Shakespeare soup!


Yes, you're absolutely right. I think it IS Shakespeare soup ... with extra dress-ups.

This scene (exterior fight with the Goths, Vila off to the side etc) is very very clunky - it's one of my main irks. I can tell that the editor did what was possible, but that there just wasn't enough film coverage of the scene to make it work smoothly. I'm tempted to blame the director, but we don't know what challenges they were facing on location that day. Maybe a batch of rushes were unusable? Sometimes a whole roll could end up scratched or over/under-exposed or spoiled during processing (a whole day's filming of Prime Suspect was lost when the lab processing the film broke down...)


That is fascinating! Although a shame. I never considered rolls of film getting spoiled being a reason why location shoots don't have enough footage.


Yep, the UK will be an experiement in herd immunity when we remove restrictions on the 19th.

"And on, with luck, to Star One". Cheesy line, Jenna. No sign of remorse for your ex pair-bondee, either.
Still, nice to watch it with all of you. Thanks for being there, folks. See you next time.
You're not sulking, I hope?

"Liberated... a Blake below" - Vila being super clever, telling Jenna what's going on.


These are the sorts of reasons I like this ep. There's a lot of clever interplay.

It's one of my fave moments in this ep.


"A fool knows everything and nothing" is so clever. I like the writing in this one, especially as a LOT of ground is covered.

Yes, it's very clever. And the Fool has such a lovely voice.


He does. The man - actor - himself is a mystery, but he has such a wonderful Turkic name – Cengiz Saner. He's really the starting point for my imaginings/story construction.

I've never seen that - sounds interesting.

It's my fave version. Stars Jon Finch and Francesca Annis as Mr & Mrs McB, and a young Martin Shaw as Banquo! You can see some scenes on YouTube -
Opening with Witches

Jon Finch and Francesca Annis are just to-die-for gorgeous, too. Polanski was such a clever film-maker. Can't take your eyes off, whatever happens.

I don't think she particularly cared for him - just went along with things in the interest of survival / finding the location of Star One.

Still, nice to watch it with all of you. Thanks for being there, folks. See you next time.

Great to see you too, M!

Bye everyone. I didn't have enough time in ten mins so far to catch up with your posts. I hope you're all well though.

MrsB - sorry to hear your jab was delayed, but I hope your new date is soon.


I hope I can make next week for Star One, but it's the Bristol Beer and Blake's 7 meetup at noon.

Oh yes, the B&B7. I'm not sure whether we'll be doing something else then. So happy for you guys that you can get out to something like that. Have a great time Clare and we'll see you when we see you.

Ha! And rewatching that scene + opening credits for the first time in ages, I've spotted a B7 connection - Paul Shelley and our very own Bruce Purchase from this ep!
That's witchcraft indeed...

The story is played beautifully in period, with light-touch special fx in keeping with the mood and style. Is this a dagger I see before me

Thanks, Obsidian! I'm really looking forward to it, as my first ever B7 real life meetup, and especially as it's been so long since I've been to a pub (or almost anywhere social).
I enjoyed reading about why this is one of your favourite episodes - It wasn't for me so much, but I'll watch it in a new light now.
I was a little concerned about one revelation you made... Although the "Double, Double, Toilet trouble" made me laugh out loud!

OC Virn - I wish you hadn't asked Obsidian what was the 'fun' she wanted to have with the spiky weapons *gulp* (Though, if you hadn't ask, I would have).

Anne Arthur - Sorry I missed you again, but Hi!

Travisina - Yes, the meetup is next Saturday. Thanks for the Macbeth link.


Till next time, everyone!
