According to a second account, a sceptical Twelfth Doctor brought Clara Oswald to Sherwood Forest in 1190, in an attempt to disprove Hood's existence.

They immediately met Robin upon their arrival, and helped him defeat the Sheriff of Nottingham and a group of robotic knights. The Doctor accessed the ship's database and discovered a wealth of information on the legend of Robin Hood. Throughout the adventure, the Doctor was convinced that Robin was actually a creation of the robots to give the people hope, but eventually learned that he was in fact real. While Robin learned that he would be remembered as a legend and not a man, he was content with this fate. He also reminded the Doctor that they both came from similar backgrounds and had a similar fate: men born into wealth and privilege who were so moved by the plight of the weak and oppressed that they took up the life of an adventurer to help those who can't help themselves. He also showed that, like the Doctor, he didn't consider himself a hero, but believed that by pretending to be one, he could inspire others in his stead. Upon leaving, the Doctor reunited Robin with his lover, Marian. (TV: Robot of Sherwood)
