With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we thought we’d share some of the most romantic moments in Blackadder. As you might expect, there’s a few unusual ones in there!
The most romantic moments in Blackadder
It’s soon Valentine’s Day, and we’ve put together 5 of the most romantic Blackadder moments to put you in the mood for love! Let us know what you think!
1. Baldrick kisses Percy
In Bells, the first episode of the second series of Blackadder, Baldrick kindly plays the role of bridesmaid to Bob, who didn’t have any childhood girl chums, as her family was so poor. Percy strolls in, and of course gets immediately confused, demanding a kiss…
2. Sausage Time
In Amy and Amiability from the third series of Blackadder, Prince George has to woo the Mysterious Northern beauty, Miss Amy Hardwood in order to get his hands on some of her father’s wealth. His attempts at creating poetry are worthy of any Valentine’s Card!

However, when Blackadder breaks news of Georgina’s death…
4. Blackadder hooks up with Nurse Mary
There’s a number of touching moments in General Hospital, when Blackadder hooks up with Nurse Mary. Some of the flirting for example is particularly funny.
Edmund: Yes, why not? When this madness is finished, perhaps we could go cycling together, take a trip down to the Old Swan at Henley and go for a walk in the woods.
Mary: Yes, or we could just do it right now on the desk.
Perhaps the funniest moment though, is when Nurse Mary asks if Blackadder has someone special in his life.
5. Blackadder explains what life was like without the Queen
Perhaps the most romantic line ever mentioned in Blackadder, comes in the episode Chains from the second series. Edmond has escaped being imprisoned in a commode, and returns to the royal court. The Queen asks if he had missed her:
