Maid Marian and Her Merry Men DVD re-release in November

11 October 2016

Eureka Entertainment are to re-release Maid Marian and Her Merry Men, the must-see comedy drama starring Tony Robinson (Blackadder, Time Team) and Danny John-Jules (Red Dwarf), in a limited edition (3000 copies) DVD boxset on 21 November 2016.

Maid Marian and Her Merry Men was consistently number 1 in the children’s TV ratings throughout its four series, partly because it was popular with children of all ages, but also because it became “must see” viewing for students and young adults. It was popular with the critics too, winning a BAFTA, an RTS Award and the International Prix Jeunesse. This perfectly conceived historical farce is witty, warm and stylish. An excellent cast and faultless writing has drawn comparisons to Blackadder, Red Dwarf, and The Young Ones. It is one of those rare programmes made for and enjoyed by both children and adults and has secured a huge fan-base in the twenty-seven years since the first series was initially transmitted.

Written by and starring Tony Robinson as the Sherriff of Nottingham, Tony has been a regular on our TV screens since he got his big break playing Baldrick in Blackadder. Contained in slim-line packaging with outer slipcase, all four series of Maid Marian and Her Merry Men are featured alongside a compendium booklet by the artist Paul Cemmic (who did the graphics for the original series) released on DVD by Eureka Entertainment on 21 November 2016 at the RRP of £49.99.
