Episode Summary

The Wise Woman of Worksop
The gang are sleep deprived, and need to be rested for their ambushes; in desparation, Barrington goes to Gladys and is given her father's recipe, Sleepy-Cake, but the boys ignore the instructions and are left with some embarrassing side effects - Barrington loses his hair, Rabies looks like Paul McCartney, and Robin's nose gets much bigger, the antidote for which is known only to Gladys' father, who is not present. Meanwhile at the castle, King John is fed up with his prisoners, and orders their release, but accustomed to their cells, the prisoners refuse to leave. The Sheriff decides to trick the Merry Men into rescuing the prisoners by getting Guy to pretend he is lacksadasiacal with the location of the castle key; when they enter the castle, they leave with the prisoners, while Marian and Robin are captured. The prisoners are horrified to get back to Worksop, and a brawl ensues, when Barrington discovers that one of the men they have rescued is in fact Gladys' father. He promises to return them to the castle in exchange for the antidote to the Sleepy-Cake side-effects. The men use their comical appearances to pretend they are pixies, and present Guy with another Sleepy-Cake as reward for revealing the location of the key. He returns to the castle with it, and the baddies all fall asleep. The old prisoners are swapped with Marian and Robin, who exchange clothes to trick the Sheriff into thinking he has been asleep for years. Finally, everybody uses the antidote to get back to normal - except for Robin who uses it incorrectly and turns into a dog as a result.moreless
