A short Blackadder update

Hello! It’s been a while. It’s been a bloody long while to be honest. But there hasn’t been any news worth talking about. If there had I’d have bloody well shouted about it from the rooftops.

While, most people would love for the gang to get back together for one last hurrah, Captain Darling actor Tim McInnerny, believes the show shouldn’t be revived and that it should remain the classic that is; without a fifth series that could tarnish its classic status.

The RedAdder, or Red Adder storyline is nothing new to those of us who have been fans of the series for longer than we can remember; It’s been mentioned on here in the 20+ years I’ve been running the website. But it’s always interesting when one of the cast/crew mention it in interviews. Recently, Rowan […]
