Blackadder Back and Forth marked the end of the Blackadder saga. It was specially commissioned for the Millennium celebrations, and is a time-travel adventure which reunites most of the cast members for one last time.
Fans of Blackadder may know that there was a Blackadder Comic Relief sketch known as the Cavalier Years. What is perhaps not so well known though, is that another sketch came about due to ideas that were talked about for a fifth Blackadder series.
The Cavalier Years
The 15 minute Blackadder Comic Relief sketch that most fans will know, was broadcast on Red Nose Day Friday 5 February 1988. The Cavalier Years starred Rowan Atkinson, Tony Robinson, and Stephen Fry. Warren Clark ( a previous guest star in Blackadder 2) also puts in an appearance as Oliver Cromwell. The Cavalier Years is a fun sketch, with Stephen Fry’s parody of Prince Charles still funny to this day.read more
The Blackadder saga saw many famous British Comedy faces make appearances over the years. One of those was Ade Edmondson as the Red Baron von Richthoven.
Blackadder Goes Forth has earned its well deserved place in the hall of great British Comedy. As with any comedy series, it is a sum of its parts. A great concept, intelligent writing, and of course the people who star in it. During its 4 series and 3 major Blackadder specials, a number of guest stars made cameo appearances. It was really only a matter of time until Ade ‘Vyvyan’ Edmondson turned up!read more

Hugh Laurie is to be upgraded from the OBE he was awarded in 2007 to a CBE in the New Year’s honours list for 2018.
Hugh Laurie CBE
Blackadder star Hugh Laurie is to be awarded a CBE in this year’s honours list in recognition for his contribution to drama. Whilst we will always know and love him for his roles in Blackadder, he has of course achieved fame far beyond the classic British Sitcom. House anyone?
What is a CBE?
Whilst we want to congratulate Hugh Laurie on being recognised in the New Year’s honours list, we couldn’t help but chuckle at what CBE actually stands for. Apparently, it’s Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. If that doesn’t sound like a title straight out of Blackadder we don’t know what does! It could only be more perfect, if Stephen Fry dressed as General Melchett was to take part in the ceremony itself!read more
