Robin Hood Returns?

Chu Me and I sat eagerly awaiting the return of Robin Hood this evening. A selection of nibbles was spread over the drawing room coffee table. I was accompanied by a beautifully prepared Martini while my faithful houseboy, Chu Me, was swallowing a Black Russian in the leather armchair in the corner.

Crusty was shocked, however, when the episode began. It has been some time since the series was on our screens and the time has certainly not proved kind to the lead, Jonas Armstrong. One remembers him pressing all the right buttons and making one swoon at his breathtaking masculinity in the first series but one feels hamburgers, beer and boxing have been the words de jour in his time off from filming.

His resemblance to a Liverpudlian Chav was uncanny and one expected a Burberry baseball cap to be donned at some point. Thankfully, this did not prove to be the case. Let us hope the makeup department at the glorious BBC can remedy the situation and return him to his former level of delectability.
