I had the accompanying book signed by Tony Robinson last year when he visited our town.

He sounds like an interesting person. I am planning to send him a signed copy of my book. He is going in my dedication because of his line, "I have a cunning plan, my lord."

My grandson, who was 12 at the time, said to him 'I have a cunning plan'! I bet he gets that all the time, but he laughed and said 'Oh you have, have you?'.

He was a really nice bloke, very chatty and friendly.

if you listen carefully he never says the word cunning. blackadder makes a sarky comment with the word cunning in it. :)

Oh he does! There are 4 series, and i distinctly remember him saying "I have a cunning plan" in 'Blackadder goes Forth' when he's talking about the bullet that he's carving his name onto!

I agree, I've watched all of the Blackadder series at various times and 'cunning plan' crops up several times each series!

I love Blackadder and I have a friend we nicknamed Bernard after Nursie in the second series!

ps

What's your worst job? Mine was chicken packing. I got the raw plucked chicken and bent it with the aid of an elastic band so that it could sit on the tray before being wrapped for the supermarket!

My worst job? Working 6:30 P.M. to 1:30 A.M. in a bank. Some interesting people, but the work was a drag.
