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.
The format of the Blackadder series was changed substantially after the BBC was displeased with the first series, The Black Adder (1982). The new BBC One Controller Michael Grade agreed to make another series if it was made as a standard studio sitcom with an audience, the characters' roles were redefined and the budget was substantially trimmed.
Have you got a plan, my lord?
Blackadder: Yes I have, and it's so cunning you could brush your teeth with it.
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).
