UK Rewatch - A2 Space Fall
trevor travis
The episode: Albert Two - Space Fall (Carry On Convict)
The date: Tuesday, January 12th, 2021
The time: 7.45pm UK time

In which Nova shaves for the first time with disastrous results, and Jenna whispers sweet nothings to Raiker. And can everyone check down the back of their sofas, to see if they can find the missing four months before this episode and the next, despite one carrying on from the other? Oh, and how can I forget… a certain character who will play a major part in the series appears for the first time! Welcome… Olag Gan!

Episode in a word: Liberator!
Character to cheer: Commander Leylan is a sign that many half decent people work for the Federation... well except when he turns a blind eye to Raiker's activities.
Character to boo: Raiker is thoroughly nasty throughout.
Is Soolin looking lovely this week?: Yes.
Recognisable Face: Tom Kelly (Nova) played a ghostly soldier in Adventure Two of Sapphire and Steel. That's the one set at the Railway Station.
Best exchange: BLAKE: "Not until free men can think and speak. Not until power is back with the honest man.” AVON: “Have you ever met an honest man?" JENNA: “Perhaps.”

Blake’s 7 will return in… Carry On SHOUTING

Well, Mum,

Here I am on my way to a penal colony. They say prison changes a person, but I didn’t realize it happened so fast. I mean, I boarded the ship, and by the time I turned around and took my seat, almost everyone had changed. A lot. They’re like a different group of people, except Blake and Jenna and me.

I’m afraid this may be my last letter. I bribed that nice Mister Artix to post it for me when he gets back to Earth.

The other officer, Mister Raiker, isn’t so nice. He’s one of those who enjoys giving us a hard time. I hear he was head of security on some super secret giant space station until some hot shot kid in a T-16, or something like that, blew it up and he got demoted. Haven’t seen him lately. I wonder what happened.

We tried to take over the ship. I did my part, opening doors, though I did have a gun malfunction. Of course, we failed, or I should say, Blake failed (he’s that trouble making Alpha I made friends with, the one who kept losing his watch). He caved, but maybe it’s a good thing for me he did, as I’d been caught.

It gets worse. You warned me never to trust an Alpha, but I didn’t listen. Those two Alphas I mentioned in my last letter, well, they met a third Alpha, stole a ship, and scarpered, leaving me behind.

That’s gratitude for you. Next stop Cygnus Alpha. I hope the food is good.

Love, Vila

Brad, I'm laughing my socks off. However, I wonder how someone can attack a space station with a T-16. But maybe the young hot shot was Zebedäus Roster with his space locomotive Black Lizzy.

You shall force me to reveal the depths of my Star Wars nerdiness.....

The T16 is the model ship Luke is playing with in the garage while he is supposed to be cleaning 3PO and R2. He apparently also owns one (or the farm does). "I used to bullseye womp rats in my T16 back home and they are not much bigger than 2 meters."

Now, here is where it gets super nerdy....

In the novelisation, which is based on the original script, not the finished movie, Luke wonders aloud if he can fly an X Wing into combat, and Biggs assures him it handles just like a T16, only faster. When Luke gets 'a little cooked,' after a low strafing run, he laments that it, "Doesn't exactly handle like a T16."

TT: you mentioned Gan, but isn't there the first appearance of another character that plays an important part in the series as well?

Isn't T16 also the designation of the federation transport ship in Moloch?

Just getting ready, tea, choccie and biccies. Now, back in Jan 1978 I was getting my 11 month old daughter, Nikki, to sleep..well trying anyway, and making sure the phone was off the hook. Alas Julie had taken the double page poster back home so I was trying to remember who else was on that poster....I didn't have long to wait..and no, it wasn't that chap called Olag Gan; it was the chap with the coloured ring binder circle thingies.
Suddenly, Nikki no longer had ALL my attention...and she's never forgiven Mr Nation or Mr D since!!!

Apologies, Lorna, that's what passes for wit on this ship.
