Easily the Best
9 May 2017 | by MarqymarquisSee all my reviews

Just for the scene where the prince is being coached by the actors into making a speech; with his legs apart and nipples as though attached to charging two charging rhinoceros then screaming "aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh ..unaccustomed as I am....." is worth a look - old hands Kenneth Connor and Hugh Paddick ham it up for all they are worth a look. Some say this is the worst of all Black Adder Series - I say it is second best to Blackadder Goes Fourth
