Please let it be true

Rowan Atkinson gives us hope:

Rowan Atkinson says a fifth season of hit comedy series Blackadder could be on the cards.

Four seasons of the show ran between 1983 and 1989 and won over fans thanks to Atkinson’s sarcasm and inventive putdowns of his dimwitted sidekick Baldrick.

Blackadder also made stars out of Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie and Miranda Richardson and has regularly been voted one of the best British sitcoms of all time.

Fans have long given up hope of a fifth season, but Atkinson told ITV’sDaybreak show in the UK that he hadn’t ruled out making another series.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
