MATERIALISING IN TWO (days)

Peter Capaldi’s Doctor has had an adventure with Robin Hood, much to his annoyance, insisting throughout that Robin was not a real person, and consequently there must be a more sinister force behind the scenes in “Robots of Sherwood” (2014)—neatly tying the show back to the 1966 Patrick Troughton serial set in the Land of Make-Believe, 1968’s “The Mind Robber.” The knowing argument here, of course, is how a folkloric character is created from bits and pieces culled from historical sources, and the “search for Robin Hood” much like the search for the real King Arthur (his relatives, at least, who appear in 1989’s “Battlefield”), inquires after the creation of historical and cultural narrative as a reflection of the author’s own setting.
