Cun­ning plan to bring back Black­ad­der

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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.
