Reviews

"a rather elegant overview of Eighties British TV comedy... If you have any interest in comedy, you will love this book ... [Roberts'] research has been assiduous, his judgments are sound and his puppyish enthusiasm encouraged his interviewees to give their best. Unlike Baldrick's cunning plans, this one seems to have worked" -- Marcus Berkman * Daily Mail * "This really is the full history... for true buffs, this is not to be missed" * Press Association * "lively, warm-hearted" * TLS * "The True History of the Black Adder is a brilliant read for any fan of Edmund Blackadder, as well as a great introduction into the history of the contemporary comedy scene" * BookGeeks * "An almost perfect history of the greatest British sitcom there has ever been" * comedy.co.uk *
