The year is 1485: Riding out of the nowhere into the now is Edmund (Rowan Atkinson), Duke of Edinburgh -- better known as The Black Adder -- the demented, embittered, and ruthlessly ambitious son of an obscure British king. Arriving late at the Battle of Bosworth, Edmund accidentally kills King Richard III (Peter Cook), whom he mistakes for a horse thief, thereby placing Richard IV (Brian Blessed) on the throne of England. Edmund must now hide his brother Henry Tudor (Robert East), the Prince of Wales, in his own quarters, as part of a master plan to claim the throne for himself. "The Foretelling" originally aired on June 15, 1983. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Black Adder: Born to Be King The second episode of The Black Adder's first season, "Born to Be King," was a reworking of the series' unsold pilot episode. Having inadvertently placed Richard IV (Brian Blessed) on the throne of England, the scheming Edmund (Rowan Atkinson) must find some way to discredit the heir apparent Prince Harry (Robert East) and thereby become king himself. Slowing down his efforts in this episode are the preparations for the Queen's birthday party and the planned assassination of disagreeable Scottish war hero McAngus (Alex Norton). "Born to Be King" was originally telecast on June 22 1983. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Black Adder: The Witchsmeller Pursuivant The Black Death has not only decimated half of England, but has also forced King Richard IV (Brian Blessed) into his sick bed. Hoping to curry favor with the populace and become King himself, the duplicitous Edmund declares that the plague is the result of witchcraft, thus he hires the infamous Witchsmeller (Frank Finlay) to root out all sorcerors in the land. Alas, the first "witch" whom the Witchsmeller smells is Edmund himself! "The Witchsmeller Pursuivant" was originally telecast on July 13, 1983. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Black Adder: The Queen of Spain's Beard It is now the year 1492: Edmund (Rowan Atkinson) is still jockeying to become King of England, while the actual monarch, Richard IV (Brian Blessed), is busily making enemies of everyone in Europe. In order to prevent a war with Spain, Edmund is ordered to marry that country's Princess Maria (Miriam Margoyles). This, he figures, will put him in an excellent position to fulfill his dream of ruling England -- but things don't quite work out as planned. The episode's funniest moments belong to Jim Broadbent as the Princess' interpreter, Don Speekingleesh. "The Queen of Spain's Beard" first aired on July 6, 1983. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Black Adder: The Archbishop Though he'd much rather be King of England, Edmund (Rowan Atkinson) is willing to accept the lesser post of Archbishop of Canterbury. But there's a catch: the Archbishop is out of favor with King Richard IV (Brian Blessed), thus all of Edmund's predecessors have met with sudden and violent deaths. How, pray tell, can our "hero" turn this situation to his advantage? "The Archbishop" first aired in England on June 29, 1983. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Black Adder: The Black Seal The inaugural season of the British satirical comedy series The Black Adder ended on July 20, 1983, with the episode titled "The Black Seal." Having exhausted all efforts to usurp the throne of England, Edmund (Rowan Atkinson) resorts to drastic measures -- which, characteristically, are really drastic. Planning to seize the throne by force, Edmund enlists the aid of the Seven Most Evil Men in the land -- among them such worthies as Three-Fingered Pete (Roger Slomon), Sir Wilfred Death (John H
