The lame donkey which is BBC One’s Robin Hood continues its slow stumble towards the end of another series with no word yet on the prospects of a third.
The show now seems to have dropped almost any pretence of a historical setting – at the conclusion of another yawnsome ‘adventure’ to end with Robin not killing the Sheriff and fleeing the castle Marion was seen wearing a very modern trouser suit.
Last week the BBC teased us with an episode featuring some decent performances. Now, in most cases it’d be difficult to permanently cast a small yellow bear in a drama but in this case Pudsey’s casting wouldn’t be any more unbelievable than the rest of the show.
Moving from a ridiculous excuse for drama to the real thing, news that the BBC has secured the rights to remake Terry Nation’s Survivors has been cautiously welcomed by fans of the original series.
