** Yet another was ''The Red Adder'', with Blackadder being a secret policeman in Russia during the Revolution. It would turn out that by the end of the series, he'd be doing the same job only in a different uniform.

* RealitySubtext: Creator/StephenFry's homosexuality is amusingly alluded (and PlayedForLaughs) to by some of his characters' actions: ** Lord Melchett (''Blackadder II'') had a very... close relationship with Flossie the sheep. ** His interpretation of Lord Wellington (''BA The Third'') is pretty much CampStraight. ** General Melchett's "one true love" was Speckled Jim, his pet pigeon. In another episode he falls for George's drag act, and considers a woman's "drag act" a disaster.

* WordOfGod: Turnips are mentioned a lot, from the first series on. In series three, they become Baldrick's only ambition in life. The creators say this is because someone confused them with parsnips, which explains the joke about their shape in series two.
