41st Anniversary Rewatch - B11 Gambit
trevor travis
The episode: Barney Eleven – Gambit (Carry On Space Gambling)
The date: Tuesday, June 18th, 2019
The time: 7.45pm UK time

In which Blake’s continuing attempts to find Star One are completely overshadowed by Avon and Vila going on a gambling spree with the help of Orac; Servie as the Lady In Red; and Travis, who seems to be playing a wronged hero from a western. Now, where’s my chess set?

Episode in a word: OTT.
Characters to cheer: The Lady In Red. Servie is simply wonderful in the hands of Robert Holmes – pass that dictionary! Krantor and Toise are a great double act, while Avon and Vila trying to play innocent in the final scene is a hoot. Even the minor characters in this are terrific, such as the sadistic Klute, the scene-stealing Croupier, and of course, Servie's rather thick powder puff.
Character to boo: Blake for not killing Travis at the end – a decision that nearly ended in the galaxy being conquered by aliens.
Recognisable Faces: Aubrey Woods (Krantor) played the Controller in “Day Of The Daleks”, a Doctor Who serial from 1972. Again, he’s under silver make-up. I’m sure I also recognise the voice of John Leeson (Toise) from somewhere. If he said “Master” or “Mistress”, it might help me remember where from!
Best line: “When the Federation finally cleans out this cesspit, I shall have that vulpine degenerate eviscerated with a small and very blunt knife.”

Blake's 7 will return in… Carry On Space Camping

KRANTOR: Try a pataki cake.
SERVALAN: A what?
KRANTOR: They contain the distilled venom of a local reptile, and the effects are highly stimulating.
SERVALAN: Are sure that they’re not fruit pastilles?

Those look like those horrible fruit sweeties my grandmother liked.

They had a liquid centre which tasted vile..

Hurrah!
GARETH THOMAS: Paul is a very generous man, as a human being and as an actor. The programme couldn’t have been made if we hadn’t got on. Our working relationship was magic.

Evening all! Oops

Haven't got any pataki cakes to accompany this episode. Although that might actually be a good thing.

Just coffee here, I’m afraid.
Good evening, everybody!

Peppermint tea, and matzo crackers with peanut butter.
Mini Halva pieces doubling as pataki cakes. Yum!
