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 series was the originator of Baldrick's obsession with the turnip; this arose from a botanical error on the part of Ben Elton, who confused the vegetable with the "amusingly shaped" parsnip.
Have you got a plan, my lord?
Blackadder: Yes I have, and it's so cunning you could brush your teeth with it.
The series title has a snake in the "B" of "Black-Adder".
