Added DiffLines:

* IfYoureSoEvilEatThisKitten: in the two-part final episode "The Time of the Wolf", Gisburne, captured by the murderous wolf cultists, accepts their invitation to join them because he's finally fed up with being the Sheriff's flunky (the last straw was when the Sheriff tried to blame Gisburne for a failure of his own, which would get him executed). Later they capture the Sheriff as well, and eventually tell Gisburne to kill him. He [[spoiler:fails the test not because he's unwilling to kill the Sheriff but because [[EvenEvilHasStandards he insists on doing it cleanly with a sword rather than butchering him with an axe]]. In the end they both escape and are reconciled]].

There were plans for a fourth series, but the production company ran out of money; there were several attempts up until 2010 to revive it, including plans for a movie and several attempts to pitch a new series to ITV, none of which came to anything. Robert Addie, who played Guy of Gisburne, died in 2003 and Richard Carpenter died in 2012. Still all of the surviving cast were finally able to reunite in 2015 for [[http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2015-07-23/robin-of-sherwood-to-return-with-stars-jason-connery-ray-winstone-judi-trott-and-clive-mantle "The Knights of the Apocalypse",]] an audio drama based on an unfilmed script of Carpenter's. It was released in 2016.

** While Richard Carpenter deserves credit for giving Marion back her street-cred (she was quite the {{Badass}} in the old ballads, before Hollywood got hold of her and turned her into a DamselInDistress) by making her a useful and skilled member of the outlaws, she also goes through an ''awful'' lot of bondage and brainwashing in his scripts.
