IT POINTS TO THE VERY CLEAR LESSON THAT BAD GUYS HAVE ALL THE FUN! Ebenezer Blackadder Dickens classic tale of kindness, truth and virtue has now been completely mucked up and ruined by having a member of the Blackadder family involved. Also Baldrick, of course, the man you can rely on to turn a Christmas dinner into a dogs dinner, as long as the dog isnt particularly fussy. Stuffed with deeply horrid people (many of whom are gigantically fat) and groaning with cartloads of seasonal bottom jokes, it manages to squeeze in not only a Victorian Blackadder but also his famous Elizabethan, Regency and Space Age relatives into a huge pie of entertainment that will satisfy all but the most discriminating viewers. Not suitable for beadles, orphans, nieces, or long dead members of the Royal Family.
