Patsy as Nursie from Blackadder


Nursie was a recurring character in the second series of Blackadder. Played brilliantly by Patsy Byrne (13 July 1933 – 17 June 2014), she came across as slightly naive, a little crazy, and almost cartoon like. Treating Queeny as though she was still a child, Nursie had some memorable quotes and moments from the show.

The Best Nursie Moments

Here’s some of the most outstanding moments featuring Nursie from the second series of Blackadder.

shouted : “It’s a boy, it’s a boy!”. And somebody said “but it
hasn’t got a winkle!”. And then I said “A boy without a winkle? God be praised, it is a miracle. A boy without a winkle!” And then Sir Thomas More pointed out that a boy without a winkle is a girl. And everyone was really disappointed.
