Hmmm, the final glance between Avon and Cally... was does that mean?


I've always interpreted it as a silent recognition that for better or for worse, they, on that ship, are all they've got. And some gratitude for that.


That's a good explanation for Cally except Avon never smiles back, in fact he looks quite hostile

Friendship ... understanding, I never viewed it as romantic Angry


How come they had a lover's tiff in "The Keeper" then Grin Grin


Don't forget Children of Auron and there was certainly flirting going on in "City"

That's a good sign. If Avon smiles, you're really in trouble Grin Grin

I think for Avon, it's the initiation of the look and the length of the eye contact maybe? I never saw it as a hostile look; a little inscrutable, perhaps...but that's Avon. If he smiled back, I'd have felt unsettled.Smile

In 'city', yes, love their interaction - "I'll scare her less" Smile

Enjoyed the rewatch very much, thanks everyone! A marvellous stamp left by Tanith Lee.

Lovely rewatch. If only they'd dressed Jan in some decent clothes the rest of the time, we lads might not spend all our time talking about Jenna and Soolin.

Well yes, I never really thought of it like that before, now it seems to have a different meaning....

Been really lovely reading this thread and seeing so many people enjoying "Sarcophagus". I've barely had chance to watch any of the DVDs since they first came out, but I was so sad to hear the news about Tanith Lee last week that I made sure I found an hour on Sunday to put "Sarcophagus" in the player because of the very fond memories I had of the show, and how much it meant to me when I first saw it in 1980. I remember playing the soundtrack cassette of it again and again (with Dudley Simpson's rich score, Josette Simon's song and all that snappy put-down laden dialogue) and then making sure that the 1981 repeat was one of the few episodes that I was able to retain on Betamax.

Watching it again, bits of it looked rather quaint ... but endearingly so. There's something still very solid and potent about VT studio drama from this era. Good narrative, and something a bit more for the regulars to do ... indeed quite a bit more depth to the characters than I'd been used to which is probably why I adored the script so much when I first experienced it. It was so outstandingly different and imaginative in structure, and the rebirth notion was one that I remember enjoying in the "Drinking Sapphire Wine" novels; certainly Tanith brought a lot of the more imaginative aspects of her fantasy writing to enrich the existing science-fantasy format of the series. Lovely performance from Jan Chappell in particular, but really a piece showing the cast at their best. Beautifully directed and surprisingly well lit for a BBC studio show of the time as well.

It was a very happy experience to go back to this, my favourite episode of this amazing little series. And I hope that, if time permits, I might get chance to revisit some of the other adventures too. So a lot of happy memories, and quite lovely to see so many other people enjoying it again as well and ensuring that it'll never be forgotten.

All the best

Andrew
