Sheer Genius
29 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

Until the beeb started repeating this recently I'd forgotten how good it was. Maid Marion was the original girl power show, well it was for me anyway. Funny, twisted and brilliant cast of supporting actors plus Tony Robinson make it what it is. Watch it!
