The episode: Colin Eight Ė Rumours Of Death (Carry On Killing Squirrels)
The date: Tuesday, August 27th, 2019
The time: 7.45pm UK time

In which we return to Earth for the third and final time, just in time for a coup against Servalanís Presidency, which by a huge, whacking, massive coincidence that you have to forgive television for sometimes is led by Avonís girlfriend just as he is returning to take revenge against those responsible for her death. But the rumours of her death have been greatly exaggerated, although Avon can fix that for us, so that he can steal the Mark Twain quote all for himself. Also, Avon needs a shave and a good clean-up (any volunteers to help out with the scrubbing brush?), Bercol gets a new job, and the poor security chaps find out this day is quite a bit worse than others.

Episode in a word: Dark. Or maybe Magnificent, because this is one of the best 55 minutes of television that youíre likely to see.
Characters to cheer: Not sure if there is anyone. Actually, letís go for Servie (yes, I know, I always go for Servie, butís she the best and most stylish villain in anything ever, so there!). She maintains her dignity throughout, whether being abducted from her own office, or being chained to a wall in her own cellar. And Forres provides a bit of comic relief. Well, until he dies, of course. Itís THAT kind of episode.
Actor to cheer: Paul Darrow puts in the performance of his career, as Avon gradually finds out the truth behind his ďdeadĒ girlfriend.
Characters to boo: Vila, for almost getting Avon killed at the end. Itís one occasion where he needed to be just a bit alert and sober for just a few hours. And Anna Grant or Bartolomew or Sula or whatever sheís calling herself this week is a bit of a rotter, to be honest. She clearly is after taking Servieís place, whatever he tries to claim.
Recognisable Face: David Haig (Forres) has gone on to carve out a career as a very well-respected actor and playwright. Plus the dead squirrel reappeared in an episode of Blackadder The Third.
Best exchange: I could quote the whole cellar scene, which is simply brilliant from beginning to end. But letís go for: AVON: ďHave you murdered your way to the wall of an underground room?Ē SERVALAN: ďIt's an old wall, Avon, it waits. I hope you don't die before you reach it.Ē

I would like to step forward and offer to hold that scrubbing brush! Lurena is on her hols so someone has to do it.....
BTW Mr Huggy...my keyboard is nice and dry...but I think I will need one or two tissues to hand, so the keyboard could end up a bit damp at the end of this episode.
Having watched this with a load of other fans on a big TV at Space City in 1985 (or was it 86), I can vouch for it being a rather emotional journey when in the company of like minded individuals....

I thought you were referring to the squirrel. (Eeek! Bang! Squirrels. I hate them) (Black Adder reference).

It is a great episode. Brilliantly acted by most especially Paul Darrow. Not so much from the actor playing Anna Grant. Jacqueline Pearce is amazing as always...and that scene between PD and JP...WOW! However, I don't love this episode. I admire it...there's always one!AngryGrin
