A benchmark of quality television drama in the 1980s and arguably the definitive interpretation of the Robin Hood legend, this BAFTA-winning series is presented here for the first time in High Definition.
Jason Connery stars as Robin Hood in Richard Carpenter's influential and highly acclaimed re-working of the classic myth. Combining equal parts high drama, historical accuracy and atmospheric mysticism, Carpenter's reboot pitched a band of not-so-Merry Men against a decidedly brutal and waspish Sheriff of Nottingham. With a haunting theme from Clannad, strong scripts and outstanding performances from Ray Winstone, Clive Mantle, Judi Trott and Nickolas Grace, to name a few, Robin of Sherwood was, and remains, a worldwide hit. With new HD transfers taken from the original film elements, the third and final series is presented here at a quality level never previously seen.

When it was announced that Michael Praed would leave the series to join the cast of Dynasty, I was beside myself. I loved Michael's interpretation of Robin and still believe to this day that his is the best. I was sure at the time that series 2 would be the last. When series 3 came along and Jason Connery, i breathed a sigh of relief as they had found another wonderful Robin. He carried on the role of Robin so well, that the transition was seamless. He fitted right in with the rest of the cast and it was business as usual. Season 3 then continued for 13 action packed episodes at the same high standard of writing,directing,acting and production values as before. Even though Michael had gone, Jason made the role his own just as Michael had before. It was strange at first but didn't take long to warm to Jason. Looking back now, I think that these two actors are the best Robin Hood's ever. All the episodes have stood the test of time. The Blu-Ray of the final season is top quality as well, with much improved picture and sound over its DVD counter part. All the extras from the DVD release are all here plus some new ones. The Blu-Ray presentations are the definitive Robin of Sherwood releases and worth every penny.
