The most gripping sitcom since 1380

Sundays from 2 February 8.30pm Channel 208

Rowan Atkinson stars as Edmund, The Duke of Edinburgh, in the first season of the hit series created by Atkinson and Richard Curtis (fun fact: it was co-produced by the BBC and Australia’s Seven Network). Set in 1485, the series is an alternative history in which Richard III wins the Battle Of Bosworth Field, but is accidentally killed by Edmund and succeeded by Richard IV (played by Brian Blessed), who is coincidentally Edmund’s father. Edmund joins forces with Lord Percy Percy (Tim McInnerny) and Baldrick (Tony Robinson) to try and seize the throne.
