In the Tudor court of Elizabeth I, Lord Edmund Blackadder strives to win Her Majesty's favour while attempting to avoid a grisly fate should he offend her.
Rowan Atkinson, who wrote for the first series The Black Adder (1982), did not wish to continue writing for the second series, so writer and stand-up comedian Ben Elton replaced him.
The path of my life is strewn with cowpats from the Devil's own satanic HERD.
The closing credits is set in a manor garden, where a bard (played by Tony Aitken, voiced by Jeremy Jackman) sings a ballad mocking Blackadder's exploits within the episode and Blackadder endeavors to apprehend the bard (with mixed results, depending on the episode).
