Storyline

In 1648, Sir Edmund Blackadder, descendant of Prince Edmund Plantagent and currently the sole member of the noble dynasty, is one of two people who stayed loyal to King Charles I after Oliver Cromwell's threat, the other being Baldrick, descendant of a pig farmer and a bearded lady. To protect his liege, Sir Edmund has hid the king (the series has already proven to us that the royals are insane) in Blackadder Hall, but Baldrick unwittingly betrays the ruler when Cromwell arrives at the Hall. Blackadder decides he must save the king when he is sentenced to execution, and becomes frustrated when Baldrick cluelessly accepts a job as executioner- until he realizes he may be able to use it to save Charles...

As good as the rest
14 November 1999 | by (Sunderland , ENGLAND) – See all my reviews

This instalment of Blackadder is not a regular episode. It is a fifteen minute special written for the 1988 Comic Relief telethon here in the UK. However, despite its short running time it manages to cram in all of the usual Blackadder humour. Blackadder - The Cavalier Years is just as funny as the other episodes.
