Continuity mistake: There is a knock on the front door, and Blackadder tells Baldrick to 'get the door'. Baldrick returns with it, but the front door on the set, still in place, is still visible in the background of the shot.

Beer - S2-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When Blackadder calls for Baldrick and asks for a raw turnip, as Baldrick enters, you can see some shadow moving on the left of the screen. It's not Baldrick's shadow and there's certainly no one else in the room that could make that shadow. (00:13:55)

Revealing mistake: When Queen Elizabeth arrives in disguise, Blackadder welcomes her and is about to open the door to the closet, but you can see the door is being pushed up from the inside, probably by a crew member. (00:16:50)

Continuity mistake: There is a knock on the front door, and Blackadder tells Baldrick to 'get the door'. Baldrick returns with it, but the front door on the set, still in place, is still visible in the background of the shot. The fact that Baldrick knows who was at the door indicates that he's got the right one.

Audio problem: When Blackadder explains to Baldric about what he is not allowed to prepare for dinner Blackadder says "And that means no meat." There is a glitch before he says meat, it may be where they stopped recording before the sentence was finished.

Quotes

Blackadder: I remember Massingbird's most famous case - the Case of the Bloody Knife. A man was found next to a murdered body. He had the knife in his hand, thirteen witnesses had seen him stab the victim and when the police arrived he said 'I'm glad I killed the bastard.' Massingbird not only got him off, he got hom knighted in the New Year's Honours list, and the relatives of the victim had to pay to get the blood washed out of his jacket.

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.
