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

An orchestral anthem in genuine praise of Blackadder (in contrast to Blackadder (1982) and Blackadder 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 »
I am the most die-hard Blackadder fan around, and I couldn't get all the way through this one. Granted, a bad Blackadder is better than 99% of what's on TV, but this was not up to Blackadder standards. It had it's moments, but in general, I'd recommend skipping this one and breaking out the older episodes.
