Storyline

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?

Trivia

This film includes extensive location shooting, a rarity for a "Blackadder" production. Although the first series (The Black Adder (1983)) did quite a bit of location shooting, the high cost nearly led to the cancellation of further series. After extensive cost-cutting, Black-Adder II (1986) includes the only location shooting in later series/specials: a courting scene in Black-Adder II: Bells (1986), and the end credit sequences, all filmed in a single day at Wilton House, Wiltshire.

Goofs

Just after Blackadder waves to his dinner guests and enters the time machine for the first time, you can see a blonde crew member wearing a red shirt pushing up the end of the drawbridge-like door to close it as Baldrick is climbing up through the trap door inside. See more »

Queen Elizabeth: They don't.
Blackadder: [nervously] No, but... umm... umm... well, well let's say... let's say... let's say that there was a place where you could buy absolutely everything.
Melchett: [laughing] We already have those Blackadder and they're called markets.
Blackadder: Right, right. Well, imagine that but times ten. As it were a "super" market.

Great Way To End Blackadder
27 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Even though a lot of people on this forum seem to think this is rubbish i think this is a great blackadder ( although not as good as the TV series i admit ), It is funny and tries to incorporate a family audience to blackadder, I saw the film @ the Dome when i was just 10 and i was laughing my head off. There are a phew mistakes with crew visible but it is a nice short film to end the blackadder series.

The crew all seem to have had a great time making the film and it was a good send off after the killing off the characters in series 4, it shows them all as very good friends and Rowan Atkinson @ his cunning best.
