My latest drawings are from the second series of BBC TV show, Robin Hood. I used to love this show, and then they killed off Marian at the end of the second series.
These drawings are set at the beginning and the end of the series. The first is from the first episode. After leaving Guy at the alter and showing support for King Richard, the Sheriff and Guy are angry with Marian and her father and Guy is sent to collect them and bring them to the castle. He makes Marian beg for him not to burn down the house, but even that won’t stop him. The house in burnt, Marian and her father are left homeless and taken to the castle under house arrest.
The second is from episode 11. Guy discovers that Marian is the Night watchman and she is arrested and taken to the castle to await execution. She tries to escape but the attempt is unsuccessful. Guy and Marian then argue, as when the Sheriff returns, she is to be executed, to which she responds, ‘Did you think I would just sit here and wait to be executed?’
