Various mishaps at a police station in an English town. The main character is the anachronistic, yet charming and funny Inspector Fowler. CID foil to Fowler, Inspector Grim is a bumbling, seething idiot.
It's Millennium Eve and Blackadder is hosting a dinner party for a few select friends, Lady Elizabeth, Viscount George, Archbishop Melchett and Archbishop Darling. Baldrick devises yet another of his infamous cunning plans to help his ever greedy master Edmund Blackadder con money from his gullible friends. The pair build a "time machine" from empty cereal packets and place bets with their friends as to when in history they will travel, retrieving various artifacts from their travels as proof, items which Blackadder already owns! However, in a strange twist of fate the time machine actually works and the pair are thrown back in history initially to the Jurassic period. Gradually the pair start to return to their own time stopping off at various famous times in history such as Sherwood Forest and the Battle of Waterloo but will they make it home? Written by

Regarding Blackadder's cunning plan to become king, Baldrick asks if it is as 'cunning as a fox what used to be Professor of Cunning at Oxford University, but has moved on and is now working for the UN at the high commission of International Cunning planning?'. This is building on a line delivered by a previous Blackadder to his Baldrick in Blackadder Goes Forth: Goodbyeee (1989), involving a plan 'as cunning as fox who's just been appointed Professor of Cunning at Oxford University' See more »
When Blackadder walks down the stairs showing Leonardo Da Vinci's sketchbook, we hear him talking about it, but his lips don't move. See more »

Great spirit of Jupiter! Our culture is centuries ahead of theirs. Why, we have toilets... and wipe our bottoms with vinegar-soaked sponges.
Yes... and they wipe their bottoms with Roman soldiers!

The opening credits are a series of historical records, featuring Blackadder as living (and contemptuous) around the time of those records. See more »
Unlike quite a few people on this website I enjoyed this a great deal. I found it hilarious, exciting and surprising (including the dinosaur bit and the squashed Wellington bit). Great fun all the way and well worth watching, if I do say so myself.
This is a single episode of Blackadder, set in 1999 + many other times in history! The day before the millennium, Blackadder plays a prank on his companions, he shows a time machine and says he will bring back anything from the past for each person. Baldrick and Blackadder, with various "promised" items and find themselves really and truly travelling back in time! Hilarious happenings await...
The cynical, intelligent Blackadder: Rowan Atkinson. The stupid, adorable Baldrick: Tony Robinson. + Various actors playing different parts such as Stephen Fry and Miranda Richardson.
I recommend this to people who love the theme of time travelling + Blackadder and for people who like fun, mixed humour. Enjoy! :-)
