Tony RobinsonTony Robinson (born August 15, 1946) is a British television comedy actor and political campaigner. He is presenter of the vox-pop archaeology television series, Time Team and similar archaeological and historical programmes.
He came to prominence for his role in the British situation comedy Blackadder as Edmund Blackadder's disgusting man-servant/batman Baldrick. In the first series he was quite intelligent but subsequently his character evolved into that of an intellectually challenged buffoon. His catchphrase in this programme was, "I have a cunning plan."
He also played the Sherriff of Nottingham in another comedy TV series, Maid Marian and her Merry Men, which he also wrote.
