Storyline

After years of futile trench warfare, General Melchett gives the order for the "big push": a suicidal charge across the battlefield towards hundreds of German machine guns. Desperate to avoid participating, Captain Blackadder hatches a plan to convince his superiors that he has gone insane and therefore cannot go into combat. Written by Murray Chapman

Trivia

In the last three series of "Blackadder," all of the episodes of a particular series have titles that fit a pattern: all of the episodes of Black-Adder II (1986) have single-word titles; all of the episodes of Black Adder the Third (1987) have titles of the form "X and Y"; the first five episodes of "Blackadder Goes Forth" all have a military rank in their titles. "Goodbyeeee" is the only episode in the last three series that has a title that does not fit the pattern. See more »

The only time I have cried watching TV
12 September 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Seriously, the first time I saw the end scene when the battle fades to grey and to the poppies was the only time I have cried watching TV. Because of the show (and Wilfred Owen's) I now have a tattoo on my upper arm with two rows of barbed wire and poppies and the text "Dulce et Decorum est Pro Patria Mori".

The greatest 30 mins of TV I have ever seen. Nothing comes close. Seriously. This is a programme that takes on the horror of war - it doesn't give in to punchlines and caricatures and doesn't focus on bloody horror. This is the one episode that should be shown to anyone who thinks that British comedy is shallow and pointless.
