Blackadder

Ink and Incapability - S3-E2

Factual error: Dr. Johnson completed his dictionary in 1755, 7 years before the Prince Regent was born (1762). So it's unlikely for him to be asking the Prince for patronage.

Beer - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: Edmund throws his drink into the cupboard under the stairs, leaving a stain on the floor. Yet when he directs Queenie there a few seconds later, the floor is unstained.

Continuity mistake: During the introduction, the snake tries to get away from someone who is supposedly Blackadder. He gets the snake. It's head is above a black tile. There is then a close-up of the snake, Blackadder wags his finger at it. It is now above a white tile.

Show generally

Audio problem: "Blackadder Back and Fourth": Blackadder and his guests are going to the cellar where the time machine is kept. While they are going down the stairs, Blackadder says, "To his exact specifications." However, his mouth is shut and his lips don't move.

Plan D: Private Plane - S4-E4

Revealing mistake: When the Baron punches Baldrick into the cell wall, it wobbles.

Dish and Dishonesty - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: When Baldrick is on the metal spit rotating by the fire, the fire is just a light up board.

Starchild

Dish and Dishonesty - S3-E1

Visible crew/equipment: During the conversation between Blackadder and Baldrick, as Baldrick explains what he spent the £400.000 on, we can see the shadow from the boom mike moving on Blackadder's fur coat.

Mortug

Beer - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Blackadder calls for Baldrick to fetch his incredible strong ale you see Melchett holding his beer down. When it cuts the ale is up at his chest.

Mortug

Beer - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Blackadder, Queenie and Nursey are all comforting Melchett, there is a shot from the side view of Melchett, he is holding his head with his left hand. Then there is a shot from behind Melchett, he still has his hand on his head but when the shot returns to the side, Melchett no longer has his hand on his head.

Chains - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: At the very end of the episode, when it shows you all the dead bodies, you can see Queenie to the right for a few seconds. The dagger she is holding is pointing upwards. Then there is a close-up of Queenie, who then talks back to you in Prince Ludwig's voice, and the dagger she is holding is now pointing downwards.

Plan D: Private Plane - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: When Blackadder's plane is shot, we see the bullets hit the side. In the next shot of plane, not only is the side intact, but fuel is coming out of the bottom.

Chains - S2-E6

Character mistake: At the end of the episode, when Ludwig stands up, he apparently entirely forgets that he's just been run through with a sword.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: "Blackadder Back and Fourth": Blackadder and his guests are going down stairs. Blackadder is first, George is second, Melchett is third, Elizabeth is fourth and Darling is fifth. Blackadder gives his notebook to George. When they arrive downstairs, Melchett and Elizabeth are ahead of George. This is not logical, since the stairs are too narrow and they could not have passed George.

Amy and Amiability - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: When the Shadow shoots at Baldrick to get rid of him, she is aiming over his head but the shot lands at his feet.

Josman

The Black Seal - S1-E6

Visible crew/equipment: In the final shot where Percy and Baldrick have entered the room and said their lines, as it fades to black the crew can be heared applauding.

Nob and Nobility - S3-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When Baldrick is called upon to demonstrate the type of clothing required when visiting France, the edge of the scenery can be seen behind him on his right in the area he enters from.

Beer - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Baldrick brings the turnip to aunt Whiteadder, he is standing right next to her. When it cuts to her eating it, Baldrick is suddenly gone.

Mortug

Money - S2-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When Blackadder is called to the Queen's first practical joke and he says he didn't laugh because his head would fall off, the Queen says, "If you don't start soon, your head will fall off", the boom mike is visible above her head.

Mortug

Bells - S2-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Blackadder is at the Queen's asking for permission to get married and she approves, the boom mike pops into picture several times above her.

Mortug

Plan F: Goodbyeee - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: When Blackadder and the other soldiers are about to go "over the top", you can see two other soldiers standing behind Darling. They are presumably in the upper part of the trench. When Blackadder blows his whistle, you see all the soldiers climb onto their ladders and then start to rush over, side-by-side. In the next shot, when we see the soldiers emerging from the trench in slow motion, the other two soldiers are still back in the trench waiting for Darling to climb out before they move, as the two shots were filmed in two different studios.

Quotes

[Blackadder is selling his house. Mr. And Mrs. Pants are looking around.]
Mrs. Pants: Strange smell.
Blackadder: Yes, that's the servant - he'll be gone.
Mr. Pants: You're really worked out your banter, haven't you?
Blackadder: No, not really. This is a different thing, it's spontaneous and it's called wit.

Trivia

There are in fact two versions of the bonfire scene. Although most countries use the intended censored version (where somebody coughs right as Edmund says the F word) there are a few US editions where you can hear him swearing uninterrupted.
