What if Robin Hood and his traditional nemesis, the Sheriff of Nottingham, were the same person? - BBC America Developing Robin Hood Drama Series ‘Nottingham’ From ‘Dracula’ Creator

Nottingham centers on the Sheriff of Nottingham whose wife is killed by King John’s men. When nobody is brought to justice, the Sheriff launches a one-man war against the Crown. By day, he remains the reviled Sheriff, loyal servant of the King, but by night he puts on a hood and, using the intelligence he gains from his office, attacks the King where it hurts the most – his coffers. As Robin Hood, he systematically raids the King’s men, his noble loyalists and political allies, giving the spoils to the starving peasantry and starting a rebellion that will change England forever.
Ohh, that's a clever twist.
