Rowan Atkinson, Tony Robinson and Stephen Fry star in this classic comedy that re-writes the annals of history. Now a favorite at the Court of Elizabeth I, Edmund Blackadder keeps his head from being chopped off by the capricious Queen with rapier-sharp wit, cunning and bravado. Meanwhile, his rival Lord Melchett loses no opportunity to try to disgrace him. Once again Blackadder is accompanied by a small rabble of riff-raff, including bottom-breath Baldrick and pea-brained Percy, together they manage to lower the whole tone of England's Golden Age.

2. Head

The Queen appoints Blackadder as the new Lord High Executioner - a job in which no-one survives more than a week. Blackadder starts badly by executing a chap called Farrow two days early, so as to give him and the rest of the team half the week off. The problem is that the widow (sorry, wife) wants to see her husband one last time, and then the Queen annoyingly decides to pardon Farrow altogether. Digitally remastered version.
