Served by a dungball in a dress (Baldrick) and accompanied by a bird-brained dimwit (Lord Percy, Percy, Heir to the Duchy of Northumberland) he can’t shake off, Lord Edmund Blackadder, the bastard great-great-grandson of the repulsive original Prince (King) Edmund Plantagenet, is reasonably normal - until he meets a manservant named Bob. All the while trouble is in store for Edmund as the baby-eating Bishop of Bath and Wells drops by unexpectedly and tries to shove a red-hot poker up places where a cotton bud would be kinder.

Financially fickle, Blackadder receives a letter from his fanatically Puritan Aunt, Lady Whiteadder wishing to discuss his inheritance over supper. However, this leads to a right royal to-do due to an embarrassing incident with a turnip, an ostrich feather and the chief of a famous tribe called Great Boo. Someone is bound to lose their head over this boy’s night out!

Having lost his inheritance, Blackadder needs to entertain the Queen, arrange a wedding and still find £1,000 by evensong tonight. A plan so cunning that you could brush your teeth with it, needs to be devised! Unfortunately Edmund gets slightly inconvenienced by a fat-headed German chamber-pot that kidnaps both him and his nemesis, Lord Melchett. Queenie now has the difficult decision to pay the ransom for only one of her favourite suitors or to have a fancy dress party.

Will this be the end of Blackadder?
