Dayna: I'm going to fancy dress as a harp.
Tarrant: Too small to be a harp.
Dayna: Are you calling me a lyre?

Vila: You watch out for the policeman, I'll watch for the crocodile.
Dayna: He mustn't get our sausages.
Vila: That's the way to do it.

The episode: Colin Nine – Sarcophagus (Carry On Kissing Corpses aka Carry On Shipping)
The date: Tuesday, September 10th, 2019
The time: 7.45pm UK time

In which writer Tanith Lee comes into the series and gives us a Liberator-based fantasy-based episode which is very character-driven and delightfully different, as well as an episode where the actual writer starts ‘shipping Cally and Avon, as the subtext becomes the text. Also, Vila does a few musical tricks and Dayna starts singing. All together now: “I left my world to wander in this endless midnight sky, for space is just a starry night where no suns ever rise." And Jan Chappell looks absolutely stunning as the undead alien and puts in a fabulous performance.

Episode in a word: Necrophilia.
Character to cheer: Avon saves the day in this one, so it’s him. Considering his metaphorical death at the end of the previous episode, he’s actually in pretty fine form.
Character to boo: I appreciate the Alien was manipulating events due to extent during the argument between Tarrant and Avon, but Tarrant was still being a right git.
Is Soolin looking lovely this week: Yes.
Recognisable Face: Given the only extras in this episode are in the opening scene and in heavy make-up, it has to be one of the main cast. Let’s go for: Steven Pacey (Tarrant) who played the vicar in Troubles and Strife, a sitcom from the 1980s. Not a particularly great sitcom from what I recall, but it was on prime-time television.
Best exchange: AVON: “Regret is part of being alive. But keep it a small part.” CALLY: “As you do?” AVON: “Demonstrably.”

Bit undecided here - which do people prefer? Carry On Shipping or Carry On Kissing Corpses?

LOL TT!
Loved your description. Yes, the exchange about regret is my favorite too! And Cally and Avon both look stunning there, ahh...

Was trying to think of a funny picture too, here's the one. Avon and Cally in parental roles. Grin
"What have you done to our little Vila?!"

I humbly submit that the best exchange in this episode, indeed one of the best exchanges in the entire series, is non verbal.
The exchange of looks between Avon and Cally at the end of this episode.

While I don't personally ship them, that exchange of looks, even with no dialog, reveals the depth of understanding between the two.

Sarchophagus is an episode that divides opinion (fandom).I like it myself though I know some people hate it. I even like Dayna's song, which neatly divides the episode into two acts, Shakespeare style.

My Grandson when first watching B7 told me that he not only liked watching what was going on in the background, but also that there was a lot more being unsaid than said (if that makes sense!)

Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

Agreed. It is a fantastic moment, all the better for it not being rushed. It still takes my breath away.

Another moment from this episode is the beautiful tracking shot when Avon has taken the ring and the alien is begging to be allowed to live. Considering they were still using those big cameras it is a brilliant moment.

My conclusion at the of age of six in 1980 was that Avon and Cally were boyfriend and girlfriend. Wink

The whole direction is superb. Fiona Cumming did a wonderful job on the episode.
