BBC Series Robin Hood

I simply adore the BBC series about Robin Hood, which took place in the 1980s. The series starred Michael Praed and featured Judi Trott as Marion, and Nickolas Grace as the Sherrif of Nottingham. The writing here was superb and the costuming was of course quite nice too. Music was supplied by Clannad who created the perfect atmosphere for the series.

This Robin Hood was a very "pagan" man, with direct roots to Herne the Hunter. He was on a sacred quest to protect the sword of Albion and to keep the people of England safe from the Norman invaders. There is a lot more depth here than you find in typical Robin Hood series stories.

I admit that once it turned into a blonde robin hood, and "things went on as before", it bothered me!
