41st Anniversary Rewatch - D4 Stardrive
trevor travis
The first in our double header this week – don’t forget we’re back on Wednesday for the next episode…

The episode: Derek Four – Stardrive (Carry On Space Petrol Heads)
The date: Tuesday, November 5th, 2019
The time: 7.45pm UK time

A reminder of the Season Derek drinking game, with one special addition for this episode:

Here’s the number of sips/swigs per each of these:
Avon is knocked unconscious 1
A scientist dies (per scientist) 5
There’s the sequence (or part of the sequence) of Scorpio landing / taking off at Xenon Base 3
Vila drinks something red (per scene) 10
Tarrant falls in love 5
Soolin shoots someone (per person) 5
Slave says “sorry” 1
Each mention of “Sleer” 2
There’s a long, lingering shot of Avon, Tarrant and Soolin 3
Avon laughs manically and/or smiles inappropriately 5
A member of the main cast is killed or stunned (per cast member) 1 bottle of wine / 1 can of beer

Back to the episode, and there’s a highly dramatic beginning and end but lots of long, lingering shots of a certain computer expert, a certain pilot and a certain blonde lady gunslinger in the middle (steady!). And all those knocks to the head in “Power” seem to have affected Avon’s memory – he can’t remember the scientist he killed 15 seconds earlier. Oh, and we learn a very important lesson. Never pop out to the toilet at a vital time. Dr Plaxton’s assistant does that and by the time he’s back, the Stardrive is gone, Dr Plaxton is gone and he’s left to the mercy of the Space Rats.

Episode in a word: Speed.
Characters to cheer: It simply has to be Vila. I love the scene where he pretends to be drunk, where he reveals how they can survive, while avoiding doing the dirty work himself.
Character to boo: Orac. The damn thing had spotted the Space Rats’ vehicle, but won’t tell the crew and makes them watch through the whole thing frame-by-frame to spot it themselves. It’s about time they took Vila’s advice and redesigned Orac into a drink dispenser.
Is Soolin looking lovely this week: Yes.
Recognisable Face: Barbara Shelley (Dr Plaxton) was the leading lady of Hammer Horror.
Best exchange: VILA: “Friends? Space Rats? There's no such thing as a friend of a Space Rat -- they even hate each other.” TARRANT: “What else do you know about them?” VILA: “They're maniacs, psychopaths! All they live for is sex and violence, booze and speed. And the fellas are just as bad.”

Blake's 7 will return (tomorrow!) in “Carry On Og, Saviour Of The Universe.”

Hugbot - ahahah, I remember that moment and that gives an interesting twist to it. Smile It's even better in S4 behind-the-scenes.

Dear Huggy at least I didn't spill my wine this time either.
Just getting ready...didn't think I would make it. I had to take Grandson to work in the shopping village of Whitely, just over the M27. Took about 10 minutes to get there.....and 50 mins to get out!!!!!
I think I may need 2 glasses of wine!!!!
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

There may be ample opportunities for a swig or two (or three or ...) in this episode!

Either the Space Rats are shooting at defenceless spacecraft outside my window, or someone’s having a firework display.

Just trying to find somewhere a bit less noisy to watch (the episode, not the explosions).
