* OutOfCharacterMoment: In "The Archbishop", Edmund tries to avoid taking his latest job. [[Creators/BrianBlessed Richard IV]], [[NoIndoorVoice whose usual target volume is "drown out nearby jet engines"]], very calmly and quietly tells Edmund that if he tries to weasel out of this, "I will do to you what God did to the sodomites". [[TranquilFury It's much more effective]].

** Blackadder's main objective over the course of each series always relates very much to the time in which he lives. In the first series (medieval times) he wants to take over the throne. In the second (Elizabethan) he is trying to wed Queen Elizabeth. In the third (the Industrial Revolution) he wants to make more money and in the fourth (World War I) he just wants to get out of the trenches.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: In "Head", Nursie mentions how she put ointment on Queenie's sister after her head was cut off. Except that would have been Mary I of England, who was not beheaded, but died of natural causes. The one who was beheaded was her cousin, Mary, Queen of Scots. However, it's very possible that Nursie just got the two mixed up, especially since Ludwig correctly says in "Chains" that it was Mary, Queen of Scots who lost her head.
