27. Trial by Battle

INTRODUCTORY MINSTREL SONG: "Maid Marian is doomed to hang, brave knights it seems are all too few; of course it's Robin Hood at last, who proves her champion true!"
SUMMARY: Maid Marian is accused of the murder of King's commissioner. Trial by battle is the only hope to stay her execution, but the men of Sherwood feel that Robin is too ill to be her champion. Features Nicholas Parsons as Sir Walter.
