Blackadder's Christmas Carol | [Richard Curtis, Ben Elton]

Blackadder's Christmas Carol

Dickens' classic tale of kindness, truth, and virtue is utterly ruined here by having a member of the Blackadder family involved. Stuffed with deeply horrible people and groaning with cartloads of seasonal bottom jokes, it manages to squeeze a Victorian Blackadder and his Elizabethan, Regency, and Space Age relatives into a huge pie of entertainment which will satisfy everyone, unless you're a beadle, an orphan, or a long-dead member of the Royal Family.

This collection also includes The Cavalier Years in which Lord Edmund Blackadder and bottom-breath Baldrick remain faithful to King Charles who awaits execution, or do they?

    "Very Entertainig!"

    Dicken's classic Christmas tale is turned upside down in this episode of Blackadder. Ebeneezer Blackadder is an upstanding citizen who helps everyone even if it means his own ruin. But one fateful night he is visited by a ghost...
    Very entertaining!

    "Fantastic festive audio book"

    Blackadder transfers so well to being an audio book the opportunity to acquire Blackadder's Christmas Carol was too much to resist. The story is well known, a 'good' Edmund Blackadder who becomes bad through the visions of a Christmas Ghost. It is very, very funny and very well acted. If you have an ipod and still want your blackadder fix you can do so via this brilliant audio story.
