The first series, 'The Blackadder', is set during the supposed reign of Richard IV (Brian Blessed).

In series two, 'Blackadder II', Edmund has been reduced to the rank of Lord in Elizabethan London, and seeks to insinuate himself into the Queen (Miranda Richardson)'s court, hindered as ever by Lord Percy and Baldrick, and the queen's chancellor, Lord Melchett (Stephen Fry). Episodes are: 'Bells'; 'Head'; 'Potato'; 'Money'; 'Beer'; and 'Chains'. In series three, 'Blackadder the Third', Edmund Blackadder is now butler to the moronic Prince George (Hugh Laurie), and in Regency London he finds himself crossing paths with figures such as Samuel Johnson (Robbie Coltrane), the elusive Scarlet Pimpernel (McInnerny), and the violent Duke of Wellington (Fry). Episodes are: 'Dish and Dishonesty'; 'Ink and Incapability'; 'Nob and Nobility'; 'Sense and Senility'; 'Amy and Amiability'; and 'Duel and Duality'.
