What Did You Think of Robot Of Sherwood?

Now that the Third episode of series 8 has been aired what did you think? Was it everything you had hoped for or not what you expected…

In a sun-dappled Sherwood forest, the Doctor discovers an evil plan from beyond the stars and strikes up an unlikely alliance with Robin Hood.

With all of Nottingham at stake, the Doctor must decide who is real and who is fake. Can impossible heroes really exist?

    Sorry guys but that was awful, bad plot and terrible writing. The series so far us a let down,capaldi needs great writing to pull off his lack of romantic appeal, think he has been let down too. Dr who should have a bit of silly nonsense goes part and parcel but 3 episodes of insipid, obvious and poor attempts at humour is enough now. Insulting as dr who fans are generally intelligent viewers capable if following intricate plots and storylines. This series is awful so far.

    I agree that this was the worst episode in the series so far. I don’t like this Doctor. I have tried to like him, but for me he feels less and less like the Doctor each week. Jenna Coleman once again carried the episode, like the previous weeks. Its certainly not all Peter Capaldi’s fault; the scripts aren’t as enjoyable either. Over the last few weeks, I have started to wonder if I am the only Whovian not enjoying the 12th Doctor, however on speaking to fellow fans, it would appear that only the ones liking the 12th are taking the time to post, and the dislikers aren’t bothering.

    I quite enjoyed it. I wasn’t expecting this episode to be great, but I hoped it wasn’t too bad. No, it wasn’t a great episode, but it was fun. Especially Robin’s and the Doctor’s constant arguing. Certainly not the greatest, but defiantly one of the funniest episodes since 2005!

    What a brilliant episode, made me warm to Capaldi and was generally great all-round. So much better than Moffat’s writing, thanks to Mark Gatiss!

    Fantastic!. I thought the constant bickering between robin hood and the doctor was quite funny. Jenna coleman is really shining in this series alongside the amazing peter capaldi by her side. This episode i thought had a more ‘classic’ feel to it than the previous two.

    Brilliant episode! Loved this rendition of the classic tale. Looking forward to (hopefully) meeting Ben Miller tomorrow at Nor-Con V (convention in Norfolk). What a fantastic weekend!!! New who, tomorrow’s events. Wowzers!!!

    A great episode overall, but there were two things I found implausible: the golden arrow bit at the end, and Clara’s magical growing hair!

    so – did I see Patrick Troughton in that episode?


    September 6th, 2014 - 8:29pm

    meh, it was ok
    bit cliched, the doctor and robin got annoying. plot was a bit weak, robots died quite quickly, and it wasn’t about them. it was about the sheriff, i thought it’d have more to do with them.
    on a good point, ben miller was great
    I didn’t expect much from it, not as good as last week
    next week looks great!

  • The Dark Doctor (Formally Eternal Dalek)

    September 6th, 2014 - 8:25pm

    Absolultely Amazing. A new twist on a true legend!

    It was like the 1st Doctor combined with the 3rd Doctor!

    A really great episode. It reminded me of the first Sontaran episode with Lynx.

    Well…it was okay. The worst episode so far this series, but so far we’ve only seen 3. The plot didn’t quite make sense (with the golden arrow) and it was a bit too silly for my liking, but it was still enjoyable.
