The filthy genes of the Blackadder dynasty bubble back to the surface of the melting pot of history for a second series. Now a favourite 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. Classic comedy starring Rowan Atkinson and Tony Robinson.
