Did You Know?

The title refers to the legendary English outlaw Robin Hood, who robbed from the rich and gave to the poor while fighting the evil laws and taxes of King John and the Sheriff of Nottingham in the 13th century.See more »
Factual errors: In all exterior shots of the mansion during flashbacks of the murder, the lights in the room don't go out until the crash of the chandelier hitting the floor is heard. The lights would have gone out as soon as the chandelier was shot out of the ceiling.See more »
Olive Snook:Uh, and what type of duty are you in again? Clergy? Tax services?
Lily Charles:Dwight collects and appraises antiques, which I learned right after he told me he's dating my sister.
Vivian Charles:Lily is naturally suspicious of new liaisons, but I felt compelled to come clean about our relationship. Sneaking around is for politicians in bathroom stalls.
Dwight Dixon:Not for a brisk and bucolic autumn-come-winter afternoon on the park.

Will Chuck's secret be exposed?, 1 March 2012
Author: Tweekums from United Kingdom

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This episode sees Dwight Dixon, the old friend of Chuck and Ned's fathers, continue his search for the pocket watch that had supposedly been buried with Chuck. He knows that her grave contained neither the grave nor the watch and now that he is dating Aunt Vivian it is only a matter of time before he realises that Charlotte Charles is the girl he met in The Pie Hole. There is of course a murder to be solved too; this time an aged multimillionaire whose lawyer believes wrote a second will disinheriting his young trophy wife. When asked the victim stated that 'the bellman did it'; the bellman in question being somebody from charity organisation that is led by a man who considers himself a latter day Robin Hood.

The main mystery was fairly light this week although it was fun seeing Ethan Phillips, best known as Neelix from 'Star Trek: Voyager' without his alien make up; if it hadn't been for his distinctive voice I wouldn't have recognised him! The real interest this week was what Dwight Dixon was up to and what he would do when he learnt that Chuck was alive and working at The Pie Hole. There was a great scene between Stephan Root, who plays Dwight, and Swoosie Kurtz who plays Aunt Lily and a surprise when she sneaks into his room and discovers enough weaponry to start a small war! As with many episodes this season there is a cliff hanger ending that will leave the viewer keen to watch the next episode to discover what happens next.
