"We are Robin Hood?"

current music: Eliza Carthy: Whole


I didn't follow series two of Robin Hood very closely, but this story confirms all my suspicions about the introduction of the "We are Robin Hood" team bonding cry in the last series. The path to the lead's departure was indeed being made ready.

Well, there is precedent with Robin of Sherwood.

Yes, though having started with the nobleman Robin Hood here, it would be time for the peasant; and they couldn't use the Locksley/Huntingdon divide here in the same way.

As an aside, I was on a JOLF senior manager course last week. It was one of these skills courses where they put you in role-plays of real work situations to see how you handle them. One of the actors was Paul Rainbow / Duggan, who according to IMDB was 'Tom the Fletcher' in Ropbin of Sherwood.

I see that he was there at the beginning, in 'Robin Hood and the Sorceror'. He seems to have been steadily in work, too.

We actually looked him up because we were convinced as a group that he must have played a bent cop in The Bill. He just looked the part.

Turns out he has been in The Bill and he was a bent cop in the series that surely marked the pinnacle of
Verity Lambert's career* .




* El Dorado. What else could I be referring to?

I think I was just sick a little in my mouth when you mentioned the bonding cry. OK, my fault for clicking on it, but I thought you meant *spoiler*-sensitive, not sensitive of disposition.

On the plus side, with the lead gone, I might even start watching it again. As long as his promise never to return is signed in triplicate and blood.

If there is a series without Jonas Armstrong, it won't be screened until 2010...
