The BBC's Robin Hood is a big budget re-imagining of the classic tale, with a unique blend of exhilarating action, wit and romance, all headed by a bright young cast of actors.

Robin Hood delights as he fights the authority of the evil Sheriff of Nottingham with outrageous scams, disguises, tricks and ingenuity, breathtaking archery and incredible swordplay. All the while he romances the heavenly Maid Marian, and champions the poor with his band of merry men!

Starring Keith Allen as the nefarious sheriff and dashing newcomer Jonas Armstrong as the titular hero to the poor, fun for all the family is a given!

In my opinion out of the vast majority of the Robin Hoods out there this is by far the best. It is witty enjoyable and fast paced. It is certainly suitable for all ages. And when aired on TV this reflected in the 7pm airing time.
The casting is just right Robin is supposed to be young he has just returned from the crusades Jonas Armstrong is perfectly suited. Marian (Lucy Griffiths) is the model woman she stands up for what she thinks is right and isn't afraid to put herself in the line of fire so to speak.
The sheriff is suitably horrid and Robin is perfect as the young charming and cheeky rebel. As most BBC shows are good you expect this to be too and you arent disappointed.
Tuck was brilliant and a great diversion from the usual fat drunkard he is usually represented as. But the one downfall is that he was so much like Djaq in the cleverness and chemistry department that is felt like the only reason they'd made him intelligent beyond his time was to fill the gap she left.
My favourite character being Will. I just think he was cast extremely well and he is such a great actor. But that is my personal opinion. There is so many other characters to review.
But you really need to watch this yourself. To experience the brilliance of the whole thing!!
The BBC have tried to give the classic tale of Robin Hood a modern touch with this new dramatisation. All 3 series of this were enjoyable as each other. After each episode it left me wanting more and more. In which I gave in by watching another episode. The Cliff hangers are certainly in the right place and im pretty sure you will feel the same way as I.
The storyline it self as somewhat wondered from the path as the normal story of the legend of Robin Hood but still keeps in character with elements of the normal Robin hood. And certainly the elements that we all know and love. And even though if you find you are disappointed. And somewhat annoyed that it hasnt followed the traditional story. Dont be annoyed!! This storyline is superb. Well thought out and thoroughly enjoyable. It gives a complete new perspective.. A perspective that is just excellent gripping and honourable of the Robin Hood name.
I recommend this profoundly!! 5/5!!!

 Amazing

I have to agree with the other positive review, i have yet to buy all 3 volumes of this first series as i am waiting for the price to drop a little, but i saw all the episodes on bbc and right from the 1st episode i was hooked the storyline was amazing the cast were brilliant and it was a pleasure to watch i would recomend to anyone i think anyone could enjoy it. im looking foward to the second series on bbc this year i hope.

I mean it , it really is ace , great story lines , funny and a very inventive twist on the robin hood tale. I would recommened this to any one who has a good sense of adventure, I garauntee that you will be on the edge of your seat. keith allen is an absoulute marvel,as is jonas armstrong as robin hood in his role. Buy this and it will make a great addition to any dvd collection.

 BBC PC Rubbish

Very disapointed in the series. Some of the acting is very ropey. The best characters are the Guy of Gisborne(who would have made a better Robin Hood) and the Sheriff of Nottingham. Not recommended but it's a classic compared to 'Bonekickers'
