When a mysterious sniper begins to murder the innocent people of Nottingham, the Sheriff is quick to blame Robin Hood. To stop the killings, Robin must work with the Sheriff to discover the true identity of the murderer. Is it really the elusive Nightwatchman? And can the Sheriff really be trusted?...

Who Shot the Sheriff? is a 2-disc CD collection, which sees Jacqueline Rayner adapting Paul Cornell's original script from the TV series into an audio book.

This is the third release in the Robin Hood series of audio books based on the original TV series episodes, and sees Robin under suspicion of murdering a tax collector. It is the villagers that suspect Robin, which is all the excuse the Sheriff of Nottingham needs to help him in his fight against the outlaws. Robin has his own suspicions who the real killer is, but must act quick to clear his own name after several more murders are committed. Robin decides to makes deal with the Sheriff in order to clear his reputation. But, when Robin's chief suspect turns out to be someone he knows very well indeed, his detective skills are brought into serious question.

This audio book is read by Richard Armitage, who plays Guy of Gisborne in the BBC's Robin Hood series. This release also includes an extra in the form of another bonus interview with Richard Armitage, giving an exclusive behind-the-scenes account of filming for the BBC show. This time, in this five minute chat, he talks about the hazards of sword fighting and the problems, and benefots, of filming abroad - and how the main thing he misses is not being able to get baked beans.
