comment What is this sketch by Rowan Atkinson?
Except the twist is that Blackadder is a kind generous person, who is taken advantage of by everyone, and ends up giving away all his Christmas dinner, presents & money. Once the ghost shows him his ancestors, he decides to become a real bastard instead, unfortunately this coincides with Queen Victoria & Prince Albert visiting incognito.

comment British tv comedy skit show where an actor plays a blackface vagabond
Surreal and creepy British comedy makes me think of The League of Gentlemen imdb.com/title/tt0184135/?ref_=fn_al_tt_2 , but I can't remember them doing blackface.

comment What is the symbolism of eating Chinese take-out in a scene?
Whenever I saw it in movies/on tv, it seemed like a shorthand for being relaxed, casual (eg eating straight out of boxes), and having fun with a group of friends. It seems to be quite an American thing, at least from my Kiwi viewpoint. (I think only in the last 5-10 years I have seen Chinese food being sold in fold-up boxes, otherwise it comes in plastic trays, in my local area anyway.) It seems people have Chinese food delivered to eat at home, while burgers are eaten while sitting down in a shop. Hot dogs = community occasions, kebabs = only while drunk.

She doesn't die in a home robbery but by falling into a flooded stream while crossing it on a swing rope.

comment Why does Mycroft meet John in so many different locations?
At least one location was used for a laugh: Battersea Power Station. [...] Ostensibly, they are here because the dilapidated early 20th-century grandeur of the power station – with its glowing walnut parquet floors, 20ft windows and rows of clockwork chrome dials – makes one of the most exquisite TV location-shoot interiors in Britain. In reality, however, it’s hard to shake the suspicion everyone’s here because Moffat and Gatiss could not resist the lure of a single one-liner: summoned to Battersea by Mycroft, Watson notes, drily, “He’s got a power complex.” (Caitlin Moran)

comment Do the Doctors in the Doctor Who series identified themselves well?
Do you mean, did the various incarnations of the Doctor make it clear to humans that they weren't human? I believe they certainly never tried to hide it.
