Over its fifty plus year history Doctor Who has explored time, space and also a great number of literary heroes, like in the eighth season episode inspired by the legend of Robin Hood, 'Robot of Sherwood'.

And you can't have a Robin Hood story without his arch-nemesis, the 'Sheriff of Nottingham' (played in this instance by Ben Miller). On this occasion the villain has found a crashed spacecraft and has taken control of the robotic men that piloted it, with a plan to conquer the world.
