Brand-new tales of rip-roaring adventure, featuring the original cast of the classic 1980’s television series ‘Robin of Sherwood’.
These narrator-led, sound effects-heavy and originally-scored audiobooks have been released this month.
Speaking on behalf of Spiteful Puppet, Creative Director Barnaby Eaton-Jones said: “It was a genuine thrill to produce and direct these four brand-new stories of adventure, in audiobook form. The late Richard Carpenter, who wrote and created the original series, had an uncanny knack of marrying historical facts with medieval fantasy – all wrapped up in proper adventure yarns. I am delighted to have been able to bring such a diverse range of narrators to the fore from the original series, who all immensely enjoyed telling their tales.”
