Product description

Review

"a rather elegant overview of Eighties British TV comedy… If you have any interest in comedy, you will love this book … [Roberts’] research has been assiduous, his judgments are sound and his puppyish enthusiasm encouraged his interviewees to give their best. Unlike Baldrick’s cunning plans, this one seems to have worked" (Marcus Berkman Daily Mail)

"This really is the full history… for true buffs, this is not to be missed" (Press Association)

"lively, warm-hearted" (TLS)

"The True History of the Black Adder is a brilliant read for any fan of Edmund Blackadder, as well as a great introduction into the history of the contemporary comedy scene" (BookGeeks)

"An almost perfect history of the greatest British sitcom there has ever been" (comedy.co.uk)

Book Description

To mark the thirtieth anniversary of the first pilot episode of The Black Adder this is the complete history of the series with the co-operation of writers Richard Curtis and Ben Elton, producer John Lloyd, cast and crew. Including hitherto unseen material including extracts from a previously unseen and unproduced Christmas special.
