Robin Hood – The Enemy Of My Enemy Ep 11/13

High Definition programme
Saturday 13 June
6.45-7.30pm BBC ONE
Gisborne (Richard Armitage) is Robin’s unlikely ally … for a while
Gisborne (Richard Armitage) is Robin’s unlikely ally … for a while

Unlikely allies Robin and Gisborne gallop side by side in Sherwood Forest, as the medieval drama continues, but, before long, they are at each other's throats. Allan spots them fighting and, thinking that Robin is in mortal danger, quickly summons the others.

The gang breaks up the tussle and reels in disbelief as Robin explains his and Gisborne's kinship and their promise to their dying father that they will rescue their half-brother, Archer, from his death sentence at York.

Robin tells the incredulous outlaws that Gisborne is one of them. Gisborne, meanwhile, tries to bring them around to the idea that "the enemy of my enemy is my friend". They may never trust him, but they must unite to defeat the new Sheriff Of Nottingham – Gisborne's ferocious sister, Isabella.

Robin and Gisborne head for York at breakneck speed. They've heard that Archer has brought an arsenal of innovative weapons from the Orient which, if found, could help bring down Prince John. But Isabella is on their trail and has put a price on their heads of 100 crowns each, if they're taken alive. Can they keep evading her henchmen?

Meanwhile, Archer, their handsome and ever-resourceful half-brother, is playing fast and loose with the Sheriff Of York's wife, Gweneth. Archer is soon taken before her husband, trying to talk his way out of trouble with claims that, not only does he have weapons from the Orient, but he also knows all about the esoteric science of alchemy, which can lead to untold wealth and power.

If Archer's considerable persuasive and swashbuckling skills aren't enough to win his freedom, will his brothers be in time to save him?

Robin Hood is played by Jonas Armstrong; Gisborne by Richard Armitage; Allan A Dale by Joe Armstrong; Archer by Clive Standen; Isabella Gisborne, The Sheriff Of Nottingham, by Lara Pulver; Gweneth by Tracy-Ann Oberman; and The Sheriff Of York by Anthony O'Donnell.

Robin Hood is simulcast on the BBC HD channel – the BBC's High Definition channel available through Freesat, Sky and Virgin Media.

Saturday 13 June
8.40-9.30pm BBC ONE

Ruth submits her application for the surgical training post and is on edge when Sarah Evans pops down to the Emergency Department to assess her performance, as the medical drama continues.

Ruth's nervousness increases when she is given tickets to a surgeons' dinner that evening, and has to try to persuade Jay to go along as her date. When she plucks up the courage to ask him, Jay turns her down, only to change his mind later.

Near the end of the event, Jay flusters Ruth by introducing himself to Sarah as "Dr Faldren". He has been a hit with everyone, and Sarah comments on his likeability. As they leave, Jay tries to convince Ruth to stay out with him. Going against her instinct, she rejects him, reminding him that he is just a nurse to her. As ever, she is left alone.

Elsewhere, Adam is concerned when he sees Zoe and Jordan becoming closer and tries to persuade Jordan to tell Zoe the truth about his illness. Jordan puts a note in Zoe's pigeon-hole and thinks the deed is done, until he meets her later that evening and discovers that she hasn't read it. He decides to put the task off for another day.

Elsewhere, Jessica is missing Lucas and Amelia and, in a bid to get them back, phones Maureen and tells her Sean is Harry's father.

Ruth is played by Georgia Taylor, Jay by Ben Turner, Adam by Tristan Gemmill, Zoe by Sunetra Sarker, Jordan by Michael French and Jessica by Gillian Kearney.
