the sheriff has a look of the master about him, with that rubbish beard

The archer within me is very mad at these clips (that is not how you fire/hold/HANDLE a bow & arrow) but whatever - the new clip looks really cool :D

Methinks the Sheriff is the titular robot.

The costumes look so unrealistic and so fancy dress, which is unlike Doctor Who. Hope there is a reason for this

Is it bad that I am only looking foreword to this episode for the next time trailer?

I've got the feeling I might rewatch this episode a hundred times just to look at Jenna's amazing dress.

The sheriff would have never made that shot. His bow wasn't full drawn and he was holding it awkwardly.

The second clip reminds me so much of the the Doctor Who book "The Coming Of The Terraphilas" because the prize was the golden arrow.

The second clip kind of gives me the same feeling as the first one. The episode looks like its going to have fun moments and overall be "okay", but I doubt its going to be amazing. That's fine though, there's plenty more episodes to go.

I watched Disney's Robin Hood film yesterday as preparation. I can't help but feel Gatiss did too. Which is only a good thing ;)

Clara is REALLY enjoying herself with Robin Hood there. Forget Danny Pink, perhaps they should have Robin Hood as a male companion instead!

@pinkjaguar12 I have to agree with you. I have to surmise that they decided to do "stage" archery and not spend the money to give the actors actual archery training.

Everything any of the Doctors say ends up on a t-shirt, it seems.

@Antee991166 I think the opposite; I enjoyed both clips immensely and know I'm really going to enjoy the episode.

Oooooh, just realised! Mark Gatiss is doing an AMA (ask me anything) on reddit. Its been on for about an hour, but he might still answer questions!

@ Notsosmartguy If you're talking about Series 9, I'd vote for Marcus Aurelius. (Well, he *is* one of Clara's heroes.) Also wouldn't hurt for him to have a Paternoster adventure with Conan Doyle (played by Martin Freeman, perhaps?). Or The Three Musketeers, along with Cyrano de Bergerac.

@ Notsosmartguy I was going to say King Arthur, but he's already met him in the Classic Series. Still, he could always meet him again, couldn't he?

@ Notsosmartguy  @The Administrator It's amazing; the animation is spectacular, especially for when it was made. I remember watching it countless times when I was younger and then enjoying it just as much now that I'm older.

@Calebxy @ Notsosmartguy   He did, as that particular story establishes a future Doctor will meet him. The Doctor's Wife was going to establish that it was the Eleventh Doctor, but the first bit of the conversation got cut (you can see the remainder where he talks about reattaching King Arthur's head, and Amy Pond confirming it was true.


There's nothing stopping another meeting.
