Screen print inspired by General Sir Anthony Cecil Hogmanay Melchett, KBE. Stephen Fry’s iconic Great War General from Blackadder Goes Forth. Proof of how much character a comic actor must bring to a script in order to really bring it to life. The ‘Baaah!‘ sound of approval that Melchett made was one that Stephen Fry lent to the character.
It seemed to make sense in the centenary year (and month) of The Great War to pay tribute to Blackadder Goes Forth. A show that achieved the perfect balance of humility and humour with a tricky subject matter. A true testament to the best of British Comedy!
