In the penultimate episode of Blackadder the Third there were again two principal guests – the effervescent Miranda Richardson as Amy Hardwood and Warren Clarke as her father. Roger Avon and Barbara Horne appeared briefly as the Duke of Cheapside and his amorous daughter.
Blackadder the Third was written by the said Ben Elton and by Richard Curtis and all six episodes were directed by the returning Mandie Fletcher. Once again, John Lloyd produced the series and Howard Goodall was responsible for the music.
Amy and Amiability was released in 1987. It is 30 minutes long and originally aired on the BBC. Blackadder the Third is sadly not available on Netflix, but a remastered set of the whole series is available on DVD around the world (Region 1) (Region 2).

For us American followers, 10,000 Pounds Sterling in 1815 (?) would be equivalent to $888,706.75 US in 2017
Following Brexit it’s worth around £8,000 here.
On another note I’m really looking forward to what you guys have to say about the Top Kipper Salesman and Head of Clan McAdder when he finally arrives.
Wait no longer!
