Not only is the BBC making a new, shiny Robin Hood, but it will also star Richard Armitage as Guy of Gisborne. This is quite possibly the best TV news I've had...oh, since I don't know when. As they've only started filming I don't think there are any photos, sadly.

ETA: Also I bring you the best review of a Doctor Who DVD I think I have ever read from Amazon

"The only reason it is out is to make money from the very vocal group of geeks who rememember it from their two-channel childhood in the UK."

For some reason I just think this is the funniest thing ever (and I like Who).

He should have had to struggle through the one channel childhood of parts of Ireland. And then RTE Two came along and traumatized children by running terrifying Czech cartoons in the afternoon.

I forget, is Guy of Gisborne the bad guy/character Snape played?

He's the bad character, the sidekick of the sheriff. I expect less brooding and more kicking of people.

If wanting to see Richard Armitage kicking people is wrong, I don't want to be right.

Well you should get your wish because Guy is horrible in all of the Robin Hoods I've seen. I suspect we will also have gnashing of teeth. And him being all lord of the manor. Or whatever else they had in Nottingham in Ye Olden Tymes.
