42nd Anniversary Rewatch - D8 Games
trevor travis
The episode: Derek Eight – Games (Carry On Up The Quarry Yet Again)
The date: Tuesday, November 24th, 2020
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
A member of the main cast wears the same costume as last week (per costume) 2
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
Someone is killed with a Mecronian knife 3

Back to the episode, and the crew go on a location visit to Winspit Quarry, only to find Servie is doing exactly the same thing. Meanwhile, Vila gets trod on and mounts a one-man rescue; Soolin is able to outshoot a quicker version of herself; Tarrant again proves that he can’t land a ship; and Orac starts an affair with one of Gambit's circuit boards.

Episode in a word: Games (yup, another episode which does exactly what it says on the tin).
Character to cheer: Vila, who proves to be a rather good one-man back-up squad.
Characters to boo: Tarrant and Dayna for walking into a very obvious trap – just as well Vila is around to save them (see above).
Is Soolin looking lovely this week: Yes.
Recognisable Face: Stratford Johns (Belkov) had a wide-ranging CV. He was famous for being in Z Cars, while he also appeared in the 1982 Doctor Who serial “Four To Doomsday”.
Best exchange: TARRANT: “Why should this middle-aged Federation professor want to help you, Avon?” AVON: “Because apart from being a brilliant geologist and an expert in mining techniques, he is also greedy, avaricious, and a crook.” VILA: “Has he got any faults?”

Blake's 7 will return in “Carry On Getting Sand In Your Pants”.

These rewatch thread intros always make me laugh! It's really quite a coincidence that the crew and Servie both choose the same location visit and on the same day, LOL Grin
Avon: "Not enough! Not nearly enough! Dammit, what weighs seventy kilos?"
Orac: "Vila weighs seventy-three kilos, Avon."
Avon: "Vila, are you here? I need your help."

Or maybe it's Huggy and I messing about at Winspit Quarry a few years ago!

I also tried to load Clanger's video from the location visit, but the BBC have banned it on copyright grounds. So, yes, the BBC now seem to own Clanger Shock

Which is especially sad since Vivienne Cozens approved of the little film!
