Dickens' classic tale of kindness, truth and virtue is completely ruined by having a member of the Blackadder family involved. Ebenezer Blackadder is a decent, kind and generous human being - until he receives a visit from the Spirit of Christmas who shows him famous Blackadders from the Elizabethan and Regency period, along with his Space Age descendent who becomes Ruler of the Universe. Stuffed with deeply horrible people, and groaning with cartloads of seasonal bottom jokes, Blackadder's Christmas Carol manages to squeeze everything into a huge pie of entertainment which will satisfy everyone. And for second helpings, The Cavalier Years is set during the Civil War, in which Lord Edmund Blackadder tries to remain faithful to King Charles despite the fact that he's about to have his head cut off by bottom-breath Baldrick.1 CD. 1 hr 1 min.
