Dickins' classic tale of kindness, truth and virtue completely mucked up and ruined by having a member of the Blackadder family involved. Also Baldrick, of course, the man you rely on to turn a Christmas dinner into a dog's dinner, as long as the dog isn't particularly fussy. Stuffed with deeply horrid people (many of whom are gigantically fat) and groaning with carloads of seasonal bottom jokes, it manages to squeeze in not only Victorian Blackadder but also his famous Elizabethan, Regency and Space Age relatives into a huge pie of entertainment that will satisfy all but the most discriminating viewers. Not suitable for beadles, orphans, nieces, or long dead members of the Royal Family.
Blackadder's A Christmas Carol is another very amusing special in the much beloved Bristish comedy. It still involves a Blackker and Baldrick which will please many fans. It involves a nice blackadder who gives away all his money a presents to the needy. In the end Blackadder turns into an evil greedy man. A must buy for all Blackadder fans!
Not only great christmas viewing but also a look back at the familiar characters from Blackadder series past (and also a very funny science fiction setting). Too bad there doesn't seem to be anything in the way of special features but that's the same with all the Blackadder DVDs released unfortunately.
