Black Adder Goes Forth takes place in 1917 during the First World War. Blackadder (Rowan Atkinson) is now a Captain and an inconvenience to his garrison. Stuck uncomfortably close to the Front Line, his prime concern is to dissaude General Melchett (Stephen Fry) from sending him and his men "over the top" of the trenches to a certain death. Baldrick (Tony Robinson) is a Private, loitering in the trenches and acting as Blackadder's batman, while Lt. George Barleigh (Hugh Laurie) is a mad, empty-headed, have-a-go hero, keen to appease Blackadder.

Although there was plenty of fine comedy here, the overall tone of this final Black-Adder series was much darker, more satirical, questioning the madness of war. The final episode - where Blackadder and his men are forced to go over the top - concludes with a frozen frame that dissolves into a field of poppies. It is one of British comedy's most poignant moments.
