Clara looks fab!!
Ben Miller looks so much like the Master in this role! Anthony Ainley mixed with Jonathan Pryce.
Peter's shirt in the first two pics are wrong.... but oh well:D
Clara looks like a ghost in that so-called poster. They may have wanted to make it look like an old painting but in the end it's just sort of blurry and strange.
Clara is basically maid marian, isn't it? I always wondered what if the doctor or the companions turned out to be a character in legend or folklore would turn out, should be interesting.
I'm so excited
Hmmmmmm I don't hold out high hopes for this episode. Could be the series clunker, there always is one minimum.
Could be wrong though and I hope I am, just have to wait and see.
Also, I should mention that the guy in the third pic in the top row is Mark Gatiss' real-life partner Ian Hallard :-)
Great pics! I love the way the Doctor looks at that arrow, angry like hell (Did he dare to shoot at my TARDIS?!).
And no clothes with bowties or Dalek eyes for Clara just an equally stunning dress (Jenna does look great in red -remember the Snowmen).
This episode looks amazing! Jenna is stunning! Peter is going to be changing his shirts like Matt changed his waistcoats every episode :D
This episode is looking better and better.
So this is what happened to Lester after he got trapped on the other side of that anomaly ;)
golly what a day
Looks like fun...I wonder if it will be a 'shrek' type robin hood *hums song*
Great pics very rich looking and yes I agree Clara looks amazing in that red dress I bet she had fun dressing up.
The robot's face looks similar to the Sandminer-robots in Robots of Death, which is yet another thing that makes the current season feel so Classic-y. :)
these promo pictures look good i hope the robot is the black knight because in the tales the black knight is undefeatable and it would make sense if it were a robot. (Just one more point from the trailers Capaldi said Robin Hood dosen't exist he's a myth.. but he said that about the Pandorica as well and it was real i even think there was one with the loch ness monster, well more Zygon ship thingymajigy..)
Looking at these promo pictures (though granted this particular one looks very cut and paste), I'm really looking forward to seeing the ones for the future episodes, especially Flatline, because hopefully it'll be the closest we get to an "Adventures of Clara Oswald" poster :-)
this robin hood macho or not?
In this week's episode of "Doctor Who", the Doctor faces his toughest enemy yet: bad Photoshopping...
I'm not jealous of Tom Riley....... not at all! :| XD This episode looks like good fun and interesting so I'm really looking forward to it. Jenna looks amazing! That costume is stunning. She's so beautiful, she just fits any era, and would look beautiful in anything! :)
Up against Clara Oswald, I almost feel sorry for the Sheriff of Nottingham :-)
If I see or hear anything else about this episode before Saturday my head will implode. So exciting!
Honestly this episode really looks like it could be Gatiss' best. It'll be great to see another side to 12's Doctor and have a bit of fun :P
And although I miss the movie posters from last year, I much prefer the look of the promo pictures for this series, they've all been really beautiful :)
Soooooo happy that Ben Miller is in Doctor Who at last. He's looking great as the Sheriff! :D
Some absolutely gorgeous pictures!
Was it the custom for men to have such long hair in those days?
@MyHatIsOnFire I was thinking exactly the same thing.
@The Last Son of Gallifrey Well let's not forget that according to Seventh Doctor story 'Battlefield' (filmed very close to my home town :D ) , the Doctor is in fact Merlin. Although, since in that story he is following clues left by his future self, we still haven't seen him inherit the name!
@You've not met Danny Pink? Bit of a lady killer I hope he gives us a tune in the episode!
@JolomontheCube I'm pretty sure I'll have one of the songs from the Disney version stuck in my head while I'm watching, or at least before/after. I wonder if they'll reference any of the films at all? Then again the only other one I've seen is the Robin Hood: Men in Tights, so I probably won't get it anyway.
(Well what do you know, I've already got Phony King of England in my head)
@Ladydetemps So, when an ogre in the bush grabs a lady by the tush
That's bad, that's bad, that's bad, that's bad...
@Ladydetemps Or the classic Robin Hood song from the 1950? TV show...
