Later in the episode, things are less formal and we get to see some classic Darrow hand-acting.

Joe Dredd
Here we see Paul leaping out of the gig. And wearing a hat.

The eagle-eyed amongst you might notice the tiny, unhelpful "Hull 1 Mile" sign in the background. Presumably they made it really small so as not to confound passing motorists?

Joe Dredd
Here's Paul before some horses. His role in the first series also incidentally involved a horse.


RIP Paul and thank you for everything. You were brilliant.
Joe Dredd
I've been told to even things up by giving Gareth equal time in a costume drama.*

* This is a fib.

David Copperfield, BBC 1974

What a rip-roaring cast we have in this one. Mr Micawber is played by Arthur "Capt Mainwaring" Lowe. He's not the only one from Dad's Army in the show, Edward "The Verger" Sinclair is in it too, as Mr Barkiss. Not to mention both David & Michael Troughton, Anthony "Almost Bodie" Andrews, Martin Jarvis (impersonating Slave from B7), Patricia Routledge, Timothy Bateson, and Pat Keen among others!

Young David comes home to find his widowed mother being courted by a certain Mr Murdstone.

Young David doesn't take to Mr Murdstone, and the feeling is mutual.


And here's Gareth in a tall hat.
Joe Dredd
David is encouraged to drink a toast... to being hoodwinked.

Joe Dredd
...which amuses Murdstone greatly.

Later David returns home to some unhappy news.

Joe Dredd
David's mother has married Mr Murdstone. Murdstone has brought his weaned-on-a-vinegar-bottle sister to manage the household affairs.

Joe Dredd
His new wife objects but Murdstone overrules her.

Joe Dredd
Unable to recite his lesson, David is taken away for punishment.

Joe Dredd
Scared and upset, David bites Murdstone on the hand when Murdstone tries to cane him...

Joe Dredd
... possibly resulting in a more vicious caning.


(Apologies for posting so many pictures. I get caught up in the story.)
Joe Dredd
David is sent away to school, but has to come home again to learn his mother has passed away. On top of it all, his beloved friend Peggotty is dismissed.


Here's a quick glance of Mr Micawber.
Joe Dredd
But what the Dickens?! Who is this bonus B7 star appearing as Red Riding Hood?


Why, it's ... Servalan. I think she tucked that cloak away to reuse on Beta V.
Joe Dredd
Yes, it's Jackson Pearce as Rosa Dartle.

(That's a scar under her nose, by the way.)

Joe Dredd
Blake & Servalan in the same show!

Paul Darrow got a name check on LBC's A-Z of 2019 last night. Sadly the host didn't seem to remember Blake's 7 though.
