This all-action Robin Hood is jam-packed with colourful characters, gripping stories and outrageous scams as well as breathtaking archery and incredible swordplay.

Robin of Locksley heads home from the Crusades to find his people starving and brutalized under the tyrannical rule of the new Sheriff. Robin quickly discovers that the only way to reason with this Sheriff is with bow and arrow - even if it means sacrificing his title and his lands and consigning himself to life in the forest.

Along with trusty companion Much, trickster Allan A Dale and passionate Will Scarlett, Robin teams up with forest outlaws Little John and Roy, leading his gang to help Nottingham's poor. His ally in Nottingham is Marian, the sweetheart he left behind when he left for the Crusades.

How long can Marian keep amorous Gisborne at bay, will the Sheriff succeed in cornering Robin Hood, and what will Robin make of the sinister truth behind Gisborne and the Sheriff's secret plotting? The state of England is rotten and Robin and the gang will learn that doing good deeds in Nottingham is a dangerous business indeed...

Christ, that's a great price for a 5 disc Blu-ray...is it 1080p?

...great price with/without the discount... but when you know the adventures of the merry men were pushed aside due to costs/ratings/Jonathan Ross' salary & so on, it sort of takes the edge of wanting to watch (again) knowing there is no official end to the story.

Still, the end of "Robin Hood" on BBC TV made way for "Merlin" & the eventual inclusion of a character played by Michelle Ryan seeing her return to a (recurring) role on our screens... so I cannot complain too much! :)

"Heat" added (and to this deal too).

Is that article (from 7 January 2009) still accurate?

"...The BBC has already announced that Jonas Armstrong is to leave the show at the end of Series 3..."

"'Robin Hood' axed by BBC"

'Robin Hood' axed by BBC

The BBC has announced that it has axed Saturday night drama Robin Hood.

The series, produced by Tiger Aspect, has been plagued with cast departures in recent months. Jonas Armstrong, who plays the titular character, and Richard Armitage were both killed off in the series finale, while Keith Allen had also announced that he would not return if a fourth series was commissioned.

A BBC spokesperson confirmed: "Viewers have enjoyed three fantastic series of Robin Hood but with the death of Robin in last week's finale, we feel that the show has reached its natural conclusion."

Greg Brenman, head of drama at Tiger Aspect, said: "We have been immensely proud to be the most recent custodians of the Robin Hood legend. From the outset it was our ambition to find an exciting and modern way of interpreting our version of the hero and his legendary life.

"We have had a fantastic time creating and producing Robin Hood, working with some of the most talented actors, writers and directors in our industry. We are sad to be saying goodbye to this much-loved project."

Despite beating ITV1's Primeval in the ratings when it returned in March, audience figures slipped to 2.19m for Saturday's finale - the show's lowest ever audience.

You clearly have not watched all 3 series of Robin Hood if you think there is no ending.

I've seen all 3 series and there is most definitely a conclusion/ending to the whole thing at the end of the third series (and a very good one at that IMO). Just wish they would hurry up and release the series 2 and 3 on DVD/Blu-ray.

I don't know where you got that info from about there being no official end to the story? I've seen all 3 series and there is most definitely a conclusion/ending in the third series (and a superb one at that IMO). Just wish they would hurry up and release the remaining two series on DVD/Blu-ray.


I refer you to the article(s) above.

Shooting some/most/all of the main characters without showing if their injuries were fatal or if they do survive (like the conclusion of "Blake's 7") leaves the potential for another series (even if the actors themselves do not wish to continue). It does, though, leave an interpretation of the ending to the viewing audience. If you believe this to superb, & are happy to re-watch (or just buy the three series for your personal collection) on Blu-ray, then that's fine.

Granted, if Robin is dead then his legacy & the legend of his name would live on (as we know), but it is not an end to a story in my opinion. It is a convenient end for the BBC to re-negotiate contracts. Alan may, or may not, have died, and the other so-called “Merry” band of outlaws may all have been killed in scenes after those shown.

Obviously Marion & Guy should not return as doing so would take away credibility from their last moments on screen. However, the show was not centred on their characters so it would be possible for a further series to be commissioned if it has been requested.

Where was it clear I had not watched the programmes?

PS. Is your user name taken from another set of programmes that also had a controversial ending (“The Prisoner”)?
