The Doctor squares off against Robin Hood in new Robot of Sherwood trailer

We also get a good look at Ben Miller's Sheriff of Nottingham in the first proper trailer for Mark Gatiss's romp


“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
