By Andrew Orton, foreword by producer Esta Charkham
‘In the days of the Lion spawned of the Devil’s Brood, the Hooded Man shall come to the forest. There he will meet Herne the Hunter, Lord of the Trees, and be his son and do his bidding. The Powers of Light and Darkness shall be strong within him. And the guilty shall tremble.’
With its distinctive mixture of history and mythology, Robin of Sherwood was an innovative treatment of the Robin Hood legend. Broadcast on ITV between 1984 and 1986, the series has been a major influence on later versions of the Robin Hood story.
Now for the first time, a guide to the series in two volumes, from its beginnings in fifteenth century ballads of Robin Hood to its modern tale of a band of guerrillas striking from their forest hideout.
Hooded Man Volume One takes a fresh look at each episode starring Michael Praed. It explores the production of the first two series and the legends, literature and history that influenced them. On the way you’ll find new trivia, goofs, quotes and translations, a comprehensive atlas of filming locations and the full story of the creation of the series.
Hooded Man is an essential guide for every true fan of the series, detailing everything you might have missed along the way… because nothing is ever forgotten.
