Richard Carpenter’s ROBIN OF SHERWOOD
‘THE WATERFORD BOY’
By Jennifer Ash
Narrated by JUDI TROTT
(Set during Series Three, just prior to ‘The Time of the Wolf’)
On King John’s command, all convicted male felons from England’s gaols are being sent to fight in France. The Crown’s chief recruiter, James D’Marelle, is touring the country and rounding up each quota of men.
When word reaches Nottingham Castle that the King’s chief recruiter, James D’Marelle, is paying a visit, the Sheriff of Nottingham orders Sir Guy of Gisburne to gather a few men from each local village to quickly make up the numbers. In the village of Waterford, Gisburne becomes enraged by a young boy’s ritualistic chants to Herne the Hunter and he vows to capture him.
Robin is angered by the Sheriff’s new people tax… but his rage is nothing compared to that of Will Scarlet when he hears Alwin mutter the name, D’Marelle.
For Will and the recruiter have met before… many years ago…
