Cunning plan to bring back Blackadder
TELLY fans should brace themselves for a brand new series of Blackadder, according to star Tony Robinson.
The actor, who played Rowan Atkinson’s bungling side-kick Baldrick in the long-running BBC comedy, has hinted that a new instalment is in the works.
Time Team host Robinson, 65, said the new Blackadder could be set in the swinging Sixties.
He said: “I’d be up for reuniting.
“Rowan’s said he’d be up for it. The story always was that we’d do one where Rowan, aka Blackadder, was the bastard son of Queen Elizabeth II who used to hang around the King’s Road in the Sixties and had his own rock band including a drummer with no hair called Bald Rick.
“I’d certainly be up for it.”
The last series of Blackadder, set in the trenches of World War One, first aired in 1989.
