series so far - it was all-action, and we finally see Robin Hood fight in the Crusades - many people seem to think that he looks like someone plucked from behind a till at Netto. Robin Hood is no longer a softy - he actually displays his true colours in this episode - and while it isn't exactly gritty, it is more furious and realistic than any other episodes. Rather than just mindless slicing-and-dicing this time - this episode is actually intelligent and shocking - the star of the show was easily the tattoo that the whole thing revolved around. The reason why this is the best episode so far is because it is everything Robin Hood should aspire to

  • though not a great deal changes by the end of the show, it is a

worthy addition to a slightly sub-par series, and after the rather disappointing "Brothers in Arms", this shows that Robin Hood might be on the rise. Series-best performances from Guy of Gisborne and Robin. This episode shows true corruption, friendship and care in the group of outlaws, as well as being a story of revenge and betrayal. This is what makes it far better than any Robin Hood episode yet.

Could this frankly disappointing series be on the rise?
