It is England, 1588. Queen Elizabeth I, divine and yet at the same time very pretty and rather accessible, sits upon the throne. Lord Edmund Blackadder, arrogant peer about town, has fallen on harder times than those to which he is used. Along with his bottom-breathed servant Baldrick and pea-brained chum Lord Percy, he gets himself in a number of scrapes with his cunning plans to curry favour at court; whether as the new minister for "religious genocide" who might have to let the cat out of the bag about getting his beheadings mixed up, through to hosting his Puritanical relatives the Whiteadders whilst at the same time, hosting a bawdy lads’ booze-up!
