Series 2

ROBIN HOOD

Robin Hood

Robin’s character seemed to change little going into the second series. Remaining an outlaw, he continued to fight for justice but identifying a greater threat, he begins to fight for King and country. With a shift in who he is fighting for, Robin at times has to be reminded not to completely forget about the dependency the poor have on him.

Having now finally won back Marian’s heart, it becomes Robin’s dream for Marian to join him in the forest where they can fight for England together, side by side. However Marian’s reluctance to do so certainly saddens Robin and creates a further challenge for Robin to juggle. Not only does he have to save the poor, but save the King and England; not only does he want Marian to be with him, but he must protect her and come to terms with the fact that being an outlaw makes it difficult for them to truly be happy.

 

ROBIN HOOD

Much

Much returns as loyal as ever. Clearly expressing his undying love for Robin and his cause, Much’s loyalty continues to go unnoticed, often taken for granted.

Often providing comic relief, Much creates a warm atmosphere for the outlaws in these dark times. Now with a new outlaw camp, Much is happy to take responsibility as cook – even if that means his meals don’t always go down well!

However Much’s character is not always one to be poked fun at. There is undoubtedly a sad song to be sung about the constant nature that Much is taken for granted. Although he is always there for Robin, Robin never seems to be there for him. With Robin getting ever closer to Marian, it seems that Much is left abandoned. He has no choice but to cope with all that he has been through with Robin, especially the horrors in the Holy Land, on his own.

There is no doubt that Much remains one of the only characters who has the ability to make you laugh and cry.

 

ROBIN HOOD

Allan A Dale

‘What if he’s stuck?’

Allan’s character takes a sharp turn in this series. It is fair to say that he is one of the most developed characters out of all the outlaws. Allan continues to be tricky and remains a sharp witted character, providing a valuable asset to the outlaws.

However Allan grows ever frustrated with the few benefits of being an outlaw. Blaming Robin for always being the one to take the glory, Allan attempts to find his perks of being a tricky outlaw. However his wits soon get the better for him and Allan’s character suffers a dark turn. Torn between the battle of good and evil, Allan must pick a side before it is too late.

Little John

Having now said goodbye to his family, John has little to lose, providing an ever loyal service to Robin and the gang. His brute strength continues to come in handy however his big heart can also be his weakness. Although John is loyal to Robin, he occasionally disagrees with Robin’s priority of the King and country over the ordinary people.

However Little John’s heart is always in the right place and he will forever listen to those who need him.

 

ROBIN HOOD

Djaq

Djaq returns as feisty as ever, providing essential medicinal knowledge for the gang. With a more feminine look, Djaq harnesses this to her advantage.
