Episode Guide

Son of Robin Hood

Set after the demise of Nottingham's heroic outlaw, responsibility for the welfare of the poor and the security of the kingdom has shifted to the remnants of Robin Hood's band of followers. But their efforts are undermined when they elect a well-meaning imposter as their new chief.

The merry men therefore send for their late leader's son, Deering Hood, who - much to everyone's surprise - turns out to be a woman (June Laverick). However, despite their expectations of her gender, she proves to be a worthy successor to her father.

And that's just as well as the Crown is under serious threat...
