Summary

TELEVISION. This title features six BBC TV episodes starring Rowan Atkinson, Miranda Richardson, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie and Tony Robinson. With a "ya boo sucks" to you Fritzy, hot tiddly tumble - it's off to the Western Front, 1917. Captain Blackadder, hero of Mboto Gorge, joined the British Army when it was little more than a travel agency for gentlemen with an abnormally high sex drive. Now he finds himself crammed into a sewer, twenty yards from a lot of heavily armed people who want to kill him. Worse still, he takes his orders from two homicidal maniacs - one called the Charge of the Light Brigade 'a victory for common sense', and the other is called Darling. Ever ready with a cunning plan, Blackadder actively avoids active duty by taking up art, shooting the General's favourite bird, probing the hospital nurse and learning to fly. But will his attempts to push off be enough to save him when the Big Push comes?
