FANS are all saying the same thing after watching the first two episodes of Sherwood – they can’t get enough of the show’s “truly stellar” cast.
“Gosh. #Sherwood. What a cast! So many familiar faces!” one keen viewer tweeted.
“Wow, #Sherwood is brilliant — multi-layered, thoughtful, mature, and such a great cast. Best thing I’ve seen in ages,” another gushed.
A third viewer commented that the show is “brilliantly cast and gripping and full of dread.”
“Great first episode of #Sherwood and the cast is a who’s who of the cream of British talent, should be a good few weeks!” a fourth fan added.
Another viewer praised the show’s impressive cast while also pointing out the show’s Notts County blunder in the first episode.

David Morrissey is back on TV with Sherwood – here’s why you might recognise him
The BBC thriller began airing on Monday this week. It took the prime 9pm slot with the second episode following suit on Tuesday.
The six-part series follows a small-town constabulary in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, which has been tasked with solving two unexpected — and seemingly unconnected — killings. The deaths rock the local community and soon lead to a large-scale manhunt.
The thriller’s large ensemble cast includes David Morrissey, who leads the series as Detective Chief Superintendent Ian St Clair. Viewers might recognise him from Doctor Who and The Walking Dead.
“Off to a great start; almost anyone I’ve seen so far could lead the cast, but thrilled to see David Morrissey. #Sherwood,” one fan tweeted in support of the actor’s casting.

Spooks actor Robert Glenister plays Detective Inspector Kevin Salisbury from the Metropolitan Police, and he’s leading the investigation alongside Ian St Clair. However, the pair must put aside their decades-long rivalry to uncover the truth about these deaths.
The detective duo is joined on screen by The Crown’s Leslie Ann Manville, Utopia star Adeel Akhtar, New Tricks alum Alun Armstrong and Lewis actor Clare Holman.
Wow, that’s a lot of British talent, but it’s not all.
Rounding out Sherwood’s star-studded cast are two Downton Abbey main-stays: Joanne Froggatt and Kevin Doyle. The duo were most recently seen on the big screen in Downton Abbey: A New Era.
Sherwood’s plot is a fictionalised retelling of a true story and comes from the award-winning playwright and dramatist James Graham.
“It means the world to have this opportunity to bring the voices of a community I grew up in to BBC One,” James said.

He continued: “So much is spoken about the divisions and difficulties in these ‘Red Wall’ towns, but they’re not always understood.
“I feel so honoured to be able to tell a fictionalised story about a very real trauma, but with the humour and heart and resilience of the people I know and love there.”
- Sherwood continues tonight at 9pm on BBC One.
