New 'Hood' series 'darker and bigger'
Producers have promised the new series of BBC One's Robin Hood will be "darker and bigger" than the first.

Jonas Armstrong is due to return as the Nottingham hero for a second series in the autumn.

Dominic Minghella, the show's executive producer, commented: "The second series is darker and bigger and Robin is tortured and bullied a bit.

"The battle is not just in Nottingham anymore, it is a battle for England."

And Foz Allan, also a producer, explained: "In the first series Robin was growing between a boy and a man. Now Jonas has beefed up quite a lot and is definitely a man."
