Director: Paul Murphy Executive producers: Steven Moffat, Brian Minchin Broadcast: 6 September 2014

Director Paul Murphy’s recreation of medieval England is a deliberately exaggerated world, owing far more to Michael Curtiz’ lush Technicolor extravaganza The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938), starring Errol Flynn, than to the realities of life in ‘1190ish’ Nottingham.

The glade in which the TARDIS lands is depicted as an Arcadian idyll, augmented by a fake log-bridge (created by the design team) that spans a real stream, and by additional, strategically placed, brightly coloured flowers. The entire scene is suffused with colour and light, mirroring Tom Riley’s engagingly glamourised portrayal of Robin Hood and leading the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) to question the veracity of his situation.

About Doctor Who Magazine

In its early days, Doctor Who was recorded on cumbersome cameras tethered to claustrophobic and often inadequate studios. The show rarely escaped these confines in the 1960s, but as technology improved, producers and directors became more adventurous. Location shooting has helped to create some of the most memorable episodes in the series’ long history. In this unique publication, new features, exclusive interviews and rare images tell the story of those episodes and the people who made them happen.
