Product Overview

Rowan Atkinson is deliciously twisted as the comic villain, Edmund Blackadder, in the premiere series of Britain's enormously popular comedy series. Set during the really dark part of the Dark Ages, it chronicles the wickedly funny misadventures of the terminally treacherous Edmund, Duke of Edinburgh, in the most gripping sitcom since 1380!

The Foretelling
From out of the swirling mists of the Dark Ages comes a lone horseman with a most ridiculous haircut, haunted by the ghost of Richard III.

Born To Be King
An orange-faced, kilt-clad Scotsman sends waves of shock through the court of England with his treachery, murder and Scottish dancing.

The Archbishop
The landscape is littered with dead Archbishops of Canterbury... and Edmund the Reluctant is next in line for this rather precarious position!

The Queen Of Spain's Beard
When one of Europe's most eligible princesses is up for grabs, the scheming Edmund tries to lure her into his lascivious clutches.

Witchsmeller Pursuivant
The King contracts a nasty case of the Black Death and blames it on witchcraft. Only the witchsmeller can sniff out the hocus-pocus.

The Black Seal
Edmund hatches a hapless, hilarious plot to dethrone the king... with the help of the Seven Most Evil Men in the Land.
