Series: 2 Episode: 2
First broadcast on 16 January 1986.
The Queen appoints Blackadder as the new Lord High Executioner - a job in which no-one survives more than a week.
Blackadder starts badly by executing a chap called Farrow two days early, so as to give him and the rest of the team half the week off.
The problem is that the widow (sorry, wife) wants to see her husband one last time, and then the Queen annoyingly decides to pardon Farrow altogether. Fortunately, Baldrick has executed the wrong bloke, so disaster is averted. Or is it?
Blackadder: Let's try again. If I have two beans and then I add two more beans, what does that make?

Blackadder: To you, Baldrick, the Renaissance was just something that happened to other people, wasn't it?
