One of the true greats of British comedy, Blackadder started life as a large budget 'Rowan Atkinson' show, who was fresh from his success in Not the Nine O' Clock news. However the BBC decided that it was far too expensive and writer Richard Curtis was told to scale it down if a second series was to be made. Rowan stopped co writing the series and Curtis was joined by Young Ones writter Ben Elton and the show hit an all time high.
Black Adder just kept going from strength to strength from the late Fourteenth Century to 1917 and the first world war. The show has made household names of Rowan Atkinson, Tony Robinson, Stephen Fry,Hugh Laurie.and many others and includes proformers such Peter Cook,Robbie Coltrane, Miranda Richardson, Rik Mayall and Ade Edmondson.
