BBC Worldwide Press Releases


Blackadder's Christmas Carol

Released on DVD by BBC Worldwide on 18 November 2002

Dickens' classic tale of kindness, truth and virtue completely mucked up and ruined by having a member of the Blackadder family involved. And Baldrick, of course, the man you can 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 cartloads of seasonal bottom jokes, it manages to squeeze in not only a 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.

Written by Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and A Funeral) and Ben Elton, Blackadder has won an International Emmy, 4 CableACE awards, 3 BAFTAs, a VII Pater Award and an RTS award.
