The Adventures of Robin Hood Season 1 Episode 33: The Inquisitor

Friar Tuck is in danger. The Archbishop is in the shire so the priory locks up Tuck to keep his mouth shut or opened depending on intentions. His propensity to stand up for the shires poor and befriend the outlaws caused a nervousness within the priory for the likelihood of distress.  The Archbishop must be told of the harsh treatment the villagers are suffering from. The head of priory seeks a confession from Friar Tuck of treason for consorting with Outlaws, if the confession is to not come easy, the inquisitor will take care of the rest or so they think.

Personal Synopsis

The Inquisitor episode starts off showing the Friar at what he does best, saving children from the black plague. However Friar Tuck does have more enemies, in the shape of The Sheriff and Abbott of Beresford. This episode gives the Friar a chance to show his loyalty towards King Richard the Lionheart and he does so in the shadow of a heavy handed inquisitor. An episode with a strong climax and definitely worth a watch.
