“No damsels in distress, no pretty castles, no such thing as Robin Hood,” says the Doctor in a new trailer for Robot of Sherwood – before he is proven very wrong when an arrow just about misses his head.
Yep, the trailer for episode three of Peter Capaldi’s debut series gives us a proper look at Mark Gatiss’s romp through the legend of Robin Hood, played by Da Vinci’s Demons’ Tom Riley, who Clara seems to have taken a liking to. Villain-wise, it also shows off Ben Miller’s dastardly Sheriff of Nottingham in full swashbuckling mode and the eponymous robot. All in all, it looks like a lot of fun.
Watch the trailer below.
Robot of Sherwood is on BBC1 at 7:30pm on Saturday 6th September
