Pick of the Day: Robin Hood: Jonas Armstrong broods on the news that the series ends tonight
Drama: Robin Hood 6.50 pm BBC1
Robin (Jonas Armstrong) spends much of tonight's final episode in a sulk. "I'm sick of doing the right thing," says our soulful outlaw, before retiring to lean against a tree and gaze into the middle-distance.
In his absence, sidekick Much is left to carry the show and Sam Troughton plays a blinder. So much so, you wonder whether the drama isn't a bit better when Robin's off-screen - which can't be right, can it?
Meanwhile, Guy of Gisborne (Richard Armitage) shows his usual dash in a bizarre black leather kaftan. After the ups and downs of last week's episode it's a reasonably rollicking plot, and it comes to a head with a piece of cartoon archery that allows the sheriff - and the series - to end on a high.
