I’m talking about Robin Hood, of course. And Guy of Gisbourne. And the Sheriff and …goodness, when they end a series they like to really end it, don’t they?
Like I wasn’t already shedding a tear at losing Alan the previous week, this final episode was too much, specially coming on top of the news that Primeval wouldn’t be returning for a fourth series – leaving the gang spread all over in different time zones (they’ve got to bring it back, surely?) – I’ve got a family who tease me non-stop you know, if I cry at the telly.
It looks like the Merry Men (and woman) will continue, but will Archer become Robin Hood or will it be the collective “We are Robin Hood” that prevails? Spare a thought for whoever may be in line to replace Keith Allen too – unless they’re going to spring the resurrection plot again. Could they? Would they dare? Would we care, as long as the Sheriff is back on top form?
It was a brave man (or woman) who killed off Guy as well, I hazard a guess he may well have been the reason a lot of women (or men) tuned in. Oh, come on – there’s no way it was just me!
Thank goodness we’ve got Krod Mandoon until Merlin’s back with us. I can’t be doing without my weekly dose of escapism-rooted-in-myth-and-legend-and-Terry Pratchett land. I’m liking the whole Krod-verse very much, it’s familiar but it’s funny. And that works for me.
