It is Christmas Eve 1850, and the kindly Ebenezer Blackadder spends the festive season being taken advantage of by his relatives, his neighbours and even Queen Victoria. When he is visited by the Spirit of Christmas, he gains an insight into the dastardly deeds of his ancestors, and starts to wonder if he would be better off following in their footsteps. Comic reversal of the classic Dickens tale, starring Rowan Atkinson, Tony Robinson, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, Robbie Coltrane and Miranda Richardson
