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)

Money - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: When Percy is holding the 'Green' in his hands, light of the green reflects on the wall behind Blackadder. However the way Percy is holding the 'green' in front of Blackadder, Blackadder's shadow should be on the wall behind him, but it isn't. It's obvious green lighting is used to light up the back wall.

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.
