Blackadder At 40

Blackadder’s Most Cunning Moments, 2008

A UKTV original show, this followed an exclusive documentary “Blackadder: The Whole Rotten saga”, both of which were originally broadcast back in 2008.

Now it’s 5 years on, 2023, and Edmund Blackadder is celebrating his 40th anniversary so we thought it was a good time to look back at Blackadder’s Most Cunning Moments.


Blackadder’s Most Cunning Moments  was a celebration of the iconic period sitcom in which cast members, crew, celebrity fans and 15 genuine Blackadders chose their favourite clips revealing GOLD’s 40 greatest Blackadder moments.

The show featured a special introduction by Tony Robinson and producer John Lloyd, along with contributions from co-writer Ben Elton and actor Stephen Fry, who appeared in many of the best-loved episodes.
