42nd Anniversary Rewatch - A7 Mission To Destiny
trevor travis
The episode: Albert Seven – Mission To Destiny (Carry On Space Poirot)
The date: Tuesday, February 18th, 2019
The time: 7.45pm UK time

In which Avon and Cally find out whodunit, while Blake goes on a trip that takes four days one way and five minutes to return.

Episode in a word: 54124.
Character to cheer: Space Poirot, of course. Although he’s the one who misreads it in the first place as 5-4-1-2-4 when it blatantly says S-A-R-A. And he also reveals the murderer with his back turned to her. So, Space Poirot, 9/10 for style, but 1/10 for execution.
Character to boo: Blake - for being judge, jury and executioner in the final scene.
Recognisable Face: Brian Hopwood (Rafford) was nice Mr Hopwood in Grange Hill. He also played a nasty murderer in Coronation Street. He only lasts one scene in this episode, before writing S-A-R-A using his own blood as he dies. Who would do that? Someone who badly needed a pen (obligatory Red Dwarf reference).
Is Soolin looking lovely this week?: Yes.
Best exchange: It’s gotta be: CALLY: “My people have a saying, a man who trusts can never be betrayed, only mistaken.” AVON: “Life expectancy must be fairly short among your people.”

Blake's 7 will return in... Carry On Throwing Nuts.

The other theory is that Jenna is like Holly in Red Dwarf - she doesn't know how to steer the Libby, so simply goes around in circles.

In this episode, once leaving the Ortega she travels 359.9 degrees in a clockwise circle, leaving her just 0.1 degrees to end up back at the Ortega once it's found the Neutrotope is missing.

I realise that there is always great confusion about which episode we are going to watch, when it comes to Mission To Destiny, because there are several other episodes with very similar names. To clarify, we are not watching any of the following B7 episodes:

Mission To Dentistry:
Blake develops really bad toothache and is in an even worse mood than usual. But a trip to the dentist can cause problems… especially when the dentist is a big fan of Travis.

Mission To Dysentery:
Fending off ten Federation Pursuit ships simultaneously is never easy. But it’s even more difficult when the crew have diarrhoea, thanks to Cally undercooking her Auron Veggie Chilli Burgers.

Missionary Position on Destiny:
A Season C story. The Ultra recapture Dayna and Tarrant, and want yet more information on the human bonding ceremony (this story is banned in many countries due to its explicit content).

Mission To Dynasty:
Servalan and Alexis Colby both have problems with blokes called Blake… so they decide to pool their resources and also their shoulder pads.

Mission To Destiny Of The Daleks:
A Blake’s 7 / Doctor Who crossover episode, starring Gareth Thomas as Blake, Paul Darrow as Avon, Tom Baker as the Doctor, David Gooderson as Davros and Tom Chadbon as the naked, bound prisoner.


We are NOT watching any of the above five episodes, which all have to wait for another time. However, we are watching:

Mission To Destiny:
Avon and Cally solve a murder mystery on the Ortega, Blake goes off on a wild goose chase and then takes 5 minutes to do a journey which took 100 hours going the other way, and Travis does… well, nothing because he’s not in this episode.

Thank you for clarifying which episode we will be watching tonight. I have now put the right disc in....
By the way, I absolutely love this episode.
I don't mind the glaring plot holes..this is B7 and the remit was action adventure...and of course it has the first sighting of our lovely Stuart Fell, doing what he does best...falling off the cupboard. (Just how did 54124 get Stu up there? The same way Dayna managed to get Avon all the way to the cave in Aftermath; I presume they had both had their Weetabix that morning.)
Speaking of grub up. I must go and get my tea, biccies and choccies ready......
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

Thank God it's not Mission to Dysentry. There's no space izal paper in this episode until Avon solves the mystery at the end...the end of the episode.

Hello all! Nice to see everyone this week. Ready for this 'who-done-it?'

Hi everyone, looks like I'll be able to watch at work today. Hurray!

...and of course, despite the set falling to pieces Mr Thomas continues with the scene....

Hello! I have remembered it’s Tuesday. I have remembered not to sit in the chair which I was darning, and still has a needle in the seat.
I bet I’ve forgotten something else, but I shall remain in blissful ignorance for the next hour...

I forgot how good the 1st part of the titles was. I love the music on the Liberator emerging mysteriously from space.

What use is a lump hammer on a space ship?

STARTED!!!

Soolin is looking lovely this week - she'll have the murder mystery sorted out in no time, so we can then switch to watching Missionary Position On Destiny.
