Stuck in the middle of World War I, Captain Edmund Blackadder does his best to escape the banality of the war.
Tim McInnerny's character was originally named Captain Cartwright. Stephen Fry had the idea to change it to Darling (named after a boy at his school) and created a running gag which is frequently used throughout the series.
I have a cunning plan.
Captain Darling is supposed to have the same rank as Blackadder, but wears a uniform with red lapels and a red band on his cap, which would make him at least a major.
The closing credits are notably presented as static captions, instead of scrolled down as in the previous three series.
