Paul plays Captain Barford, a man known to main character Jack Ford's sometimes sponsor, Sir Horatio Manners. Ford served in the army - the series is set just after WW I - and was with Manners' son when he died in the field. Ford is played by James Bolam.

Captain Barford is looking for RSM Ted Chater, who has gone AWOL.

There's a shooting party the next day. Captain Barford and Jack Ford are both invited. Time for some plus-fours and a bracer. And a really big flat cap.

Paul gets to muck about with guns, so he probably enjoyed shooting(!) this scene.

Little does Captain Barford know, but Jack Ford knows Chater from his army days and is helping him hide. Not only that, but Chater is after revenge on Barford and is planning to kill him.

Chater dons his uniform and hides in the woods. Will Chater get Barford, or will Jack Ford intervene?

RSM Ted Chater is played by David Daker.

I'm going to give you half a point Annie because only one is from the Flaxton Boys - but well done for identifying it!

Now we have answered the other half of the quiz, I can reveal that Annie is our runner-up with half a point. The overall prize winner is a Mr Og, c/- Bucol 2.

Which is good, because Og could do with a pair of overalls.

Hello? What's that? I need to give equal time to Gareth in a drama with David Daker? Er, I'll see what I can do!

I'd not heard of that rumour about the clip guns in 'The Worm That Turned', but would have thought it unlikely. That serial was in a series of The Two Ronnies shown in November/December 1980, so would have been recorded probably some months earlier, and as they didn't even start recording S4 of Blake's 7 until February 1981 the props likely wouldn't have been built at that stage anyway.

Gareth Thomas did also briefly appear in another, earlier, Public Eye episode, 'The Man Who Didn't Eat Sweets', in 1971. As this character was also someone who had a car-hire business, it was probably meant to be the same person, although the credits give them different names.

Jack Ford, as played by James Bolam in When The Boat Comes In did seem a very Avon-esque character to me when I watched it.

It wasn't something I'd heard either but someone mentioned it earlier on this thread (back in 2014!). The first thing I had to do was identify which series of the Two Ronnies had 'The Worm that Turned'. As soon as I saw it was the 1980 series (series 8), I thought it was unlikely too. I thought I would have a look anyway, suspecting perhaps it was something that was later used as the basis for the clip guns. I seemed to recall that the gun Avon uses on Blake in the last episode was already in existence before S4 started. It was made as a 'modular' gun that could be added to (hence the variant we see in Warlord, used by the trooper emerging from the sand, and later Soolin). It was even put forward as a suggestion for the new S4 hand guns, so I didn't want to rule out any possibilities until I checked.

Once I started watching 'The Worm that Turned' I found it was nigh-on impossible to get a good look at the hand guns. They only appear a few times and briefly, and are usually being waved around too fast or in darkness. Thankfully I could zoom in on a couple of screenshots once I had them and see they were DL-44s.

Ah, "The Man Who Didn't Eat Sweets" - a Roobarbian favourite! I did that one a while back but the pictures on Photobucket have all gone to mush.

That's a good thought about Jack Ford being Avon-like. Perhaps because I'd done the Gareth pics, all I could think of was that James Bolam had also turned up in 'Public Eye', as a painter in "I Always Wanted a Swimming Pool". (And I wouldn't even remember the episode title if I didn't have a helpful PM on hand from 2016. Thanks F.L.!)

I've just watched part one of Beau Geste (BBC 1982). Lots of familiar names behind the scenes - Mat Irvine, Terrence Dicks, Barry Letts and Douglas Camfield. Also Pat Gorman and Harry Fielder playing two of the dead men at Fort Zinderneuf (along with John 'Boycie' Challis).

This wasn't my spot, but I thought it merited it being put on the Horizons site. Look who played Benni in today's Doctor Who Orphan 55. Colin Ferrell aka Gambril in Killer as Benni.

Tried to watch Alien Covenant. I got half way through and had to give up. Not because it was bad. I couldn't give you an opinion on that but...I have this problem with the Alien films. They are really interesting, original, great to look at and frightening...but the fear! They really get to me and mess with my mind. I'm very delicate you know...

Michael Keating plays Inspector Bell in a 1988 episode of 'King & Castle' (Thames, series 2 episode 4).

It's strange to see Mike Keating displaying such unVila-like expressions.

Ronald King (Derek Martin) runs a debt collection agency. David Castle (Nigel Planer) helps him out. Interesting to see this episode was written by Planer and fellow alternative comedian Andy De La Tour. De La Tour made appearances in The Young Ones and Filthy, Rich & Catflap, which of course Planer had leading roles in.

Inspector Bell only appears briefly at the end of the episode. He has about two lines and about a minute of air time.

Look at his expression in this last shot!
