The ITV series Robin of Sherwood is generally considered to have been among the greatest adaptations of the legend, with its fantastic set of characters both traditional and new, as well as its twisting, turning, turbulent plot lines. This audiobook is one of an excellent range that adds even more depth to the Robin Hood universe, with each episode taking place close to the timeframe of the original TV show and featuring the characters we all know and love.
In this instalment – set between the third and fourth season of the TV series – we find the Merry Men without a proper leader, as Robin – after losing Marion to Holy Orders – spends his waking hours in an increasingly drunken state.
Abbot Hugo meanwhile has cleaned out the family coffers and secured a release for his brother, the sheriff, from King John’s prisons. This is granted on one condition – the sheriff pays a fine for every month that goes by without the capture of Robin Hood. Furthermore, Marion is harbouring a secret which may lead to the capture of Robin, a secret she isn’t aware the sheriff knows about as he plots his revenge on the outlaws….
