Book Description

7 July 2003 BBC Radio Collection
Richard Curtis' and Ben Elton's award-winning comedy in which Rowan Atkinson as the ubiquitous Blackadder, ably hampered by Tony Robinson as the loyal Baldrick, wreaks havoc throughout the centuries. Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry, Robbie Coltrane, Rik Mayall and Miranda Richardson are some of the guest stars joining in the fun. In the occasionally poignant final series, Blackadder enjoys his last incarnation by going over the top in the British Army during World War I.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've got to admire your balls ... maybe later 11 July 2007
By Graham
Format:Audio CD
The whole series is captured here on three CD's, two episodes per CD each split into around 8 seperate tracks.

Its superb stuff and laugh out loud funny. I was worried before buying about whether this would be a good enough substitute for the brilliant TV series but you needn't worry. It works really well. Since you are robbed of your eyes (so to speak) then you listen that much harder to the dialogue and I felt that I picked up more of the gems served up by the writers.

All the original cast are here. I wasn't bothered that the audience laughter is captured on the CD's - I was usually laughing over the top of them anyway.

Recommended as a way of killing those commuting hours or cheering yourself up or whatever. This was my favourite of the Blackadder series but the set is so good, I'm looking at getting all the others.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Good luck, everyone." 26 Dec 2013
By R. Wood TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Disregarding what was (in my view) a rubbish first series, Blackadder was a sitcom of perfection, one-episode after the next throughout three succeeding series, a one-shot for Comic Relief (`The Cavalier Years') and a Christmas Special (`Blackadder's Christmas Carol'). All throughout history, incarnations of nasty & brilliant Edmund Blackadder and his foul, dim-witted slave Baldrick would appear, leaving their infallible mark age-after-age.

For the fourth & final series of the Blackadder Dynasty, writers Richard Curtis & Ben Elton provided a difficult historical premise in World War One. Obviously, the Great War 1914-1918 is nothing to make fun of, and the idea of making a sitcom based on the subject was surely a high-risk concept.

But Elton & Curtis clearly knew what they were doing with their portrayal of life in this dark & despairing time. Their humour for Blackadder Goes Forth was timelessly sharp & hilarious, but what speaks volumes about Ben & Richard's writing is how throughout this series, they clearly emphasise their thoughts & feelings against war, and how they make sure to honour the brave sacrifices made by all those who gave their lives for their families, king & country.

Aside from handling the setting with the utmost respect & care, this final series of Blackadder scores the traditional high-points for it's incarnation of the title character, and the situation he finds himself in. Here, Captain Edmund Blackadder (impeccably portrayed as ever by Rowan Atkinson) is in command of the front line on the Western Front. `Assisting' him in the trenches are his second-in-command - the honourable, loyal & stupid Lieutenant George (Hugh Laurie) - and Private Baldrick (Tony Robinson).

Like all good humor base on an alternative version of the truth. Who can forget Baldricks famous "War Poems" and his exceptionally good coffee....hmm delicious !!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Blackadder Goes Forth 15 Aug 2012
By Jaguar
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The recordings are very good with good sound quality and I enjoyed listening to the CDs. However, the packaging was very poor and as a result the plastic case was damaged beyond repair. Very disappointing.
