Our Merry Men!
Let's just take a moment to be awed by her flawlessness.
I absolutely loved this show when I was little! (Still do actually...) Our holidays consisted of visiting castles and battle re-enactments, meaning I tended to gravitate towards stories that were to do with Medieval times so this show was absolutely perfect. There really are so many things about it that I love. The music was just perfect; to this day I get emotional hearing Marian's Theme. It has that nice mix of embracing the pagan elements but also seeming to have more of a realistic medieval feel than other adaptations have. Ray Winstone as Will Scarlett lead to the realisation that my first baby photo looks eerily like him (maybe one day you will get to experience the horror that is that photo, I don't feel like we know each other well enough yet!). Michael Praed was my favourite Robin, but I feel like they handled the transition to Jason Connery really well. And the line "nothing is forgotten, nothing is ever forgotten" kills me. EVERY.TIME.
Merida eat your heart out, Marion is my original ginger archer!
We could have had it aaaaaalllllllllllll!
P.S. One particular holiday highlight included visiting Chepstow, castle of Simon de Belleme from the first episode. Not that I got overexcited or anything...And yes, I am listening to Clannad writing this. THERE WAS NO OTHER OPTION!
