UK Rewatch - A4 Time Squad
trevor travis
The episode: Albert Four – Time Squad (Carry On Homicidal Maniac)
The date: Tuesday, January 26th, 2020
The time: 7.45pm UK time

In which the seven are complete, and Jenna finds out about Gan's limiter while they try to keep the homicidal maniacs at bay. And talking of homicidal maniacs (well, as far as the Federation are concerned), Blake starts his terror campaign by blowing up Oldbury Power Station.

Episode in a word: Cally.
Character to cheer: Our favourite guerrilla fighter does make a memorable debut here by kicking Blake’s ass.
Characters to boo: The homicidal maniacs, obviously.
Is Soolin looking lovely this week?: Yes.
Recognisable Face: The three…. sorry four (spoilers!) homicidal maniacs are played by extras and don’t get any dialogue. So let’s concentrate on someone else, even though we probably also see the odd flash of his face. Frank Maher does the stuntwork here. He was in tons of shows, including the Avengers, where he was beaten to a pulp by Honor Blackman and Diana Rigg on a regular basis. Oh, and he was Patrick McGoohan's double in the Prisoner.
Best line: What could it be apart from: “I plan to live forever. Or die trying.”

Blake’s 7 will return in… Carry On Again Homicidal Maniac

Well, Mum, we are well and truly away. That ship those Alphas stole (Jenna prefers the word “Salvaged,” much like Uncle Bardolph preferred the words “Fell Off The Back Of A Wagon.”), yes, this ship can outrun anything the Feds can send after it.

Now I know what Uncle Bardolph would say, he’d say, “Vila, my lad, first rule of the trade, when you’ve been spotted, it’s time to scarper, and once you’ve scarpered, it’s time to lay low until the heat is off.” Unfortunately, Blake isn’t in a mood to listen to Uncle Bardolph’s excellent advice.

So, it’s a good thing Jenna is a good pilot. And she seems to have gotten past the ‘Let’s push this button and see what happens,’ phase of figuring out how to fly this ship.

We were on our way to blow up a Federation Control Center and help the local rebels. At least it’s a long way away, kind of like hitting the bank across town after you’ve set off the alarm at the downtown depository.

On the way we picked up a small alien ship with a few sleepy aliens inside. I don’t like it. Small alien ships are always trouble. You always have to look for hidden compartments. My shipmates aren’t concerned. You’d think none of them have ever seen Quatermass and the Pit, but I know Blake has.

At least I didn’t have to baby sit (alien sit) them as Blake took me down to meet the rebels (and pick some locks). Turned out to be only one rebel, Cally. She says she’s from Auron. I think her people must be descended from the English. Who else would think bright red makes a good outfit for military operations?

You can tell the Feds didn’t build our ship, because they never do anything new when they can copy something old. That complex we came to blow up looks just like that old power station in Gloucestershire. Anyway, we blew it up, had a close call when it came time to scarper, but we made it.

And Cally joined us. Jenna wasn’t happy. Turns out those sleepy aliens weren’t so sleepy, and they had friends hiding in the back (I told you, didn’t I? Just like Quatermass and the Pit). Having just fended off a gang of aliens, Jenna wasn’t too happy about taking Cally on board, but I think Cally will be all right. For starters, she’s got nice legs.

That's all for now. Sounds like Blake is already planning more trouble for the Feds (and for us).

Love, Vila.

AVON: It is your assumption that we are entitled to it as well that is irritating.

Lorna.... Vila thinks the power station is in Gloucestershire because when it comes to geography, he really DID rate fourth grade ignorant. (yes, that one was just for you).

Thanks, I am loving Vila's letters.
And as the county boundaries change all the time in the UK, perhaps Oldbury will be in Gloucestershire at some point. When I first worked there it was in the county of Avon, which was then ruthlessly axed!!Angry

Dear Brad...how is Vila's Mum getting the letters that he so lovingly writes...Space Royal mail? Space UPS? Space Fedex?? And does she have to pay any excess postage? This is keeping me awake at night....Grin
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

Vila explained this in so many words. He sent the first letter home via that nice Mister Artix on CAS London.
The subsequent letters are being electronically transmitted courtesy of Zen's carrier wave.
Eventually he will use the Orac Delivery Service.

I'm not sure if I will be able to join tonight. We have power outages off and on since the riots we had last night.
Really frightening to see "troopers" in my street, police, fully kitted up:

It’s kind of awful but I watched ‘Time Squad’ last week straight after ‘Cygnus Alpha’, because I just couldn’t wait for a week.

I’m sorry, everybody. I await your judgement and discipline.Angry

Go straight to Cygnus Alpha. Do not pass ze Klute or you won't be collecting ANY money and you will be a lump of charcoal on a penal colony.

Hope there is power for you for the rewatch. Then you can be with the B7 family. Stay safe.

Hi Lorna, good luck with the bridge match. I suspect, unlike Avon and Vila, you don't need a mini-Orac to help you win.
 
Travisina
Hi - just stopping by to say hello. Can't join you tonight, but will be watching this ep on Saturday morning.

Good luck with the bridge match, Lorna.
Stay safe, Lurena!
