The Black Adder - Remastered 'Ultimate' DVDs for Rowan Atkinson's Hilarious Series 1-4, Plus Specials

Available from the BBC, separately or as a collected set, this October

Posted by David Lambert
    Rowan Atkinson is deliciously twisted as the comic villain, Edmund Blackadder, in the enormously popular comedy series. Follow Blackadder in hysterical send-ups of the Middle Ages, the Elizabethan age, the Regency period, and World War I. This special edition contains new exclusive interviews and audio commentaries , making it a must have for all BlackAdder fans.
The BBC and Warner Home Video have announced that on October 20th they will release Black Adder - The Ultimate Edition: Remastered. This 6-DVD set running 833 minutes will include all four series, and two fan-favorite specials as well:
  1. The Black Adder (1983) - Episodes 1-6
  2. Blackadder II (1986) - Episodes 1-6
  3. Blackadder the Third (1987) - Episodes 1-6
  4. Blackadder Goes Forth (1989) - Episodes 1-6
  5. Blackadder: The Specials
    • Blackadder's Christmas Carol (1988): Christmas Eve, 1850. In the reign of good Queen Vic, there stood, in Dumpling Lane in old London town, the Moustache Shoppe of one Ebenezer Blackadder - the kindest and loveliest man in all England. That is until the Spirit of Christmas shows up and introduces him to the ways of his loathsome ancestors...
    • Blackadder - Back and Forth: Milennium Special (1999): Many great dynasties, strong and brave, have played a part in shaping Britain's heritage. The Blackadders are not one of them. From cowards to cads and back again, the Blackadders have managed to seriously lower the integrity of every era through which they have wended their serpentine way. The Blackadder cast returns after a ten-year absence for this special. The new 21st century Lord Blackadder and his scabby, but loyal, servant Baldrick wreak havoc as they tumble through the past in a time machine...with disastrous consequences.
Black Adder - The Ultimate Edition: Remastered will cost $79.98 SRP. These newly re-polished episodes are presented in full frame video, with English Stereo sound and English subtitles. Extras are known to include Deleted Scenes for Blackadder II, plus the interviews and commentaries mentioned in the studio description at the top, and possibly more besides.

For those that prefer it, the five titles listed above will be available separately on the same date, costing $19.98 SRP for each. Below you'll see a large look at the cover art for The Ultimate Edition, followed by smaller looks at the packaging for Series 1-4, and the separate release of The Specials:
