Blackadder’s Christmas Carol

Blackadder's Christmas Carol

I just love watching Christmas Carol re-tellings, especially the ones with a little twist. So what is better than a reverse one? If you know Black Adder (one of my favourite comedy series EVER) you will know already that this short movie – it is only 45 minutes – will be funny and entertaining.

Mr. Ebenezer Blackadder is a good person, charitable and giving, but after the visit of the Ghost of Christmas (delightful Robbie Coltrane alone is worth watching the film just because of his little ballerina entering dance) he decides to change his ways.

The whole Black Adder cast is present, Baldrick is the ubiquitous servant as always, and the usual suspects make an appearance, Hugh Laurie as the dozy Prince George, Stephen Fry as Lord Melchett, Miranda Richardson, Miriam Margolyes, Nursie, everybody you know and love is there.

Traditional Christmas Carol fans might be a wee bit disappointed in this rendition but for Black Adder fans this is a must see.

  1. No, you can’t. I absolutely love him and can’t decide which series I love most. On New Year’s Eve we will be watching the Back and Forth special, do you know that one? Also very funny!

    • You have them and never watched them? Caroline, you have to remedy that immediately. It is one of the funniest shows I have ever seen, I can watch them over and over and every time they crack me up.
