Six BBC TV episodes starring Rowan Atkinson, Miranda Richardson, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie and Tony Robinson.
England 1558 - 1603. The filthy genes of the Blackadder dynasty bubble to the surface of history's melting pot as Lord Edmund, arrogant peer-about-town, swaggers with a big head and small beard in search of grace and favour from the stark raving mad Queen Bess.
Listen as Lord Blackadder falls in love with a girl named Bob, takes over the job of executioner whilst almost losing his own head, schemes to raise £1,000 to pay off a perverted Bishop, goes on a far-off sea voyage to the remote country of France, and plays charades with a member of the Spanish Inquisition.
Accompanied by a small rabble of beruffed riff-raff - bottom-breath Baldrick and pea-brain Percy - the serpentine Lord Blackadder lowers the whole tone of England's Golden Age.
Richard Curtis and Ben Elton
