I was taken to see this on a school trip when I was about 14 or 15. At the time, I didn't appreciate it at all and remember writing a very scathing essay when I got back to school about all the people who looked like Baldrick (yes, Blackadder was popular at the time) and thinking I was very clever. I wasn't.
