Clarion, they've said that the idea is to set in in the present day with Blackadder an ageing university lecturer.
Thanks Naomi, although I'm not convinced that would work. But what do I know?!

I thought Queenie was one of the best characters ever. Brilliant!
sounds like a cunning plan
//set in in the present day with Blackadder an ageing university lecturer//
he'd be more than ageing if he survived going over the top in the great war
Yay, more left-wing comedic propaganda on its way!

No but seriously, if it does happen and matches (but updates) the comedic tone of series 2, 3 and 4, then it's great news.
I was too young when this hit our screens.

Have I missed out on something decent here?!
Could be a great series - just so long as they keep Blackadder separate from Mr Bean.
It's on DVD (and Netflix, and even YouTube), so that's no excuse ag :P

Give the first series a miss, but the remainder are superb.
From the link //Blackadder will be a lot older, of course.//

Not sure why Blackadder has to be a lot older as he’s a kind of reincarnation in each series. But anyway, I hope there actually will be a new series.
Dummy! The actor will be a lot older than last time.
Ok Jim! I've heard good things but never followed it up!
It will be interesting to see how the 'family-lines' have fared since the end of WW1.
No-one from the Flashheart clan, of course..... :o(

//Not sure why Blackadder has to be a lot older //

Because Rowan Atkinson is now a lot older. They could hardly portray the latest member of the Blackadder clan as a 30 year old.

ag, since tastes in humour vary so much I hesitate to recommend anything. The several series have followed, through the ages, the exploits of the latest member of the Blackadder clan and his servant Baldric. This might give you some idea.

I agree that the first series isn't the best. It bears little relation to the rest which are quite brilliant. Very funny indeed .... in my opinion. ;o)
Thanks Naomi, I like a good laugh so will give it a shot! ;-)
I'm afraid that I'll be away from AB for the next few days as I have to check into a hospital. Something must be seriously wrong with me if I'm agreeing with Naomi about something :O

I know. I corrected myself immediately after that post.
Did you ever see the BlackAdder Pilot, by the way, N? It's set in the same period as the original series but with Rowan Atkinson playing a version of BlackAdder that is far closer to the second/third/fourth series than what ended up being the character in the first series. I've always wondered why it ended up changing to such a cringey character instead.
