The same kind of following as King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. These legends were also based on fact….a minor nobleman (but it’s 30 some odd years since I did that research)

Sharon, a well written and informative post. Thank you.

Janet T – I too was rather impressed with Armitage’s version of Guy of Gibsorne. Enough to warrant writing a trilogy about the man and taking him far from the original canon.

Everybody needs a hero and ‘Robin Hood’ has filled that need for a very long time! I, for one, grew up believing in him and his ‘values’. Richard Greene will always be the best RH for me.

Enjoyed reading this, Sharon. I had been looking up the history of Robin Hood myself as I have recently been avidly watching the BBC series of Robin Hood. I was having a fun marathon and loved Richard Armitage as Sir Guy. Thank you for sharing your info.




Sorry, I’d posted my comment before I’d finished. Actually, it was broadcast on Saturday night, not last night. I was going on to say that I wouldn’t give any more details because, to quote River Song from several previous series of Doctor Who, “Spoilers!”


And now, to add to that fan fiction, we have the latest episode of Doctor Who, broadcast last night here in the UK. It’s called “Robot of Sherwood”!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
