Blackadder Rides Again
27 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This documentary shown at Christmas was to mark the 25th anniversary since the first transmission of The Black Adder in 1983, the much loved sitcom with an iconic cast reunited to give their opinions on all series and specials. Narrated by John Sergeant, this in-depth guide included interviews from the cast and crew, a clip from the pilot episode (unlike the first series, more like the others, why didn't they start that way?), clips from all four series and the one or two specials, opinions about certain moments in the show, and much more. With interviews by Rowan Atkinson, writers Richard Curtis and Ben Elton, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, producer John Lloyd, Miriam Margolyes, Rik Mayall, Tim McInnerny, Miranda Richardson, Tony Robinson and editor Chris Wadsworth. Very good!
