Trivia: When Blackadder is explaining how he caught the nurse as the German spy by saying three schools of which only two were great universities, Melchett says "Quite right, Oxford's a right dump." This is an in-joke, as Stephen Fry (who played Melchett) went to Cambridge, and Rowan Atkinson (Blackadder) went to Oxford.
