Trivia

After admitting the Sheriff had sent him to kill Robin after threatening his mother, Roy reveals the baby boy they had discovered in the woods was the child of Gisborne and a kitchen girl from Nottingham Castle. He had met the girl, who had told him Gisborne claimed to have taken the child to Kirklees Abbey to be raised there, when in reality he had simply abandoned the child in the woods.

This is a reference to Kirklees Priory, which according to local folklore is believed to have been where the real Robin Hood spent his final days, and is also believed to be his final resting place. See more »

Fun to watch, but nowhere near brilliant.
27 November 2006 | by general-melchettSee all my reviews

I enjoy watching this episode, but it brings out the worst in every aspect of the show - there is no doubt about that. The opening fight scenes are easily the best bit - they do make it fun to watch, but are so awfully primitive, unrealistic and badly-done - did you see how poorly done it was when that guy was axed in the back? The acting when Robin Hood was hit by an arrow was the worst I have ever seen - did Marion even give a damn? Was Robin even in pain? Roy's death was well done - it was probably the most moving part of the whole episode. But that's up against no competition, and aside from that, the episode proved to be rather a limp fish. Better than some - Robin's archery when shooting bread to the villagers was beautifully choreographed and executed - but with the hideous action sequences and lack of any real character, this episode is one to watch if you wish to see the light side of Robin Hood. Fun and a vital point in the series, but not quite brilliant. 6/10
