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?

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.
