The Doctor vs Robin Hood? [SPOILER]

PhotoBucket user MikeWinks has kindly uploaded his recent videos and photos of some Doctor Who location work, in which Peter Capaldi’s stunt double is filmed duelling with a man in tights…

[spoiler ]

Apparently dealing with the outlaw with nothing more than a spoon, the Twelfth Doctor’s alternate, more active and easier to insure self seemingly has no problem in dealing with what appears to be a certain infamous outlaw on a log crossing a stream…

Click play to see the fun. Further investigation of MikeWinks’ account will also reveals snaps with Capaldi and Jenna Coleman.

The episode currently known as “Robots of Sherwood” will appear in Doctor Who Series 8, when it is broadcast later this year.

      Is that really a spoon? It looks like the screwdriver to me (hence my original comment).

    Good to see the Doctor using a different weapon from his usual and over-used “magic wand” for a start!

    I can imagine Jon Pertwee or Tom Baker in a scene like that very easily. Looking forward to Series 8 more and more as these spoilers emerge!

    That Robin Hood looks so much like a “storybook” Robin Hood that it makes me wonder if we’re returning to the Land of Fiction.

      Maybe he’s back on Tara?

      • avatar Rick says:

        Or a Westworld style theme park, hence the robots

    • oh god I hope so.

      Spoon versus sword = BOSSERY.

      Hells Bells. I love this show.

    OK, now I can see its a spoon. Bad quality video is bad though.

    It was a few months ago when i said “I want to see bad videos and blurry pictures for us all to speculate on”. I see some wishes come true :-)
