Great start for a new team
This was a great start to a new writing team Eric and Karen Roger, with Eric doing the directing. Conan Doyle (150th anniversary of his birth this year by the way) wrote two books about these characters. The first "Sir Nigel" was about the crusades, the second "The White Company" happens mostly around the forest. Conan Doyle had a house over the other side of the A31 and is buried in our churchyard, somewhat, grudgingly by all accounts as he was a prominent spiritualist. Anyway Doyle thought very highly of these two books and was constantly depreciating about Sherlock Holmes. In fact the Sir Nigel books are high old rot but great fun to read.
A prominent character is the "Socman of Minstead". "Socman" means free man, if I remember right and there is probably some historical something in all this. The current Socman is, I suppose, whoever is Lord of the Manor now - presumably Peter Green's son.
