Nottingham, the show’s filming location, takes centre stage once more, with the narrative introducing two new families who become entangled with the Sparrows. Meanwhile, the newly appointed Sheriff of Nottingham passionately opposes a proposed new mine, bringing much-needed jobs but also unwelcome reminders of the area’s complex legacy.
