The Black Adder: Born to Be King
(1983) is a remake of the original unaired pilot, with the following differences: - The King is not at the crusades, but at home. - Edmond's plot to kill McAngus involves a hanging with a fake rope, not a staged stabbing with a real dagger. The plan backfires in much the same way. - The King, Prince Henry and Baldrick are played by different actors, respectively John Savident
, Robert Bathurst
and Philip Fox
. - Edmund's personality is much more like his decadents in the other series, much more sarcastic and intelligent. See more
In the hunting scene McAngus tries but fails to sheath his dagger after using it to skin an animal but instead holds it in place until his back is turned. With The Black Adder hanging upside-down behind him a reshoot was presumably not thought desirable. See more

These letters are dated November and December 1460. Which, Harry, in relation to your date of birth is precisely nine months...
AFTER I was born!
[Edmund looks horrified
But about nine months before your birth, Edmund!
Ohh... you bastard!
No, I think that you're the bastard, Edmund.
