The third series of the BBC’S Robin Hood begins on Saturday 28th March at 1850 GMT. Some new characters will appear amongst the Hungarian glades of Sherwood Forest, including Guy of Gisbourne’s sister, played by Laura Pulver and Joanne Froggatt, who will join the outlaw band as Kate; Robin’s new love interest. There is also the much publicised arrival of David Harewood as Friar Tuck.
This year the show in ‘much darker’ reckons Jonas Armstrong who plays Robin for the last time. How he leaves at the end of the last episode is a tightly kept secret, but there are rumours that the series will continue without him. They have already killed off Marian! So a fourth series? Hmm!
As I have said many times before, I have felt the series has been a big disappointment, considering the multi award winning costume dramas the BBC has achieved in the past. But I will give Jonas and his politically correct group of activists, a third chance.
