Starring: Jonas Armstrong, Lucy Griffiths, Richard Armitage and Keith Allen.
My Rating: 9.5/10
Seeing the injustices of his people Robin refuses to do the Sheriff's bidding and is stripped of his title and lands and chooses to live in the forest as an outlaw. With the help of some wonderful characters including: Will Scarlett (Harry Lloyd), Allan A Dale (Joe Armstrong) , Little John (Gordon Kennedy) and Roy (William Beck), Robin embarks on a life full of danger as he battles against the Sheriff and Sir Guy of Gisborne.
One thing that Robin has up on the Sheriff and Guy is his secret informer and ally, the beautiful Lady Marian (Lucy Griffiths).

I am not much of a TV person but when I saw a small clip from this series I was hooked and within the week I had my own copy of the first series. I thought the first episode was a little slow and although it sets the story and introduces the characters it really isn't a reflection of the entire series. This is my favourite re-telling of the legend of Robin Hood, which has been a beloved story of mine since I was a little girl.
