    Well Dr Who’s autumn saturday night replacement has begun and on watching the first episode yesterday i was beginning to wonder if it wasn’t written by one of the Dr Who writers as there was quite a lot of naff dialogue which resembled some of the poorer Who and one of the characters calls herself ‘Rose’.

    Well I think its heavily written by Paul Cornell, however Kingdom you are being mightily unfair.

    THat was by far and away one of the best episodes of Robin Hood, with the series taking an interestingly dark turn, an inside man in the band of men and a call to arms that "Robin Hood" is the spirit of England (as was, but no reason why it shouldn’t include modern Britain)

    You should go and watch it again…

    Errr you must be completely off your rocker. I suggest you[/i:5bdco4rk] rewatch it again … particularly that idiotic scene between Much and Alan O’Dale ?? which is presumably suppose to be funny ? witty ? I think is some of the worst dialogue i’ve seen on TV in ages. Actually i did watch it twice ironically because i missed the first 10 minutes first time round and was so amazed at the lack of authenticity even attempted in the production team’s design of clothes, props let alone any level of historical … well accuracy isn’t quite the right word here. Contextual accuracy perhaps?

    I saw ‘Robin the Hooded Man’ for the first time last year … episode one .. and was AMAZED at how good it was .. and suddenly understood why all my mates use to rave about it 20 odd years ago. This production is Robin Hood for the dumbed down generation.

    Despite this – I followed most of the episodes of last year (the better episodes are watchable if you don’t take it too seriously, it doesn’t really work as drama nor as comedy but is considerably more entertaining than Strictly Come Ballroom Disco Dancing) … I&nbsp; probably didn’t miss more than about 2 episodes, and by no streach of the imagination could last week’s faire be classified as the&nbsp; best one to date.&nbsp; <!– s:D –><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/cheesy.gif" alt=":D" title="Cheesy" /><!– s:D –>

    Actually as i was writing this post i was thinking i’d love (if i had the time or inclination) to provide a complete deconstruction of this episode as to why it was pretty awful. Interesting your point about Alan O’Dale’s ‘turning to the dark side. Having watched the first series … i can’t think of any real reason as to why this character should suddenly decide to betray his friends for a bag of gold … and join up with Guy of Gisborne?&nbsp; Bearing in mind we don’t know quite how it’s going to play out yet, if the elements that lead up to him making the decision to betray his friends were carefully planned and laid out well ( i think we did see a selfish side to him in series one) all well and good. But as a plot device that we saw this week it comes across as forced, contrived and actually quite a silly thing for him to do. Besides Gisborne no longer has a hold over him now that he’s free….
