The Black Adder | The Foretelling

The first of six horrible situation tragedies to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the accession of Richard III. From out of the swirling mists of the Dark Ages comes a lone horseman, cursed from youth by a deformed haircut and sporting a particularly evil pair of tights.
