  • For somone who grew up in Sherwood Forset, surrounded by the legend of Robin Hood this was a delighful way to bring the 12th century hero into the 21st century.

    I grew up in the centre of Sherwood forest and thus was surrounded by the legend of Robin Hood and his Merry men. Learning that a new, modern, Robin Hood was to come out I greatly looked forward to it. it didnt let me down.

    The plot lines were clear, precise and and well written. The characters were rounded and well played, and the setts and locations were beautifully designed and used. The onscreen chemistry bettween maid marian (Lucy Grifiths) and Robin Hood (Jonas Armstrong) was just what was needed for the main couple. Much the miller's son, was involved after being ignored for a long time in the tales. Allan A Dale, Little John, Will Scarlet are all given the weight in the story they deserve.

    The largest fault i can find with the series is the forest used for sherwood forest. However only someone who grew up in Sherwood can tell that the forest used is nothing like sherwood at all. The surroundings of nottingham castle are a little better but still wrong wrong for that particular part of england. All in all i am greatly looking orwards to the rest of the series, to see how Robin goes on against the sherrif.
