A Fair Trial


‘Come on. Get this over with in five minutes, and we can get a spot of lunch. The court is now in session, Sir Anthoney Cecil Hogmanay Melchett in the chair. The case before us is that of the Crown versus Captain Edmund Blackadder, alias the Flanders Pigeon Murderer. Oh, hand me the black cap, will you – I’ll be needing that.’
