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.
Miranda Richardson beat out 40 other actresses for the role of Elizabeth I.
Have you got a plan, my lord?
Blackadder: Yes I have, and it's so cunning you could brush your teeth with it.
In the opening credits, a snake (a Mexican black kingsnake) slithers across a marble table (in a homage/parody to I, Claudius (1976), a historical/political drama series which starred Patsy Byrne). However, the snake doesn't go the way it should, and at the end is removed and replaced with an object (the object varies depending on the episode).
