William Russell (Credited as Russell Enoch) as the Duke of Gloucester in an episode of Robin of Sherwood (1986)
Various screencaps from Richard Carpenter’s Robin of Sherwood (see previous post).
Robin Hood could be returning to the big screen courtesy of Sony, with a series of team-up movies akin to The Avengers…
So I know it’s been a while since I’ve updated this blog. Having multiple blogs makes it hard to really keep up sometimes. I’m hoping to add more content via the ROS facebook groups, but I want to ask if it’s okay for me to link their content first.
I’m also hoping to start working on the Robin of Sherwood meme. Just need to upload the last couple of Jason Connery episodes on my computer.
From Clannad’s atmospheric soundtrack to the 1980s TV series, Robin of Sherwood. This was one of the few of the many adaptations of the legend that drew upon the early ballads, and blended mysticism (occultism, Herne the Hunter) in with its tales of battling the oppressive Norman rule.
For me, it stands as the best televised interpretation of the Robin Hood tale.
Amazing program. Mark Ryan later created the wonderful Greenwood Tarot and the current verision, The Wildwood Tarot.
Guess what finally came in the mail! The new SFX magazine with a 4-page spread on “Robin of Sherwood”!
Pictures from Sherwood Forest National Park from my UK trip including the famous Major Oak (2nd pic).
