The Black Adder by Richard Curtis and Rowan Atkinson

Set in England at the end of the War of the Roses, we soon find out that history we know is a Tudor fiction. In fact, Henry VII did not actually win the battle of Bosworth Field; he lost and though Richard III died in battle, his nephew King Richard IV (who certainly was not smothered while still a boy in the Tower of London) reigned on for some years. The story focuses on Richard IV's younger son Prince Edmund, a sniveling coward who calls himself “The Black Adder”. Assisted by his grungy servant Baldrick and the moronic Lord Percy, Edmund plots his rise to greatness.

  • Dan: Rowan Atkinson will always be Edmund Blackadder. I couldn't imagine anyone else playing the part. Rowan is one of the funniest men in the world.
