42nd Anniversary Rewatch - D2 Power
trevor travis
The episode: Derek Two – Power (Carry On Space Rent-A-Tribe)
The date: Tuesday, October 13th, 2020
The time: 7.45pm UK time

A reminder of Season Derek drinking game, with a few additions:

Here’s the number of sips/swigs per each of these:
Avon is knocked unconscious 1
A scientist dies (per scientist) 5
A member of the main cast wears the same costume as last week 2 (per costume)
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” (each mention) 1
Each mention of “Sleer” 2
Avon laughs manically and/or smiles inappropriately 5
There’s a downbeat ending in sharp contrast to the jangly end theme 10
The final shot of the episode includes Paul Darrow 3
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, in which a certain blonde lady gunslinger disappears for the opening 45 minutes. Where could she be? A big clue is that I’ve found a long, lost document that reveals the original working title of this episode was “Power Shower”, but after the directive that Season Derek episodes all needed to be a single word (to fit on the graphics), the second half of that title was lost and discarded and only found by me on a scrap of paper found in the underground room under Xenon Base. Therefore, we can confirm the theory in the Maximum Power book that a certain blonde lady gunslinger spends those 45 minutes having a lengthy, hot, steamy, sexy shower involving plenty of soap and… (STEADY!).

Anyway, back to other events in this episode – Avon keeps on getting knocked unconscious (perhaps sustaining brain damage) and Vila contemplates a life living on nuts and berries, while there’s a somewhat subversive Battle Of The Sexes going on, as we learn never to judge a book by its cover.

Episode in a word: Moobs.
Character to cheer: Gunn Sar is wonderfully played by Dicken Ashworth and behind all the bluster and those Moobs, he turns out to be a great, big softie, who loves his wife and does needlework.
Character to boo: On the other hand, Pella turns out to be a thoroughly nasty piece of work who kills own her friend.
Is Soolin looking lovely this week: See above (BTW the answer is yes!).
Recognisable Face: Juliet Hammond-Hill (Pella) also turned up in an episode of “Only Fools And Horses” a couple of years later in 1983, in which she played an attractive art collector. The character is almost exactly the same as Pella in that we’re supposed to be taken in by her beauty, only for her to turn out to be up to no good.
Best exchange: GUNN SAR: “What's the tally of challenges?” CATO: “Twenty-five dead and one missing, sir.” GUNN SAR: “Oh, come on, Cato. Don't quibble. Marquin fell backwards off the cliff.” CATO: “Yes, sir.” GUNN SAR: “So he's dead. Like, you can't say someone's missing as such. Not when they've taken a dive into a bottomless gorge.” CATO: “No sir.” GUNN SAR: “So, it's twenty-six dead.” CATO: “The council ruled it was twenty-five, sir, and one missing.” GUNN SAR: [to Avon] “Twenty-five men lie dead who tried to stand against me. And one, if he's not still falling, is no more than a greasy spot on the rocks, right?” AVON: “Impressive.” GUNN SAR: “You killed two men.” AVON: “If I'd known we were keeping score, I would have brought more ammunition.”

Blake's 7 will return in... “Carry On Trooper Orac.”

Very clear memories of watching this on first transmission. For context, in the days before spoilers, next week's Radio Times had just come out listing Servalan in the cast list. So that was the first time me and my parents found out she was still alive. This caused much discussion - because if she teleported off Liberator, she must have been on Terminal. The only way she could have got off Terminal was on Scorpio. So she must have been hiding away on Scorpio somewhere. Right until the last seconds of this episode we were expecting her to make a dramatic entrance.

Was also the last time there was no Commisioner Sleer nonsense in the series. Happy days.

The only escape vessel was Scorpio? Not necessarily. Remember, Our Glorious Leader is sometimes, shall we say, economical with the truth? Or perhaps her view of reality is rather wider than the narrow confines of Dorian's base. She had other ships, other possibilities. And used them.
You're not sulking, I hope?

I quite agree - that was just the way we were thinking in 1981.
