The true story of what happened in Sherwood Forest, uncovered by and starring Tony Robinson MAID MARIAN AND HER MERRY MEN was consistently number 1 in the childrens 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 twenty-seven years since the first series was initially transmitted. Written by and starring Tony Robinson as the Sherriff of Nottingham, Tony has been a regular on our TV screens since he got his big break playing Baldrick in Blackadder. Contained in slim-line packaging with outer slipcase, all four series of Maid Marian and her Merry Men are featured alongside a compendium booklet by the artist Paul Cemmic (who did the graphics for the original series) released on DVD by Eureka Entertainment on 21 November 2016. SPECIAL FEATURES including: Christmas Special Cast Audio Commentaries Maid Marian Karaoke Interactive Game Improvised Sketches by the Cast Photo Gallery Easter Eggs Trailers Compendium booklet by the artist Paul Cemmic REVIEWS: quite possibly the greatest children s television show of all time Review Graveyard High-budget and beautifully cast, it's written and produced with an attitude that appeals to all ages and awarenesses. If you don't like the obvious slapstick, you'll be laughing at the asides and nods to popular culture: for all intents and purposes it works in the same multi-levelled way as The Simpsons - Den of Geek Blackadder for kids... or ChuckleVision for adults - Empire
