Ben Elton joined Richard Curtis on scripting duties for Blackadder II...the character was given a brain and the sharpest of tongues, and everything changed, allowing Rowan Atkinson to deliver one of the great comedy performances in the role.PopMattersNovember 28, 2018
Given the caliber of these performers, one might be tempted to put the show's renewed success down to that alone. But you also have to figure in the fact that Curtis was now writing with Ben Elton.Den of GeekNovember 28, 2018
