He recruits his trusted valet Tuck, and and his new-found friend "Big John" Sherwood to serve as "Merry Men", with whom he entrusts his secret identity. Dr. Fairbank's nurse, Elaine Barton, has an unspoken attraction to Robin Hood, and is unaware that the daring hero and the good doctor, are one and the same.
