The Black Adder, Episode 3 - The Archbishop
When the King's top assassin 'accidentally' kills the Archbishop of Canterbury, Edmund finds himself appointed to the newly vacated role. He quickly learns where his best allegiances lie...
Edmund is made the Archbishop, which has not been a very safe office to hold. It seems that the King doesn't agree with the church, and the landscape is littered with the bodies of former Archbishops.
