It is Christmas eve, and Blackadder’s generosity means that he and his trusty man-servant Baldrick have the leanest of Christmases to look forward to. Visited by a Christmas Spirit, on his way home from giving spooky messages to the mean and miserly, Ebenezer is treated to hilarious visions of his ancestors’ notoriously bad behaviour, as well as a vision of his descendants’ future!
