Great theory. That makes much more sense than figuring out the controls of an alien spaceship within 10 minutes.


Oh yes, and it happens again when Servalan wants to fly Liberator. It can not be her doing the piloting. It must be Liberator/Zen. I'll come back to that later.


It must her people doing it in Terminal, though. No poor old Zen by then.

Great episode - thank you all for the company!

Speedy recovery, Orac v Zen, and good luck with your move, Stormy!

Good night! Oops

Hmm... Yes... Very Plausible. Any input at the pilot station (like pressing Any Key on a computer) wakes the ship up and prepares it for flight, closing all exterior hatches and moving clear of any navigational hazards, like CAS London.

And Jenna only pressed one button. Yes, that works.

Blake is a lousy poker player.

Should have said that the others were dead, but he was still checking.


Yep. Blake should've said anything *except* for that they were alright! A blood-curdling scream would have sufficed Smile
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."

Ah, THAT makes sense! It wasn't just a very lucky guess from Jenna.

Blake isn't that bright.

The first time I saw Blake's 7, around about 1984 or 85 on Chicago Public Television, this is the episode that hooked me.

And Zen must be part cat because he chose Blake Avon and Jenna as cats sometimes choose where to live...does that count as this week's obligatory Red Dwarf reference?

Ooh naughty. Good job Blake is on the other side of the galaxy when you said that. Very wise...

After the horror of the massacre and the charges and the baddies winning in the 1st episode, this definitely raised a cheer in our household.

I love Space Fall, but The Way Back is utterly exceptional. Did you miss the first episode?

No, I saw TWB, and was intrigued, but I was not 'hooked' until about halfway through Spacefall.
I think it might have been Jenna baiting Raiker that did it.

Fair point.

Always fascinated what hooked people. For me, it was Aftermath at the age of six-and-three-quarters, which I'd only been allowed to stay up and see because it was the school holidays. Both my dad and I were hooked.

My dad also hadn't been watching it until then. I used to get info from my babysitter as to what had happened before I'd started watching. I remember her telling me that Vila had a friend, but he'd been killed.

It was the 1st episode for me. A hero accused of molesting kids?! Serious stuff, I thought. If they can do that what else will they do? I thought Gareth Thomas was completely brilliant and it was hard to look at anyone else on screen. He drew the eye from day one.
