Rowan Atkinson and the cast of legendary comedy series Blackadder are back for this one-off documentary special to mark 25 years since the original BBC transmission in 1983. Featuring ... See full summary »
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

When Blackadder exits the time machine in the Elizabethan era, the wall lights in the basement are electric. See more »
Well isn't this splendid and absolutely tufty? New years eve 1999. A new century and a new millennium. Let's drink a great big slurpy toast to peace and understanding around the globe.
Bravo! After all, if history teaches us anything, its that in in the words of St. Burt, what the world needs now is love, sweet love.
Total codswallop. If history teaches us anything, it's that the story of man is one long round of death and torture. And burning people as witches just because they've...

An orchestral anthem in genuine praise of Blackadder (in contrast to The Black Adder (1982) and Black-Adder II (1986), which mocked him) plays over the closing credits. It is accompanied by lyrics to sing along to, which the head of Blackadder bounces along to (and the Queen and Baldrick, when the anthem mentions them). 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! :-)
