Want to watch Sherwood online? Here's how.

Sherwood is a gripping new British crime drama that is partially inspired by real life events. 

The show sees a huge manhunt taking place in a Nottinghamshire mining village after two horrific murders take place, shattering the already fractured community in the process.

As tensions rise, the Met Police arrive, threatening to reopen old wounds caused during the miners' strike in the 1980s. Suspicions will rise between old neighbours and with the police who descend on the town, whilst old police rivals will be forced to bury the hatchet as they try to catch the killer.

Sherwood features a star-studded cast including the likes of David Morrissey, Joanne Froggatt and Lesley Manville and promises to be a gritty, raw British crime drama.

Setting up the series, creator James Graham says: "Sherwood is essentially a six-part thriller, but it’s hugely personal to me and inspired in part by real events in my hometown in Nottinghamshire. It is a contemporary drama and at its heart are two devastating killings which spark a massive manhunt and shatter a community that is already fractured after the divisive effect of the miners' strike 40 years before."
