The True story of what happened in Sherwood Forest, conceived and starring Tony Robinson.
Originally broadcast in 1994, this 2-disc set features all seven episodes plus another exclusively commissioned booklet written by Tony Robinson and illustrated by Paul Cemmick.
Like bird flu, Jade Goody and the M4/M25 interchange, Maid Marian is a British icon. In this, the final series of the muddy extravaganza that is Maid Marian and her Merry Men, Rabies grows wings, Robin turns nasty and the peasants celebrate High Forks night, "Remember! Remember! the 27th of April." To quote Robin Hood himself, this series is "as funny as Russell the Abbot."
Maid Marian and her Merry Men was consistently number 1 in the children's TV ratings throughout its four series, partly because it was popular with children of all ages, but also because it became "must see" viewing for students and young adults. It was popular with the critics too, winning a Bafta, an RTS Award and the International Prix Jeunesse. This perfectly conceived historical farce is witty, warm and stylish. An excellent cast and faultless writing has drawn comparisons to Blackadder, Red Dwarf, and The Young Ones. It is one of those rare programmes made for and enjoyed by both children and adults and has secured a huge fan-base in the seventeen years since the first series was first transmitted.
