The Blackadder Podcast is a fortnightly show looking back at each episode of the classic BBC comedy. From the team that brought you the Columbo Podcast and the Jonathan Creek Podcast, Gerry and Iain look at the stories, characters, cast and trivia that have made Blackadder one of the BBC's most popular series of all time.
Introducing the Poker Face Podcast
Gerry and Iain return to the original Columbo Podcast feed this week to begin a ten-week run looking at the first season of Poker Face, a new drama with strong influences from the Lieutenant’s investigations.

Welcome to the Blackadder Podcast
From the team behind the Columbo Podcast and the Jonathan Creek Podcast comes the Blackadder Podcast, an affectionate retrospective of the iconic BBC comedy series. The show will look at each series of Blackadder, as well as the special episodes, beginning with Blackadder II (don't worry, we'll circle around to The Black Adder in due course!).
Bells – Episode 1
Bells was the first episode of Blackadder II as the show returned after the two-and-a-half year hiatus that followed The Black Adder. This series is set in Elizabethan London and re-introduced audiences to Rowan Atkinson and Tony Robinson in their now-familiar roles as Blackadder and Baldrick. In this podcast Gerry and Iain take a look at the plot, characters, actors and others involved in the creation of Bells as well as some more general thoughts on the series.
Head – Episode 2
Head was the second episode of Blackadder II and features a new course of employment for Lord Blackadder and a couple of cracking impersonations. In this podcast Gerry and Iain take a look at life working on death row in Elizabethan London.
Potato – Episode 3
Potato was the third episode of Blackadder II and features an epic voyage of discovery, a remarkable historical figure and a unique, if somewhat eccentric, captain. In this podcast Gerry and Iain take a look at fine wine from distant shores and other such riches.
Money – Episode 4
Money was the fourth episode of Blackadder II and features Edmund's increasingly desperate endeavours to raise enough cash to settle a debt owed to the Bank of the Black Monks. In this podcast Gerry and Iain take a look at a delicious piece of blackmail.
Good look back at a britcom classic.
I hadn't watched the show in years, and it was great to see them again, and hear the always amusing analysis by Gerry and Iain. For the GENIUS idea of beginning with series two, and then going back to series one later, they deserve this five star rating, and more.
Blackadder Major Star
The show and host are awesome.
The Boys (and Sausages) are Back in Town
I was a big fan — if a latecomer — to Gerry and Iain’s Columbo podcast. In fact, I just today listened to the final episode where they mentioned their new ventures with Jonathan Creek and Blackadder. Upon hearing that, I raced to my iTunes Store and downloaded “Bells”. Lovely to hear you again, fellas, especially as you’re viewing one of my favorite shows of all time. (Now if I can just figure out how to watch Creek here in the States…) @GlenErikH
