Too much is made of Vila's drinking. In fact, his drinking really only gets out of control in the final series.


Agreed. The lowest point is probably Avon having to bribe him with half a glass of wine in order to get him to clean out the ballast tank in Animals.

Next to Tarrant, Vila probably suffers the worst from inconsistent writing.

All writers see him as comic relief, and a tad lazy. Some only see him as a foil and fool, while others see him as a complex character who can be quite clever and dangerous if the need arises.

Terry Nation seemed to hold the latter view, giving Vila a bit of a dark side to go with his caution.

To begin with, certainly - but rewatching Countdown I was cross that Vila had been written as being stupid and annoying in that ep. Terry's revenge for not being allowed to kill him off? He seems to have fallen out of love with the character by that point.

There's no point being grown up if you can't be childish sometimes

Terry did try to get rid of Vila again in Star One along with Jenna (but failed, thankfully).

There was really only one instance of him being stupid as I recall and I'd have said it was necessary for some aspects of the plot to work. Not the way I like writers to make plots work but it was a long way from being the worst instance in the series overall

I was reading this page with details of Romainian Myths, Heroes and Monsters: http://www.theinc...nd-heroes/

The last part, about the hero Făt-Frumos, tells how the young prince makes an oath to scour the world for the secret of immortality, or die trying. Remind you of anyone?

The worst contender for Vila being stupid is Ultraworld, where the resolution to the story relies on Vila being a complete and utter moron.
