Doctor Who: "Robot of Sherwood" *Hq Ws Web Rip*
Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) insists that the Doctor take her to meet Robin Hood, despite the Doctor's claims that Robin Hood is only a legend. When the TARDIS lands in medieval England, they are met by a man who claims he is Robin Hood. Later, it is revealed that sheriff of Nottingham is assisted by a small army of robots and The Doctor allows the robots capture him, Robin and Clara so he can learn more about the Sheriff's plans. The captives sit in a filthy dungeons seated against posts, bound side by side with chains and manacles. The Doctor and Robin, in trying to come up with an escape plan, bicker to a point where Clara's admonishments make her seem their leader by those watching, and she is taken to meet the Sheriff herself. Clara is able to manipulate the Sheriff into revealing his plot: he witnessed a spaceship crash and has been trying to repair it by collecting all the gold in the nearby land, so that he can use it to travel to London and take over the kingdom.
*The new Doctor is a certainly a throwback to the first original Doctor, the crusty irascible grandfather figure portrayed by William Hartnell. I love it.*
