We assume Episode 14 will be the Savage Songs special, as the title ‘Wicked World’ seems best for a series finale, finishing with Episode 15.

Rotten Rulers: Coming Soon!

Next Monday HH airs their Rotten Rulers special, a highlight special with the best sketches about each ruler. Here’s the line up:

Starring:

Rowan Atkinson as Henry VIII
Kathryn Drysdale as Cleopatra
Kevin Eldon as William the Conqueror
Simon Farnaby as George III
Sarah Hadland as Queen Victoria
Jim Howick as Napoleon and Winston Churchill
Lawry Lewin as Oliver Cromwell
Ben Miller as King John
Jessica Ransom as Mary, Queen of Scots
Tom Rosenthal as Alfred the Great
Lorna Watson as Boudica

The episode also includes King John’s epic rap battle from the very first episode-the series really is rapping up!

Tricky Queen Vicky: Top 10!

Our last female character was played wonderfully by Sarah Hadland and has taught us a lot! Here our our top 10 pictures from the episode!

That now leaves us with one more rotten ruler: ‘Orrible Oliver Cromwell played by Lawry Lewin-but first, who was your main favourite female actor this series?

After Cromwell, the three specials begin:

We know very little about the specials coming up. Episode 13: Rotten Rulers could either be a highlights sketch, or feature new sketches-all we know is it features all the main actors of the Series. Episode 14: Savage Songs will be like any Savage Songs Specials, but how Rattus will present we do not know! And the series finale, Wicked World, we don’t have a clue about. We think it might highlight the horrible happenings around the world seen in this Series, or the new cast might work together to produce all new sketches. From that we can only assume there will be a grand song to close the Series off.

‘Orrible Oliver Cromwell: Coming Soon!

Coming on Monday 3rd August will be the 12th episode in Series 6, with Lawry Lewin playing the last of our 12 rulers-Oliver Cromwell-and what a line up we have!

Definite:

1. The Cruel Necessities: Song about how Cromwell took over several parliaments, and dealt with Charles I-parody of the Jungle Book song ‘The Bear Necessities’.

2. History’s Craziest Fools-King Charles I: Mr. H is back for the last crazy fool of the series, Charles I. We’ll see how he annoyed his country and parliament, and ended up quite possibly known as the worst King ever to ruler Britain!

3. Word Battles: The writers of the era, William Shakespeare and Milton, go head to head in a similar style to Carroll and Dickens in their Victorian Word Battle from Series 5!

Series 6 opening sequence-Charles + Civil War3

4. Chatty Death: Death winds up his last star, and how his ruthless reign in parliament resulted in the English restoration.

Possibilities:

1. Battle of the Day: The English Civil War: It’s a big possibility that Geoff and Jamie return once more to teach about England’s only Civil War.

2. Animation: It’s quite possible that Martin Brown has drawn, another sketch for Horrible Histories about the Civil War, and Puritan Soldiers’ strange names!

Cruel Cromwell3

3. Historical: There’s been no hints, but it could be possible that we take a look at Stuart doctors or another Grand Design.

All will be revealed on Monday 3rd August at 5PM on CBBC! After that we have the 13th/15 episode: Rotten Rulers. All the rulers we’ve looked at from the Series will be starring, but whether in a new sketch, or in a highlights special showing some of their best sketches is unknown. After that it will probably the Savage Songs special before the finale: Wicked World-exciting!

Finally, more savage secrets: Learn some facts about Churchill: He learned how to lay bricks to help build his house, he often planned his famous speeches while in the bath and he performed an impression of a gorilla! If this comes up as a quiz Question, you now know the answer-all three! Also in that episode, we view his early life in ‘Diary of a Winston Kid’ and we see Americans during the war print a picture of Hitler on 300, 000 toilet rolls and airdrop them over France and Italy! (Source: HH Magazine). In Cruel Cromwell’s episode, there might be an animated sketch about the Civil War, and Chopped Charles I will appear on Histories Craziest Fools. Plus, in Vile Victoria’s sketch she will be singing a Bollywood song about her reign over India! And in one of those episodes Sanjeev Bhaskar will play Ghandi in a “hilarious cameo” (educational sketch).
