The third series of Blackadder episodes (logically telecast in England under the blanket title Black Adder the Third commenced on September 17, 1987, with "Dish and Dishonesty." Inasmuch as the series' time frame has been moved up to the late 18th and early 19th century, star Rowan Atkinson is now cast as the descendent to the two previously seen members of the odious Blackadder clan. As butler and Dogsberry to the Prince Regent (Hugh Laurie), Edmund Blackadder (Atkinson), and his crony Baldrick (Tony Robinson) continue their underhanded efforts to advance themselves in the British Higher Orders. In this episode, Blackadder manages to get Baldrick elected a Member of Parliament -- but only to keep himself from being banished from the Social Register by William Pitt the Younger (Simon Osborne). ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
