1. You guys were right. I just went downstairs and found Bunny inside the walls of Fort Bunsworth. Damn and blast! Now I'm going to have to figure out a way of strengthening the defences.

2. It's nice to be able to report that Blackadder II is still very, very funny. What would it cost to assemble that cast today? And, on a sadly quizzical note, whatever happened to Rowan Atkinson? There he was, arguably the funniest man in the English speaking world- and what has he done since?

Johnny English? well yes, quite...

3. I love Rome, but does anybody else? There was a piece in the Guardian this morning calling it a turkey and castigating the BBC for wasting the licence-payers' money. And this seems to be the general opinion. Could I be wrong? No, I don't see how that could possibly be- my critical acumen and good taste are legendary.

1. Ha! I win chocolate!

2. Rumour has it that a new series of Blackadder is in the air, but I don't know how serious it is.

3. I'm becoming disappointed, and have more to write on that issue when I get a chance. But I'm still very glad that it's on, and that people are talking about it, and as a historian will remain fascinated with how it is portraying the Roman world, no matter how inaccurate or artistically lacking the portrayal becomes.

I'm not sure whether a new Blackadder is a good idea or not. It's been 20 years and everyone involved has moved on. Most of them are now pillars of the showbiz establishment.

I'm looking forward to your considered verdict on Rome. Thus far (after only 2 episodes admittedly) it's got me completely hooked.
