CLIPS:

The show ended production in 2013, until the BBC announced its revival less than 2 years later. The show revamped with a new format; each episode would take an in-depth look at a different historical ruler.

A largely new cast and production team assembled and six of Britain's top comedy talents guested as a historical ruler; Lorna Watson as Boudicca, Ben Miller as King John, Kevin Eldon as William the Conqueror, Rowan Atkinson as Henry VIII, Tom Rosenthal as King Alfred and Kathryn Drysdale as Cleopatra. Four original stars reprised their roles from previous series; Simon Farnaby as George III, Jim Howick as Napoleon and Winston Churchill, Sarah Hadland as Queen Victoria and Lawry Lewin as Cromwell. New cast member Jessica Ransom completed the line-up as Mary Queen of Scots.

Although a different format, the show retained much of its identity​, not least with Rattus Rattus returning to host.

Series 6 aired 12 half-hour episodes and 3 highlights specials on CBBC; the first shown in February 2015 to mark the Magna Carta's 800th anniversary and the rest following from May to August 2015.
