Maid Marian and Her Merry Men: They Came From Outer Space: ISBN 0 563 36709 1

BBC Books 1992

After hours of painstaking research, the true story of what happened in Sherwood Forest has been uncovered. Maid Marian did all the work and Robin Hood tool all the credit. Robin was actually a terrific coward. It was Marian, a born leader ever since she was her school’s rounder’s captain, who managed to assemble a complete bunch of idiots to fight the evil ways of King John and the Sheriff of Nottingham.
In the worlds first ever science fiction story, the town of Worksop is threatened by aliens from outer space. King John suggests an intergalactic star wars defence system- and guess what? - a tax is levied to pay for it. Can Maid Marian and her Merry Men ward off the terrifying Extra-terrestrials, and are the people prepared to pay the new tax?
Tony Robinson, who plays the Sheriff of Nottingham in the BBC television series Maid Marian and Her Merry Men, now rips off his beard and wig in order to retell another wonderful old story in his own inimitable way.
