I still love this - and no, Darcy hasn't a thing to do with it! ;) It's a Blackadder thing of course.

I'm not sure if I know what you mean, Madeleine, but Colin Firth is playing Shakespeare in the clip, the one who Rowan Atkinson biffs on the nose. Or am I missing something here? :confused:

I've just watched the Blackadder clip...brilliant, hadn't seen that before. I have to admit I'm with Edmund, there were many times at school when I think we could all have thumped Shakespeare :rolleyes:
