UK Rewatch - B11 Gambit
trevor travis
The episode: Barney Eleven – Gambit (Carry On Space Gambling)
The date: Tuesday, June 15th, 2021
The time: 7.45pm UK time

In which Blake’s continuing attempts to find Star One are completely overshadowed by: (1) Avon and Vila going on a gambling spree with the help of baby Orac, (2) Servie as the Lady In Red, (3) Travis, who seems to be playing a wronged hero from a western. Now, where’s my chess set?

Episode in a word: OTT.
Characters to cheer: The Lady In Red. Servie is simply wonderful in the hands of Robert Holmes – pass that dictionary! Krantor and Toise are a great double act, while Avon and Vila trying to play innocent in the final scene is a hoot. Even the minor characters in this are terrific, such as the sadistic Klute, the scene-stealing Croupier, and of course, Servie's rather thick powder puff.
Character to boo: Blake for not killing Travis at the end – a decision that nearly ended in the galaxy being conquered by aliens.
Is Soolin looking lovely this week?: Yes.
Recognisable Faces: Aubrey Woods (Krantor) played the Controller in “Day Of The Daleks”, a Doctor Who serial from 1972. In that he's also under silver make-up. I’m sure I also recognise the voice of John Leeson (Toise) from somewhere. If he said “Master” or “Mistress”, it might help me remember where from! Let's ask Pasco if he knows.
Best line: “When the Federation finally cleans out this cesspit, I shall have that vulpine degenerate eviscerated with a small and very blunt knife.”

Blake's 7 will return in… Carry On Space Camping

Dear Mum,

Remember old Uncle Ocean and how you said he was the most successful Restal Ever? Why do I mention him? Read on...

For once I got to take it easy, except for one little scare, but it worked out in the end.

The others went down to do the dirty work leaving Avon and I alone.

We had a little sleep.

Played a little chess.

And that’s all.

Really

Love, Vila.

P.S. Okay, I confess, that’s not quite all. We also experimented with Molecular Reduction Theory and bilked a casino out of ten million. And there were only two of us, not eleven. I’d like to see Uncle Ocean top that.

Ah, one of my favourite episodes: ‘Homes’ by Robert Gambit. It must be a direct ancestor of at least nine episodes of Red Dwarf.

Thankfully, I checked this thread before putting the kettle on and getting my breakfast cereal ready! Otherwise...it could have been a bit messy around this computer keyboard. (nice try though TT!!!)

Prawn cocktail ice cream... urgh. I’m in hell, and it’s full of Avons. None of them are touching the ice cream either...

But that scene of that rather nice computer expert having a dessert is one of my faves.
Strawberry ice cream is okay, but salted caramel...yum!!

That must have been very hard to say. I wonder if she did it in one take??