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, Riding through the glen
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, With his band of men
Feared by the bad, Loved by the good
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, Robin Hood
@Captain Grumpy Maybe when the Black Knight gets defeated it'll go all Monty Python on them "Tis but a scratch!"
@The Lazy Cat Of Sherwood Love the icon btw!
It seems to me Clara has been a bit left out in these poster like pictures so far (which are nowhere near as amazing as the ones we got last year).
@Deus_Ex_Machina nice one :-p
@LGwalchmai95 we're all but jealous of that lucky guy :-)
@LGwalchmai95 She truly is the impossible girl. Impossibly beautiful :P
@Planet of the Deaf Never try and control a control freak
@Planet of the Deaf yep he's totally ####ed when he messes with the impossible girl.
@Planet of the Deaf Poor guy.
It's the traditional look for Robin Hood.
Plus if you're an outlaw hiding in Sherwood Forest, your hair length is the least of your worries.
@Calebxy If Wikipedia is to be trusted, "in the 11th century, shortened tunics became popular as did shorter hair styles and beard lengths."
@supermoff of Sherwood @Ladydetemps Then clara just whacks him one...lol!
@Planet of the Deaf @Ladydetemps Not the men in tights song then? ;)
@tombaker64 @Captain Grumpy That's king arthur not robin hood though. lol
Why thankyou! As you can see my photoshop skills aren't the best :-P
@ Notsosmartguy @LGwalchmai95 Lucky Pink, eh
@The Administrator I'm pretty sure in the earliest ballads Robin actually had a house.
@The Administrator your not gonna be popping to the hairdressers in the forest.
@Calebxy The long hair tradition was widespread among English and French men in the 11th and 12th centuries, though it was considered, mostly because of endorsement of the Roman Catholic Church, acceptable for men also to have shorter hair as well. The tradition was largely brought about by monarchs who rejected the shorter hairstyle, causing the people to follow.
More like lucky Rob Stark
@Calebxy @The Administrator I've heard the ballad about his birth not heard the one about house but where is one called brown adam which has similarity in which he builds house in the woods but has to return to a castle to save his love from a false knight.
@sontaran17 @Calebxy What about in the 14th century?
@sontaran17 @Calebxy But which century is it supposed to be? (I've been doing some reserch into the clothing of the time and it seems to be generic hollywood medieval rather than anything authentic. for one thing clara should have a headcovering of some kind....and her dress should be spiral not cross laced and it should be hand sewn eyelets not metal ones and....well I could go on)
@Ladydetemps @Calebxy @The Administrator I've not heard of that one, but in The Little Geste of Robin Hood (which is not of the three earliest ballads), he has a house - probably in Hooton Pagnell. It must be a fairly big house too, because it stores all the clothing of the 143 Merry Men. Also, Much and Little John refer to Robin as 'Master', implying that they are his actual servants (which suggests that he was actually fairly rich - and the ballad explicitly says that he was a yeoman, which was a relatively high social status).
@Calebxy @sontaran17 as I said I think its your tv/hollywood medieval-ish rather than anything accurate.
@Ladydetemps @sontaran17 @Calebxy I think the trailer or synopsis said 11th century (so 1000s).
@Calebxy @Ladydetemps @The Administrator this is the birth of robin hood http:// mainlynorfolk.info/bellowhead/songs/thebirthofrobinhood.html
I think there reference to the red gown makes me think of clara's dress.
@Ladydetemps @Calebxy @The Administrator *which is one of the three earliest ballads
@The Finn @Ladydetemps @sontaran17 @Calebxy Really? The ballads themselves (the earliest three, at least) were almost definitely supposed to have been set in the 1320s...
@Ladydetemps @Calebxy @The Administrator Thanks.
@Calebxy @The Finn @Ladydetemps @sontaran17 The earliest ballads have it during "king Edward's reign" without specifying whether it's Edward I,II, or III. So around then, yes. but most of the later ballads (and more recent iterations of the story) place it during the crusades, so 11th or 12th century.
@They're all my favorite Doctor, even in Sherwood @Calebxy @The Finn @Ladydetemps @sontaran17 Sure, they don't specify, but certain narrative points make it clear that it could only have happened during King Edward II's reign (the main one being that the king spends a fortnight at Nottingham, which Edward II really did in 1323).
