The Sheriff and his men capture Roy, and the outlaws find a baby abandoned in Sherwood Forest. Roy is given a choice: kill Robin Hood or let his own mother hang. Meanwhile, Marian angers the Sheriff with her disobedience. Will Roy betray Robin? How will the Sheriff punish Marian? And who does the baby belong to?...

Parent Hood is a 2-disc CD collection, which sees Mandy Archer adapting Mark Wadlow's original script from the TV series into an audio book.

This is the fourth release in the Robin Hood series of audio books based on the original TV series episodes, and sees Roy being captured by Gisborne's men. The Sheriff of Nottingham gives Roy an ultimatum: kill Robin Hood, or watch his own mother hang. Roy is allowed to go free, although Robin thinks he's escaped. Now it's just down to Roy to pick his moment to kill Robin and free his mother.

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 this being one of the first audio books he's done; problems with trying to provide the voices of each character; and the show's love triangle.
