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 only location shooting for this season was the courting scene in Black-Adder II: Bells (1986) and the closing credit scenes; these scenes were shot over a couple of consecutive days in the gardens of Wilton House, Wiltshire. The rest of the season was shot on the filming stage, using a couple of standard sets (Blackadder's house and the Queen's court) and a couple of sets that would be built for each episode.
Shut up, Balders. You'd laugh at a Shakespeare comedy.
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).
