While the Prince Regent is attending a play, he survives an assassination attempt by anarchists. He is horrified to learn that he is unpopular and Blackadder suggests he improves his image by delivering a speech, so he hires the two actors they saw at the theatre to tutor him in public speaking.

Anarchists lurk in every cupboard and actors in every coffee house, but which pose a greater threat to the prince?
