It's Millennium Eve and Blackadder is hosting a dinner party for a few select friends, Lady Elizabeth ('Miranda Richardson' ), Viscount George (Hugh Laurie), Archbishop Melchett (Stephen Fry), and Archbishop Darling (T...展开im McInnerny). Baldrick (Tony Robinson) devises yet another of his infamous cunning plans to help his ever greedy master Edmund Blackadder (Rowan Atkinson) con money from his gullible friends. The pair build a "time machine" from empty cereal packets and place bets with their friends as to when in history they will travel, retrieving various artifacts from their travels as proof, items which Blackadder already owns! However, in a strange twist of fate the time machine actually works and the pair are thrown back in history initially to the Jurassic period. Gradually the pair start to return to their own time stopping off at various famous times in history such as Sherwood Forest and the Battle of Waterloo but will they make it home?
