Edmund Blackadder is amused to learn that his Scottish cousin McAdder has arrived in London, once again determined to wreak havoc and break hearts.

Written by Murray Chapman

Errors and Explanations Edit

Internet Movie DatabaseEdit

  • Although King George III of Great Britain was also Elector (later king) of Hanover, he was more British than German. George probably spoke English without an accent since he was born in England and never visited Germany. He could have picked up an accent from his parents.
  • Several times Blackadder refers to the Duke of Wellington as "the Iron Duke". At the time, he hadn't been given that nickname. It could have been a private nickname that Blackadder had for him, which became publicly associated with the Duke at a later date.
