In All Creatures Great and Small Ron Lacey played an old fried of Siegfried and got him hopelessly drunk when he was just applying for a posh job at the turf ... here he is trying to double-cross Avon ... beware old frieds!


Now you have me intrigued. I loved All Creatures but cannot remember that episode. Ron Lacey was an excellent actor. Loved him as the Nazi in Indiana Jones, Raiders of the Lost Arc. -P


He was in the very first episode of Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased) in 1969 - my absolute favourite programme at the time!


What! Better than Blake's 7??!! Surely not!!


In 1969 it was!


You have to remember that alot of people on here weren't even around in 1969!


Oh believe me, I know, I know! Getting back on topic, Ronald Lacey played 'a Beatnik' in Randall & Hopkirk! When was the last time you heard that term?

*sigh* When will sci-fi authors ever learn that space is not flat?


No your right, it is not flat and flames do not burn up in space so imagination is required. Having said that if you take a look at most star maps(the Cambridge Star Atlas comes to mind), they are of course flat, as are all aeronautical maps. Why? Simple. We work better with 2D representations than 3D representations which confuse us. Just imagine that the future is a place where computers take the headache out of having to think of everything in 3D all the time. Also even though planets etc are in 3D, if you zoom out from a galaxy and look at it side on, it's practically a flat disc, just like the rings of Saturn. Isn't that interesting?

In terms of moving towards an object from another object, while a spacecraft may need to travel at a certain angle, the fact remains that just like the crows fly, there is still a direct path which is generally taken from point A to point B and orbital mechanics aside, this can be treated as a straight line on a 2D map.

Finally can you imagine the cost of doing a 3D star chart etc at the time of Blakes 7 production?

You know, that's near enough what Mat Irvine said back at Edgecon in 1982!! Great minds etc!!!
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

Wow that's certainly a great thing to know, thanks littlesue. Well you can't argue with the creator of the final incantation of Orac.

For what they had, just about every prop with the exception of the paper mache spider is terrific in my mind and still is now. Even the Michelin men costumes hold up pretty well. Then there's the unforgettable models. (I even thought the invasion fleet bowl upside down ship was pretty clever considering how quickly they would have had to come up with the ships. The hairdryer ship fondly comes to mind too. Smile ).
