Mackinnon arrows in on new series

THE new series of a popular BBC drama begins this weekend – and with a Scot as its director.

Douglas Mackinnon has directed the first two episodes of Robin Hood, the first of which is being broadcast on Saturday, on BBC ONE, at 6.50pm. This is the third series.

It’s been a good week for the Highlands-based director – he was behind two episodes of the Dr Who series that, the other day, received a BAFTA TV nomination.
