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.

Factual error: During the theatre play you can see they are using electric stage lights. Nice move for a series plotted almost 300 years ago.

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.

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

Sense and Senility - S3-E4

Factual error: At Ms. Miggins' when she says, "There's ever so much hard work," you can see her wearing a bra under her corset. Bras didn't exist at that time.

Nob and Nobility - S3-E3

Revealing mistake: After Blackadder accidentally kills Smedly with one of the suicide pills, he starts ranting about how useless Smedly is as a hero, because he was dumb enough to fall for the old 'poisoned cup routine.' As he does so, you can see the supposedly dead Smedly behind him, still breathing normally.

Duel and Duality - S3-E6

Deliberate mistake: There are several historical dates wrong in this episode. For a start, Prince George didn't become Prince Regent until 1811, and yet this is set before the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 (as Black Adder gives Wellington some advice on it). Similarly, Wellington didn't get the title "Duke of Wellington" until 1814. Again inconsistent with being pre-Trafalgar.

Duel and Duality - S3-E6

Deliberate mistake: There are a lot of jokes with the name of the book "The Prince and the Pauper." However the book was published in 1881, 51 years after the Prince Regent died.

Revealing mistake: When Blackadder lifts the huge turnip it looks really light. A turnip that size would weight a fair bit.

Revealing mistake: The bomb that is thrown at the Prince explodes before the lit fuse actually burns down far enough.

Casual Person

Duel and Duality - S3-E6

Factual error: When Blackadder has disguised himself as the Prince and is speaking to Wellington, Wellington says, "I have with me here the most recent briefs from my General in the field". Blackadder, deliberately misunderstanding, replies "If you would like to pop them in the laundry basket". Blackadder is referring to the short, tight style of men's modern underwear, known as briefs, which were not invented until the 1930s.

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.
