Blackadder II is the second series of the BBC sitcom Blackadder,[1] written by Richard Curtis and Ben Elton, which aired from 9 January 1986 to 20 February 1986. The series is set in England during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I (15581603), and sees the principal character, Edmund, Lord Blackadder, as a Tudor courtier attempting to win the favour of the Queen while avoiding execution by decapitation, a fate that befell many of her suitors.

The series saw a number of significant changes from the format of The Black Adder, notably Ben Elton replacing Rowan Atkinson as the second writer, filming in studio sets, rather than on location, the introduction of the more familiar Machiavellian "Blackadder" character and a less intelligent Baldrick.
Episode 1
Blackadder employs a young man called "Bob" (who is actually a woman in disguise who ran away to get a legitimate job after her father suggested she become a prostitute) whom he finds himself attracted to, much to his dismay. Once he discovers that "Bob" is actually Kate, he plans to marry her, only to have her elope with his friend and best man, Lord Flashheart. Guest-starring Gabrielle Glaister as Kate and Rik Mayall as Lord Flashheart.
Episode 2
Blackadder is made Lord High Executioner and decides to change the execution schedule in order to give himself more free time. It means he orders the execution of one of convicted men earlier than he should have. Unfortunately this brings him into conflict with the Queen's wishes.
Episode 3
In the wake of Sir Walter Raleigh's triumphant return from America, and in an attempt to impress the Queen, Blackadder plans a voyage of his own around the Cape of Good Hope. Guest-starring Simon Jones as Raleigh and Tom Baker as Captain Redbeard Rum.
Episode 4
Blackadder is pursued by the baby-eating Bishop of Bath and Wells over an unpaid loan and is forced to formulate ingenious ways to make money. Guest-starring Ronald Lacey as the Bishop.
Episode 5
With the promise of a large inheritance in mind, Blackadder attempts to impress his fanatically Puritanical aunt and uncle, while simultaneously attempting to win a drinking competition. Guest-starring Miriam Margolyes as Lady Whiteadder and Hugh Laurie as Simon 'Farters' Partridge.
Episode 6
Blackadder and Melchett are kidnapped by the German Prince Ludwig, a murderous master of disguise, and held to ransom. Guest-starring Hugh Laurie as Mad Prince Ludwig.
